Wenger told Arsenal.com that the height and presence of Tottenham's two centre-halves was a factor they simply could not deal with.
"I have a lot of talent at my disposal but Tottenham are a very tall side. Players like Jan Vertongen and Younes Kaboul are very tall and they defended well.
"It’s a concern. We have lots of room for improvement and we need to do that quickly."
Arsenal are currently without their main threat in the air from attack with Olivier Giroud out injured, so the onus rests on the club's centre-backs to make an impact, which they were unable to do at the weekend.
