At full-time Wenger shook Avram Grant's hand and disappeared straight down the tunnel. However, afterwards he made a point of mentioning Chelsea's "long ball" tactics.
"We got caught when Anelka came on and by the long balls and the physical battle. We have to be stronger defensively because we were suddenly vulnerable on the long balls. It was in our hands but we needed more defensive authority. We were not serene enough defensively. I don't want to single anyone out. As a unit we need to show more authority."
