Hmm: Here's What Wenger Said About Arsenal's 4-2 Defeat to lower league opposition, Nottingham Forest

Arsenal were on Sunday knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side Nottingham Forest, losing by 4-2.

Speaking after the game, Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger said:
"We played a very good Forest team who were sharp and focused. The challenges were decisive. Overall our performance wasn't good enough.

"We have many players on the edge and we play again on Wednesday. When you don't win the selection is always questioned. I believe we had an experienced team - eight or nine internationals. It would be easy to think that was the problem.

"When you're against a team like that they're very difficult to beat. Defensively you cannot afford the mistakes we made."

Wenger's view on the second penalty, which may have taken a double touch :"I didn't see it. I've said what I have to say [on referees] I don't need to say any more."

On being banned from the touchline: "It was very frustrating and unfortunately it was a case on top of that of seeing the team lose.
