Arsenal bouncing back - Wenger

After a confidence blowing draw with Blackburn on the weekend, Arsene Wenger is rallying the Arsenal squad to prove they are good enough to win the title as they prepare to face Blackpool.

Arsenal will be feeling low after the draw, particularly with Manchester United winning against West Ham to increase their lead and title charge. But with only seven points between the Gunners and United, and a game in hand for Arsenal as well as the possibility of beating United when they face off in May, Arsenal could well close the gap to just one point.

"Now we want to focus on our next game and show we are good enough,” Wenger told the official Arsenal website.


Wenger points to problems in pace, rather than players attitudes, as the reason for Arsenal’s disappointing draw.

“I don't think the players did not want it against Blackburn, we were just one-paced and that is not our game.

“We had nothing in the tank to produce a change of pace. We looked very predictable and usually we are not.


With a week now to get Robin van Persie, Abou Diaby, Cesc Fabregas and Alex Song back into form after the big four returned from injuries on the weekend, Wenger believes that Arsenal will be back to their attacking, fast paced selves when they face Blackpool next Sunday.

"We have the players available for the whole week and what is important is we work on our basics and come back to what we are strong at,” the Arsenal manager said.

"You get your belief through your attitude and, of course, we have been shocked by what has happened.

“That is why we have to put even more effort in.”
