Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was pleased with his side’s performance against Manchester City but believes they should have taken all three points.

The Gunners fell behind to a first-half header from Joleon Lescott before Laurent Koscielny struck an emphatic equaliser eight minutes from time to level the match at 1-1.

Wenger was pleased with how his side acquitted themselves but admitted he was disappointed not to come away with the win.

“It’s the minimum we deserved today,” he said.

“I am pleased with the quality of the performance and our spirit but a bit frustrated because I felt there was room to do more.

“We had early chances and very late chances.

“I’m thinking especially about Gervinho’s chance at the edge of the box where he missed the target.”

The draw means Arsenal remain unbeaten this season, and Wenger hopes the result can give them the confidence to build on their encouraging start to the campaign.

“Overall I hope the game will reinforce our belief and our confidence, and reassure us about our potential in this league.”
