"I think the sending off hurt us more than them. It allowed them to sit back and hit us on the break. "We just did not have enough guile to draw Arsenal out. We never really got any momentum to put Arsenal under sustained pressure." Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "We were under pressure and we showed we can resist that and still play good football. "We showed solidarity, good technique and some wonderful movement. "The sending off looked harsh, although Gilberto reacted when he shouldn't. "But my team stuck together and that was the best answer and I am very proud."
