EPL: Wenger reveals why Arsenal lost 2-1 to Newcastle United.
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has explained why his side lost 2-1 to Newscastle United at St James Park on Sunday in the Premier League.
Wenger said the Gunners lacked the tempo to beat Newcastle on Sunday afternoon as a result of stress from their Europa League outings.
Wenger’s men played out a 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow in mid-week to qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa League.
The Frenchman believes a return trip to Moscow cost them the defeat at St James’ Park.
