Arsene Wenger makes transfer statement following Arsenal's defeat at Stoke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger slammed his makeshift defence for being "too sluggish" after the Gunners' 1-0 loss to Stoke on Saturday, as Jese Rodriguez netted the victor on his debut.

"It's a hard defeat to swallow", Wenger said. We had chances - we should have won the game comfortably.

"I think we are at a point where people can not take liberties with what we are doing".

Wenger was unhappy with the decision after the match, insisting it was "very easy" to see Lacazette was in fact onside.

Lacazette had the ball in the net with a sharp finish from inside the penalty area but despite appearing to be level, the assistant adjudged that the Frenchman was offside.

And those thin margins are what cost title contenders their season-ending goals.

Arsene Wenger: "I don't believe in bogey teams too much".

Arsenal had 77 percent possession, but allowed Jese Rodriguez to score on one of the few times the Potters had the ball.

"If you look at the players we let go I would argue that we have only let go of one who would be a regular starter".

"It was a very frustrating evening". Defensively there is no excuse.

"To lose a game like that is disappointing You don't want to lose games that you should win".

Leicester have already signed Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City, for a reported £25 million fee, but with Riyad Mahrez's future still in the balance, The Foxes may well trigger Bojan's release clause as they continue to seek goals throughout the new season. "He is an elite player, a top-level player and you don't get too many opportunities to bring players like him to the club, so when you do you should enjoy it".

The loss means Arsenal have three points from their opening two games, with another tough away game coming up next at Liverpool.
