Wenger: Arsenal couldn’t afford to lose against Tottenham

Arsene Wenger has claimed Arsenal wasted their opportunities to inflict defeat on Tottenham as he admitted the north London derby was a game the Gunners ‘could not afford to lose’. Wenger’s side are now languishing in sixth place, seven points behind Spurs, after Harry Kane’s second half header ensured a 1-0 defeat at Wembley, leaving Arsenal’s top four dreams in tatters with 11 league games remaining.
