We just came out of two convincing results at Bayern Munich and at Tottenham with a very solid defensive performance, so you have to think that [Chelsea defeat] was an accident.
How do you deal with the accident? You repair them, you repair the damage and you go for the next one.
An accident has happened - that doesn't mean that you are not a good driver. It just means that we have played about 40 games this season and it is not what happened on Saturday that reflects the quality of this team.
We have 62 points that we earned hard with quality games and that is what we want to focus on - to get back to that quality.
The season is always decided by how well you finish, so at the most important moment of the season it is vital that we stick together.
– Arsene Wenger speaking to the Arsenal Media Channel
Nicklas Bendtner could face a club fine from Arsenal for an alleged drunken rant in Copenhagen earlier this week.
It's reported the striker threatened a taxi driver in the Danish capital on the night Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League to Bayern Munich. Manager Arsene Wenger is understood to be aware of what went on.
Bendtner has not played for Arsenal since the start of February 2. He spent spells on loan at Sunderland and Juventus in recent seasons and is poised to leave Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.
Arsene Wenger also revealed record signing Mesut Ozil, who had looked refreshed and scored in the 4-1 FA Cup quarter-final win over Everton on Saturday, could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines:
We have to make a scan tomorrow to see how bad it is but he's out for at least a few weeks. I hope it's not too bad.
Arsene Wenger blasted the actions of "very good diver" Arjen Robben after his side bowed out of the Champions League last night. Arsenal faced the task of having to overcome a 2-0 deficit from the first leg of their last-16 clash last month. The game against Bayern Munich ended 1-1.
Arsene Wenger said: "Robben is very good at getting the maximum of nothing and he is a great player and as well a very good diver, but it is part of it. He is a fantastic player, I would not deny that, he's one of the best players in the world.
"But he gets in front of a player and then he slows down and goes down. He gets the free-kicks. That's where we spoke about yesterday that the referee, if he gives him a yellow card on the first one when he goes down, he will not do it again."
Arsene Wenger added: "Bayern at the moment are the team of course who are full of confidence because they are doing well, but we have a great opportunity to do it. I am absolutely confident that mentally we will be ready to play at our best.
"The statistics are against us, but we have also won 5-1 at Inter Milan, we have won everywhere in Europe. If we are winning 1-0 for example, then it makes the (final) result absolutely possible, so that is what we try to do.
"We do not have to be nervous and impatient, just to focus on the performance of our game."
Arsene Wenger sees no reason why Arsenal cannot pull off another shock result when they look to upset Bayern Munich tonight. The Gunners are looking to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg of their Champions League clash.
Arsene Wenger insists his side, buoyed by their FA Cup quarter-final win over Everton, should be confident of a repeat performance from last season, when they produced a remarkable performance in Munich to win 2-0 and exit the competition only on away goals.
