Wenger keen to forget 8-2 defeat

Arsene Wenger is not dwelling on the memory of the last time he took his Arsenal team to Old Trafford.

Wenger faces Manchester United at lunchtime today and said that there was no real meaning behind what he believes is a defeat with little consequence.

"There is an emotional aspect in a defeat like that, but the football aspect, as a manager, has no real meaning," Wenger said.

"There is no mathematical consequence. We lost a game, that is all. It was easy to explain. We gave everything in Udinese in 35C heat at night and I knew that we would be dead. We lost vital defensive players in that game and we went out very exposed."
