Arsenal boss Wenger: Arshavin did not deserve Man Utd criticism

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was disappointed with the criticism aimed at Andrey Arshavin after defeat to Manchester United.

Arshavin was criticised after the game but Wenger believes that the Russian playmaker performed well.

"We had the first chances in the game, three big ones before they scored," Wenger told arsenal.com. "Because we didn't score, you can't say Arshavin took the best option.

"But Arshavin did well on Sunday, he was dangerous and he fought. People are too hard with him."
