Hughes Pleased With Performance
Blackburn Rover manager Mark Hughes felt that Rover acquitted themselves well against Arsenal, so he was pleased despite Monday Evenings 2-0 defeat.
Arsenal were put under some pressure by Rovers, but we never really threatened them too much and an early goal from Phillipe Senderos, then a late one from Emmanuel Adebayor saw Arsenal to a 2-0 triumph, nevertheless Hughes was content.
Hughes told BBC Sport: "I was really pleased with how we went about our job.
"Not many teams can come to the Emirates and take Arsenal on in a passing game and we certainly did that.
"I certainly don't think we deserved a two-goal difference.
"We tried to ask questions of a very good side and, on another night, one of the number of opportunities we created in that first half might have been converted."
