- Arsene Wenger would have killed himself if Davide Zappacosta had scored a late winner against his side
- The Italian sent an effort crashing off the post in the closing satges of his side's 2 - 2 draw with Arsenal
- The draw at the Emirates stadium leaves Arsenal rooted in sixth place in the Premier League
Arsene Wenger has joked that he would have killed himself had Davide Zappacosta's late shot hit the back of the net and secured three points for Chelsea on Wednesday, January 3.
Arsenal and Chelsea played a 2 - 2 draw at the Emirates and the Blues almost scored late on through the wing-back but luckily for the gunners his effort could only hit the post.
The visitors hit back after Jack Wilshere's first Premier League strike in over two years with goals via Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso, before Hector Bellerin restored parity late on.
"I would have committed suic*de," Wenger told reporters after the final whistle when asked what he would have done if that effort went in.
"It was a great football game, we have shown great mental resources, I knew the last 20 minutes would be tough."
Wenger believes his side need more luck to win games as they have dominated most of their matches but failed to find the goals.
"It’s very frustrating. We have to look at ourselves as well," he added.
"Our performances have been top quality but we have not had the results we could have had. We have not been gifted luck."
The draw leaves Arsenal rooted in sixth place in the Premier League, outside the Champions League standings.
