Arsene Wenger
 
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has explained why his side lost 2-1 to Newscastle United at St James Park on Sunday in the Premier League.
 
Wenger said the Gunners lacked the tempo to beat Newcastle on Sunday afternoon as a result of stress from their Europa League outings.
 
 
Wenger’s men played out a 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow in mid-week to qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa League.
 
The Frenchman believes a return trip to Moscow cost them the defeat at St James’ Park.
 
Wenger told Sky Sports: “It is a little bit of the story of the season away from home, we went 1-0 up, we don’t put the game to bed and we made mistakes defensively.

“But I felt overall today the fact we played on Thursday night, in the second half we couldn’t raise the tempo and keep it up in the first half.
.

“That is what happened many times this season, that’s all we can say today. It’s baffling how we lost this game today because from those chances we lose 2-1. On the other hand, the result is there.”
