Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger accepts his side cannot afford many more "average" performances like against Chelsea if they are to have a say in the Premier League title race

The Gunners went into Saturday’s showdown with the leaders at the Emirates Stadium unbeaten, and holding some genuine hope of making a real impact again at the business end of the table.

Goals from Fernando Torres and Juan Mata’s free-kick secured a 2-1 victory for the visitors, while Gervinho was on target for the Gunners.

Wenger said: “We can be much better. Technically we were average, and also so was our authority at the back. I think there is some psychological damage because we lost the game.”
