The manager made the remark after sharing the points with Antonio Conte’s men in an extremely exciting finale to proceedings at the Emirates
Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger controversially claimed that he would have killed himself had Davide Zappacosta’s late shot sealed three points for Chelsea on Wednesday.
There was one more twist in the tale, however, when Zappacosta crashed a long-range shot against the bar.
“I would have committed suicide,” Wenger told reporters after the final whistle when asked what he would have done if that effort went in.
“It was a great football game, we have shown great mental resources, I knew the last 20 minutes would be tough.”
The draw leaves Arsenal rooted in sixth place in the Premier League, outside the Champions League standings.
But while Wenger is annoyed to see his side down the table, he believes that the Gunners’ play merits better fortunes.
“It’s very frustrating. We have to look at ourselves as well,” he added.
“Our performances have been top quality but we have not had the results we could have had. We have not been gifted luck.”
The manager singled out goalscorer Wilshere for praise after opening the scoring with a fine finish.
“He’s at the level now that not many people expected him to be. He has not played for England since 2016, that means everyone gave up on him,” he said
