Arsene Wenger: Let's recover and respond quickly.

Arsene Wenger says his side must respond and recover from their north London derby defeat at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

After the 2-1 defeat to local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, the Gunners host Leicester City on Tuesday evening.

They had won five games on the bounce before losing to Spurs, and the Arsenal manager hopes his men can get back to winning ways with a win over the Foxes.

“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 said as the club's official website quoted.

“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.”
