Arsene Wenger wants his young Arsenal side to focus on the challenges ahead over the final six weeks of the season rather than reflecting on what might have been.

The Gunners, already without several key defenders, will travel to Liverpool for Tuesday's game missing Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who has a slight hamstring problem, while leading scorer Robin van Persie is absent with a groin strain..

Liverpool could go two points clear of Manchester United at the top of the table if they win and Wenger said: "We have to accept what happened on Saturday (in the 2-1 FA Cup defeat), to deal with it and not repeat it."

He added: "We have many big games coming up and we feel we can win them.

"Winning is what we live for. We cannot be happy with only trying to remain fourth.

"We want to get closer to the top and have a good opportunity to come back to six points (deficit) on Liverpool.

"Third place is important, second place is important and why not first? You never know.

"You do not want to have regrets. We want to win every single game, no matter what competition we play in.

"Of course we are disappointed having lost in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, but we want to bounce back quickly.

"We have so many important targets in front of us and want to focus on that."
