Arsène Wenger spoke after the game and clearly thought his team deserved to make history on Tuesday night. Arsenal had scored two goals but needed a third to seal passage through to the last 8. Arsène frustrated at missed chances and a big refereeing call said:

Monaco had no shot on target at all, we played in one half and they defended well, until the end I think it was a very tight game."

The reporter then asked the Arsenal boss if he agreed with Per Mertesacker's view that the better team went through and he said:

"I don't let the disappointment talk too much. If you look at the shots on target Monaco had over the two games, I think the team who made the least mistakes defensively went through"

Those first leg mistakes will more than likely be replayed in the manager and players heads today, let's hope lessons are now well and truly learnt because the performance in France shows that it should have been us progressing to the next round.
