Wenger happy with Arsenal response to two “dangerous” losses


Suspended and in the stands, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger didn’t see Alexis Sanchez’s controversial handball goal from a 2-0 win over Hull City.

But the manager knows that Sanchez’s brace helped his Gunners to snap a two-match losing run and steady the ship for a moment.

Speaking on NBCSN after the game, Wenger said the heat his side has faced over the past two weeks is understandable but not anything that stayed in their focus.

“I believe every season you have some problems or some difficulties and it’s always the way you respond to some difficulties. When you do not win, you feel bad and that’s why it’s so dangerous to lose two games on the trot.”
