Football: Wenger urges Arsenal to atone for 'accident' at Liverpool
LONDON (AFP) - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has described his side's 5-1 thrashing at Liverpool as an "accident" and encouraged his players to respond by beating champions Manchester United on Wednesday.
Arsenal lost their hold on first place in the Premier League after their demolition at Anfield on Saturday, but Wenger is confident that they will show their worth against United at the Emirates Stadium.
"It is always a disappointment to lose a game, but I think it was an accident because we have been very stable defensively and we have to treat it like that," the Frenchman told a press conference on Tuesday.
"We have just been on a 10-game unbeaten run. You cannot consider one game as the trend, the pattern of our season.
