Wenger: Title chances minimal

Tamir Cohen scored a late winner for the Trotters – a week after

they lost 5-0 to Stoke at Wembley – to all-but end their opponents’

title hopes. “It’s hard to lose a game like that,” Wenger said on

Sky Sports 1. “We gave everything. Our attitude was fantastic. We

were 1-0 down and had chances to win it. “We have to give as much

as we can until the last game, but of course the chances are

minimal now. “The players fought very hard and the players are

disappointed.” Wenger claimed the past week, in which his side also

let leads slip to draw with Liverpool and Tottenham, had cost them

dear. But he said he does not see any need for drastic changes. “I

feel this week we could have taken nine points and we have taken

two,” he added. “We do not have to change our way of playing. “I

feel we have to be more mature in some situations when we are

looking too frail. “If you look at the way we dropped points it

makes it even more frustrating.” Striker Daniel Sturridge claimed

Bolton owed their fans victory over Arsenal following their FA Cup

semi-final humiliation. “We’re just delighted to come out here and

work hard,” said Sturridge, who is on loan from Chelsea. “After

last week’s result we wanted to come here and show the fans we had

the passion. “A lot of fans were very unhappy with last week, we

did this for the fans today.” Cohen took his shirt off after

scoring the winner to reveal a t-shirt paying tribute to his late

father, Avi, who died in December last year following a motorbike

accident. “I came on to protect the 1-1,” he said. “I am very happy

to score this goal, it’s been a very emotional season for me. “I am

happy we won and collected another three points.” Bolton boss Owen

Coyle was delighted with his side’s response to their Wembley

humiliation. “The boys have been magnificent all season,” he said.

“We had one terrible, horrible day last week when everything that

could go wrong went wrong. “We didn’t feel great about ourselves

and that will stay with me till the day I die, but today I think

everybody has seen the true Bolton. “Every one of them worked their

socks off. “I’m absolutely delighted to get the late winner.”
