The Gunners boss talks about how it feels to be eliminated from the competition and names where his team went wrong in the tie.
“I am really sad to be out of the competition, congratulations to Southampton obviously to get through to the next round.
“Disappointed to be out and disappointed in the way we lost the game. Conceding again in an area where we cannot give the ball away.
“We had some issues in the first half controlling certain aspects. A lot of unforced errors as well, that was leading them to the high press that they do but when we break that pressure, we had two or three, in the first half, important moments but we didn’t hit the target.
“In the second half we produced, I think another two or three big chances but not enough to win the game.”
“The way we conceded the first goal was our own fault and we cannot do that, we have to compete in the game or you know you are out and we have to do that better but it’s a lesson”
