  • Arsene Wenger wants to slim down his Arsenal squad before making any further additions. Some of the north London club's shortcomings, particularly defensively, were exposed as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Stoke in the Premier League on Saturday.Gunners manager Wenger has not ruled out more signings before the transfer window closes at the end of the month, but his immediate priority is to move out unwanted players. "I expect to sell players first," the Frenchman said. "We have too many players. It is not manageable. Many clubs are in this situation - that is why the transfer market is quiet. "We have 33 players at the moment. We have too many players."Regarding arrivals, Wenger said he could not get into "transfer mode" in the immediate aftermath of the loss at the bet365 Stadium.Arsenal outplayed Stoke for long spells and were aggrieved not to gain at least a point after a strong penalty appeal was rejected and a goal disallowed. They spurned a host of other chances.Hecto..

  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger complained his side had been denied a goal and a penalty by incorrect decisions from the match officials in the 1-0 loss at Stoke.Wenger claimed a 72nd-minute Alexandre Lacazette effort that was ruled out for offside should have stood "100 per cent".And he also protested that referee Andre Marriner was wrong not to have awarded a spot-kick in the first half when Hector Bellerin went down in the Stoke box under the attentions of Mame Diouf, with the Gunners boss adding: "We know we don't get penalties."Giving his thoughts after a game that was settled by a strike in the 47th minute from Potters debutant Jese Rodriguez, Wenger said: "I believe it is the kind of night where you are angry."That is because not only did we not score with the number of chances we had, we made stupid mistakes centrally for the goal, first by losing the ball and after by not defending properly."And on top of that as well I think we were unlucky with some decisions from th..
