But Wenger was keen to point out that Louis van Gaal’s side contained the likes of summer signings Memphis Depay and Morgan Schneiderlin in their starting XI.
“Let’s not go overboard,” he said.
“They still had a few millions [of pounds worth of talent] on the pitch. From [goalkeeper David] De Gea to the whole
midfield was experienced players … [Memphis] Depay, they spent a lot of money [on] him. You cannot call him a player
from the academy.”
Meanwhile, Wenger has denied his side had been lacking in “spirit and commitment.”
He told Sky Sports: “They scored the goals, we have to look at ourselves.
“Our spirit and commitment was 100 per cent there but it’s difficult to win away from home when you concede three
“We were strong enough but they stopped us a lot with little fouls. That was very frustrating. I could not question
our desire or commitment at all.”
