Arsene Wenger was stroppy with reporters over their failure to sign a striker in January

Having added only midfielder Mohamed Elneny to his ranks in the January transfer window, Wenger was again forced to defend his decision not to bring in any firepower.

“If you knew a world-class striker who could have strengthened our team, you should have told me before the transfer deadline was over,” said Wnger.

“They do not walk in the street and say ‘please, here is a world-class striker, can you take me?’ They are all at big clubs and are under contract. There were none available. If tonight we think a miracle man could have scored the goal for us, I think its better we think how can we score the goals with the players we have. We can score goals, we have shown that before,” he added.
