Arsene Wenger pointed to fatigue as the key factor in Arsenal’s 0-0 Premier League draw with Sunderland.

Wenger’s men were left frustrated as Sunderland held on in the face of consistent pressure from Arsenal to ensure their Premier League survival.

The result still effectively seals third place and an automatic spot in the UEFA Champions League for Arsenal because of their superior goal difference over Manchester United.

Wenger told Sky Sports: “We couldn’t score and Sunderland defended well which is understandable because they knew they could be safe tonight. We tried and tried.

“We gave a lot on Sunday [against United] to come back and you could see that the legs were not completely there tonight. At least we didn’t concede and we got an important point.

“We have some time to prepare and recover for the FA Cup final and I think we will do that.”

Asked about Jack Wilshere’s performance in his first start since November because of ankle problems, Wenger added: “Jack Wilshere gave a lot, he did alright. He had some good movement. But we are all frustrated because we didn’t score.”

That’s a lame excuse on Wenger’s part. He has the squad to rotate in such situations, but he does not do that. Arsenal could have started with Rosicky and Walcott tonight in place of Ramsey and Ozil, maybe even Giroud. But Wenger insists on the same players and does not really believe in players he has on the bench. Its a shame that Arsenal cannot win games like this. That is one of the reason of them not winning the title, and the reason is quite lame. INEXCUSABLE !!!

Wenger should go for a world class striker who should break into much defensive clubs including Chelsea to compete for the silverware and the Champions league title We need atleaat two more strong injection into the club to strengthen the squad
