    Anna: 30 points the gap between Arsenal and Man City says it all

    More from Arsene Wenger: “We want to focus on the next game and continue the effort we put in tonight. We’ve played twice against the best team in the country and it’s difficult for us, especially when it was not a good performance in the first game, but we have quality and want to show that.

    “I’m confident we can improve because we’ve done it before and I have confidence in the quality of the players.”

    More Arsene Wenger: “It was tough but that’s explainable by the fact of what happened on Sunday and the consequences of the hype about our performance. It hits you. The players put in a huge effort today but unfortunately we had some weak defending.

    “We focus on performances and when the pressure is on like this you have to show that strong organisation and unite, not divide. You have to stay together, focus and work even harder to get the confidence back.

    “You don’t expect fans to be euphoric after losing 3-0. We have to earn the fans by the quality of our performance. It has to come from us."

    Sean: Too harsh on Wenger. Look at all he has done for the club over the years. A perennial contender, alway top 5 (not this year, obvs), promoted a great style of play in a long-ball league. Owners need to give him more money to keep up with the Manchesters, Chelsea, etc

  8. 'It was soft defending from us'

    Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

    Arsenal

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Sky Sports: "I knew the first half would be difficult for us after Sunday. We needed at least to come in level at half-time but City took advantage of our lack of confidence. The team put a huge effort in but they’re going through a different period and their quality made it a difficult game for us.

    "The goals were preventable. I don’t think we can take away from the individual quality of the goals but it was soft defending on our side. After half-time we needed the penalty to go in to have a slight change to come back so that was a blow to us."

  10. Post update

    Arsenal

    Wenger, when asked by BBC Sport if Arsenal can compete with City: "It doesn't look like that for you at the moment, but we have to put things in perspective. The players have been through a lot of difficulties. We have to accept that City are above us. The difference in the league is no coincidence.

    On the crowd: "You cannot be euphoric after what happened on Sunday, and again tonight. The weather explains it as well."

  11. 'We layed with low confidence'

    Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

    Arsenal

    Arsene Wenger told BBC Sport: "I feel we put a lot of effort in tonight. We played with low confidence, you could see that at the start of the game and we paid for it.

    "We needed the penalty to go in, but that was anotehr negative. We lost to a team that is the best in the country at the moment."

    "We have to stay together," says Wenger.

    When asked if he thinks he can turn it around, his answer is "of course".

    Full quotes to come.

    Arsene Wenger is here. He's talking in hushed tones. He looks devastated.

    James McNair: There is no top 6 any longer. After tonight the gap is so wide that's there's a top 5 only. Arsenal now compete with the likes of Everton and Burnley.

    Gregory Mandapat: I think the Milan tie will determine Wenger's fate. A really poor showing against another struggling big team will turn whatever fans are left in the Wenger In camp. Based on current form, I don't like Arsenal's chances.

    Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

    To let you in to the secrets of the live text, I'm watching a TV feed from the Emirates. After the action is finished, it switches to the tunnel so I can hear what the managers say. As we wait for Wenger, I'm getting a cracking view of a grey carpet. Still no sign of Arsene...

    Ruby: I've defended Arsene Wenger rigorously for the last 10 years but now he has to go. Perhaps not sacked, but in a dignified manner, see out his contract and move upwards to the board. Sorry, but enough is enough.

  20. 'It's difficult after winning a trophy four days ago'

    Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

    Manchester City

    City boss Pep Guardiola on Sky Sports: "It’s so difficult to win two games in a row against a team like Arsenal, and we did it in tough conditions. The first five minutes and then the first 15-20 minutes of the second half we were not so good, but it was so important to win again and make another step forward. We want to be champions and every game we win we go nearer.

    "They were all nice goals and Ederson was outstanding, saving the penalty, because the game was not won. Arsenal can create chances from nothing in 10 or 15 minutes and the way we started the second half was not good but it’s difficult to stay focused after winning a trophy four days ago.

    "We created enough chances to score. I think it was three shots to score three. They arrived at the byline one or two times so Arsenal had chances but we did our job. That was important because we have tough fixtures coming up, Chelsea, Everton, United and Tottenahm. It was important to keep 16 points in front and the goal difference."
