Dejected Wenger rues 'worst possible' goal from Griezmann

Dejected Wenger rues 'worst possible' goal from Griezmann

"If I'm going to continue at Atletico, I don't know, we'll see", he told COPE after helping his side to a 1-1 draw at Arsenal in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.

Nevertheless, Wenger is refusing to be daunted by the task awaiting his team next week.

Arsenal led going in to the last 10 minutes against a side who had played with 10 men from the 10th minute.

After announcing he will step down as Arsenal boss at the end of the campaign, this was Wenger's final European home game at the helm.

But the Spaniards' usual pragmatism deserted them as they self-combusted in the opening 13 minutes. Griezmann's 82nd-minute equalizer follows some clumsy defending from Laurent Koscielny was certainly against the run of play but was reward for the team's stout defending in the aftermath of Sime Vrsaljko early sending off.

Bengal panchayat elections to be held in single phase on 14 May
The state government had earlier sent a proposal to the SEC suggesting that the election be held on a single day. In the petition, the parties had also demanded court monitoring of the electoral process.

But the 35-year-old Frenchman judged the challenge rather than the occasion and showed Vrsaljko a justified second yellow.

Atletico coach Simeone was outraged and two minutes later he was sent off from the dugouts, after screaming at referee Clement Turpin for not booking Hector Bellerin. The Argentine was dispatched to the stands after aiming a stream of invective at the official.

With only three minutes to full time, Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey met an outstanding cross with a bullet header but Jan Oblak's brilliant save denied the Gunners a second goal of the evening.

Atletico assistant German Burgos assumed managerial duties in his absence.

The tightest defence in La Liga - with only 18 goals conceded in 34 games - was finally undone as Wilshere dug out a cross and Lacazette hung above Lucas Hernandez to score his 16th of the season.

The France worldwide was played onside by dawdling Nacho Monreal before he hustled Koscielny into a swiped, unsuccessful clearance and applied the finish to spark delirium in the away section.

Alexandre Lacazette and Danny Welbeck both spurned chances to put Arsenal ahead before the break but the former made it seven goals in his past seven matches across all competitions with an expertly directed header from Jack Wilshere's 61st-minute cross. Atletico have reached the Champions League final twice in the last four years and won the Europa League in 2010 and 2012.

It will require one of Arsenal's great European displays to take him to a third.

It would be folly for Arsenal not to think Atleti will be better prepared with or without their manager on the touchlines for the return visit to the Wanda Metropolitano next Thursday.
