Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has admitted after the goalless draw against Hull City in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday that the Gunners didn’t do enough to win the game.
The Gunners had over 20 shots with more than nine of those on target but couldn’t get a single goal. The goalkeeping heroics of Hull City’s Eldin Jakupovic denied Wenger’s men on several occasions but Flamini feels the team could have won if they had done more than they did on Saturday.
Although, the midfielder agreed that his side created numerous chances but he believes all that doesn’t matter if they aren’t converting those chances.
The veteran midfielder also pointed out that it is becoming very regular to see the Gunners keep the ball and yet don’t make anything out of it.
He referred to the game against Leicester City where the Gunners scored their first goal midway into the second half despite creating numerous chances before then.
He said: “It was a very, very frustrating game. We had the opportunity a few times to close the game and win it.
Unfortunately we didn’t so I think frustration is the main word of the game today.
“We were a bit lucky last weekend to score in the last seconds of the game against Leicester City, but it didn’t happen today.
“We had many opportunities and chances and this is not the first game that has been like that. Even against Southampton and Leicester it was like that and today we had plenty of opportunities. If you don’t finish it, it is not enough. Now we have to play away and win that game.”
Arsenal will return to European football and will lock horns with Barcelona Tuesday night at the Emirates Stadium.
