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.”
