Arsenal, Arsene Wenger shouldn't panic after dour Middlesbrough draw

Arsene Wenger was frustrated with Arsenal's lacklustre showing in their scoreless draw.

One thing that hasn't changed in Arsene Wenger's 20 years in charge of Arsenal is his penchant for a profound quote. He arrived in north London with a reputation as a professor, but he has been a philosopher too, ruminating on life, love and football in a way no other manager can.

There was one such quote last week. Speaking ahead of his 67th birthday, which fell on Saturday, Wenger said in his news conference: "I've always said that if one day I go up to heaven and God asks, 'Do you want to come...

Arsene Wenger was frustrated with Arsenal's lacklustre showing in their scoreless draw.

Arsenal failed to make it a happy 67th birthday for Arsene Wenger as they dropped two points against Middlesbrough. After his side dispatched Ludogorets 6-0 in midweek, Wenger must have been optimistic of continuing the Gunners' run of seven consecutive wins. Unfortunately, they were not able to break down resilient opponents in an uninspiring performance.
