Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger laments his side's late lapse in concentration against Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lamented the late goal that his side conceded against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Robert Lewandowski volleyed home in the 82nd minute to help the German team register a 2-1 victory over the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.

"It's difficult to take because I would agree that we were maybe not at our most fluent tonight going forward, but at that moment we were on top," the Frenchman told Sky Sports News.

"We lost the game because we maybe wanted so much to win it that we forgot that if you cannot win it, don't lose it. That's what is most annoying because we put a lot of effort in.

"We started hesitant. At the end of the day, we went 1-0 down and when you don't start well it is difficult to get back into the game. But we did well and in the second half we were on top of it. We just forgot to be cautious. We were not cautious enough and we paid for it."

Arsenal, Dortmund and Napoli are all on six points from three matches in Group E.
