Arsenal manager Unai Emery reflects on 1-1 draw with Wolves.

“I'm disappointed with the result above all because I think the players tried,” says Gunners boss.

Arsenal played out a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton at the Emirates and after the Premier League clash on Saturday Unai Emery said he was disappointed with the result. The Gunners dropped two points when they hosted Wolves as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s 21st minute opener was cancelled out by Raul Jimenez in the 76 minute. “I'm disappointed with the result above all because I think the players tried, the players worked, and the most difficult thing against Wolves is to score the first goal and take advantage in the result,” Emery said as Arsenal.com quoted. “We needed to score the second goal to take more confidence than we had at 1-0 and also because they are a strong team defensively, but also they have the structure offensively. They have the habit of playing matches with that result and being consistent to try to score and draw.  “They did that and we lost the opportunity at 1-0. When they equalised, we tried. We got into the box, we created some chances which weren't very clear but we created them. Also, in the last moments when we were pushing a lot, they had good transitions, one or two transitions when they didn't score. I think it was an equal match and maybe we deserved it a little more than them, but we struggled.  “In a game against them, when you have that opportunity after 1-0 to get more of an advantage, you need to take it. We didn't.” The north London club have registered just one clean sheet at home in their last eight matches, and the Spaniard insists it’s something they must improve. “We can improve. We must improve that balance defensively. Above all, we deserved more. The key was to have more clear chances to score the second goal and get the result for us. Last week at home, we were also winning 2-0 and in two different situations, we conceded two goals. The key at the moment is not the goals we concede, it's the difference between our goals and the opposition's goals.”
