London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called on his team to introspect after the 1-2 loss to Everton in an English Premier League (EPL) match.
Tuesday's loss at the Goodison Park Stadium stopped an unbeaten run of 15 matches for Arsenal. The former EPL champions have lost only two of the 16 matches so far and occupy the second spot on the league table with 34 points, three behind leaders Chelsea.

“I think we have to look at ourselves. We lost the game because I feel we started well and after that maybe we lost a bit of urgency because we were too comfortable and then Everton made it very physical,” Wenger said.
“Overall, I believe that from then on it disturbed our game and we created less flow going forward. Unfortunately we didn't take our chances or two. We didn't create too many but we had clear chances in the game that we didn't take,” the French coach added.
