Wenger urges quick response

Cape Town - Arsène Wenger says his team must respond from their north London derby disappointment at the first possible opportunity.

Arsenal host Leicester City on Tuesday evening, just three days after suffering a 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane.

 Wenger’s side had won five matches in succession before losing at the weekend, and the manager is hoping his players can return to winning ways.

“It’s not the first time we lose a game, but how we bounce back is to take the information from what we got today, and respond very quickly on Tuesday,” he told arsenal.com.

“It’s disappointing because we did fight hard together, but we made too many technical mistakes.

“We lost too many balls in situations where we could have put Tottenham in trouble. What is funny is that every time we arrived in their final third we looked like we could score a goal. But we didn’t do it enough.

 “Yes, of course, it is dangerous [to draw conclusions from a derby]. But as well the fact is that we lost a game, and we cannot deny that.

“But overall, there’s a long way to go, so I believe that just keep going and recover, show quickly a strong response on Tuesday, and then we see where we stand after that.”
