Frimpong looks to the positives


Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is keen for the club to take the positives from their defeat to Olympiakos.

The Gunners colluded their group stage campaign with defeat to the Greek Champions but could celebrate Yossi Benayoun notching his first goal for the club in European competition.

And according to Frimpong, the israeli's goal isn't the only plus point for the youngster to take back to north London.

“It was a great atmosphere and it was lovely to be involved,” he said.

“If the likes of me, Francis [Coquelin] and Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain] can show we can play here, we can plan anywhere. I know we lost the game but we have to take positives from it.

“People that haven't been getting a lot of games this season have been getting them.

“It was a tough game,” he added. “To be fair to Olympiakos I thought they played really well.

“We started off a bit slow, got into the game a bit but it was a bit too late before the half ended.

"We showed great character to get a goal back and it's a shame we conceded in the last minute.
