Arsene Wenger: “ManCity players wanted to prepare a gift for Pellegrini in his last home game”

The head coach Arsene Wenger has told about the Premier League’s match against the Citizens (2:2).

“I was surprised how quickly the City rushed to attack as the game started. We expected something similar, but they began a match very powerful. But we managed to cope with this pressure, and the squad has shown its strong character.
players wanted to prepare a gift for Pellegrini in his last home game, they were very good. At the score 1:1 we didn’t seem to score again. But after the second missed goal we have shown desire to struggle and again began to create some dangerous moments. We didn’t want to lose.

At the score 2:1 I wanted to let out Cazorla, but after the Sanchez’s goal we made up our mind to keep the score because the rival had a lot of attacking players in the field.
Now we should finish our work in a match against Aston Villa – we want to finish the season with a home victory.
Welbeck has something with a meniscus. He is not the one who will ask for replacement without any reason. I am concerned, I won’t give the forecast about his participation in Euro – it is necessary to be optimistic anyway”, – Wenger said.
