Arsene Wenger on our poor home record and his private life allegations

Four wins, zero draws and two defeats. Arsenal’s home record this season is far from convincing in the English Premier League and manager Arsene Wenger is fully aware of the problem.
Speaking after yesterday’s 0-1 defeat against Newcastle, the Frenchman believes players coming from injury and the Champions League game in mid-week were reasons for yesterday’s disappointing performance as he added how his players lacked something during the game.
The Gunners – who also lost to West Bromwich Albion at home – also struggled to battle their way past Birmingham and West Ham with Wenger labeling their home record as a concern.
The Frenchman concluded by showing his disgust at how he was treated for the last 14 years in England by the media, saying how he will not answer questions on his private life.
After Newcastle, he said:
Some players are coming back from injury, some players played midweek and we were 1-0 down.
What is a concern is that we dropped three points today and we knew that on set pieces we couldn’t afford this kind of mistake, but overall you are always concerned when you don’t win.
We lacked something, but the Premiership is very tight and you need to be focused for every single minute until the last second of every half.
Home form is a concern because against Birmingham and West Ham they were struggling wins.
Everybody comes here and plays very tight. When you score the first goal it is all right because teams have to come out, but as long as they can sit deep we have a problem to play through when we are not on full power.
I arrived 14 years ago and you know what happened and I promised myself I would never comment any more, because for 14 years I have been insulted everywhere in England, and never with any truth.
I promised myself I would never speak about my private life any more.
