Video: Arsenal 0-2 Barcelona - Arsene Wenger admits 'Barca are better than us'


Arsene Wenger criticised his "guilty" Arsenal team for repeating past mistakes in their 2-0 home Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

The impressive Lionel Messi finished a fine counter-attack started by Neymar and Luis Suarez to give Barcelona the lead in the 71st minute before, in the 83rd, winning and scoring the penalty that leaves Arsenal on the brink of elimination.

A combination of wasted goalscoring chances and defensive lapses felt familiar to those which ended Arsenal's Champions League campaign at the same stage last season against Monaco, when - despite moments of promise - Wenger's team again struggled, and the Frenchman revealed his disappointment that they again performed similarly.
