Arsene Wenger explains the most disappointing aspect of West Ham draw

The two sides drew 3-3 in a scintillating clash at Upton Park.

Arsene Wenger says his side rushing their football was the most disappointing aspect of their draw with West Ham, according to the club’s official website.

The two sides played out a scintillating London derby on Saturday afternoon, drawing 3-3 at Upton Park.

Wenger’s men had led 2-0 in the game before an Andy Carroll hat-trick saw the Hammers take a 3-2 lead.

Laurent Koscielny later leveled to make the score 3-3 and save his side a point. Ultimately, though, it was a disappointing result for the Gunners given their early lead.

For Wenger, though, the most disappointing aspect was the manner in which his side rushed their play.

"Overall, you can say it is not a bad result to draw here," he is quoted as saying by

"But in the context of the league, where we are and what we want to achieve, it is a very bad result for us. I wanted to win the game.

"In the end we had the opportunities to score a fourth goal, but we were not calm enough. I think we rushed our game in the box and that is disappointing."

The result was certainly a disappointing one for Wenger’s team, with it all but ending any hopes of Arsenal winning the Premier League title.

It leaves them ten points behind leaders Leicester City, who play Sunderland on Sunday and will be confident of extending their lead with a win over Sam Allardyce’s men.

Where that leaves Wenger remains to be seen, with questions sure to be asked in the summer after another disappointing, trophyless season.
