Wenger has no complaints as Arsenal fall at Sunderland

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had no complaints after their defeat at Sunderland.

The Gunners were undone by Darren Bent's scrambled goal from a corner.

Defeat left the Gunners eight points adrift of Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea, and manager Wenger admitted they had only themselves to blame.

He said: "We lost a game and we can only fault ourselves because we didn't score.

"Some players were not at their best and we gave a goal away on the only situation where Sunderland could score one today, a set-piece, and that sums it up well.

"Rather than focusing on any individual, I believe it's more down to the fact that we made a big mistake on the corner, because the game was there for the taking in the last 20 minutes.

"But of course, 1-0 down makes it more difficult."
