Manager Arsene Wenger has challenged his battle-weary Arsenal squad to look within themselves and provide a response at Reading on Monday night.
The Gunners head to Madejski Stadium in need of a confidence boost following the shock penalty shoot-out defeat at npower League Two Bradford. However, yesterday's results mean Arsenal are three points off the top four of the Barclays Premier League, albeit without Tottenham and West Brom having played.
"There has been disappointment and frustration [this week], but that is normal when you go out in a competition like that," Wenger said. "However, having said that, we can only look at ourselves, get on with it and look for the future."
