Wenger Takes Blame For ‘Worst’ Defeat

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger accepted responsibility for his side’s 6-0 thrashing by Chelsea on Saturday and described it as “one of the worst days” of his career.
The 64-year-old Frenchman was celebrating his 1000th game as Arsenal manager, but he will remember the Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge for all the wrong reasons.
Goals from Samuel Eto’o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard and Oscar put Chelsea 4-0 up by halftime, with further strikes by Oscar and Mohamed Salah compounding the visitors’ misery.
Arsenal also had Kieran Gibbs mistakenly sent off in the first half, after teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had conceded a penalty for handball, with Hazard scoring Chelsea’s third goal from the spot.
Wenger’s side finished the day seven points adrift of Chelsea in the title race, albeit with a game in hand, and he said that he was prepared to take the blame.
“This defeat is my fault. I take full responsibility for it”, Wenger said.
