Alex Iwobi’s own-goal in the 77th minute meant the Gunners came away from the Emirates with a point, but the draw means they face a struggle to finish top of Group A.

The north London outfit have now drawn three matches and lost one in all competitions this month but Wenger emphatically denied the existence of any curse over the club.

On whether he will be glad when November is over, Wenger emphatically said: ‘No.’

‘I believe that I have to be careful about the choice of my words because when I say “stuttering” it comes back in the next press conference.

‘Look, I think there is a special spirit in the squad and the consistency of the results and we are unbeaten for 18 games.

‘Sometimes you go through a spell, when you have such a long momentum, where we win a bit less.

‘It’s down to us to continue without losing a game but as well to transform the draws now into wins. But there is no reason to panic.’
