Arsene Wenger has urged his team to put the United loss behind them and focus on upcoming games, according to the club’s official website.
The Gunners who suffered a 3-2 defeat in the hands of Manchester United remained third position, albeit five points behind table toppers Leicester City, with 11 games left to be played.
While Wenger was disappointed with the outcome of Sunday’s match, the French man has urged his team to show they are up to the fight when they host Swansea City on Wednesday.
He told Arsenal player: “We have to show that we are at the level of this fight.”
“Things can change quickly. We need to bounce back quickly on Wednesday night.
“We put ourselves on a bad foot by giving two goals away on crosses. After that, it became difficult.
“But we gave a lot. We came back to 2-1 but then gave them the third goal. It was a difficult game for us but I cannot fault our commitment, our energy.
“Unfortunately, at the moment, in the final third we didn’t create enough and they defended well.
“They defended well and made many fouls in the middle of the park that stopped our flow. I think that’s a little problem in the modern game.”
Wenger’s men will host Swansea City on Wednesday before facing Tottenham in a north London Derby next weekend which will be a very crucial game in the title race.
