However, the Frenchman again refused to accept it is inevitable that his 22-year stay as boss is coming to a sad end.
“I am confident that nothing is permanent in life,” added Wenger. “It is down to how you respond and the focus and effort you show to turn things around.”
Sub-zero temperatures and the apathy caused by Arsenal’s display at Wembley on Sunday saw thousands of seats go unoccupied at the Emirates. The lines around the pitch were painted blue ahead of kick-off in case an expected snow shower covered the field.
Unfortunately for the home fans that did brave the cold, that was the only novelty on a night of familiar failings from Wenger’s men, who have now lost seven times in 12 games this year.
“Do you want the fans to be happy when you are 3-0 down? I am surprised you are surprised,” continued Wenger.
“It was combination of the weather conditions and the fact we had a big disappointment on Sunday.”
