Wenger eyeing strong return performance from Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was disappointed with his side after their 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town in the Carling Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday night.

Tamas Priskin netted the only goal of the match with a neat finish in the 78th minute to put one foot into the final of the competition but the Gunners boss is targeting a much better showing when his side hosts the Championship outfit in a fortnight.

"We didn't create many chances," said Wenger. "Ipswich defended very well and we were caught out.

"We had no spark, Ipswich were sharper than us and we made a defensive mistake which they took advantage of.

"But we're at home in the second leg and that could make all the difference."
