Granit Xhaka has called on his teammates to forget about last weekend’s defeat at Liverpool and focus on their upcoming games.
The Swiss midfielder was heavily criticised for his role in the 4-0 defeat after making an error for the third successive game that led to a goal.
While the woeful display will be hard to very hard to forget for many Arsenal fans, the Gunners will be expected to get back to winning ways when they play Bournemouth and FC Koln after the international break.
In order to climb the Premier League table, the 24-year-old has said that the team must drastically improve their form following two successive defeats in the league.
“The start against Chelsea [in the Community Shield] was good and against Leicester it was a crazy game,” Xhaka told Swiss newspaper Blick.
“We were not happy to lose against Stoke but we were clearly the better team.
“And yes, the Liverpool game – we have to make some critical assessments but also try to forget it as soon as possible.
“There was nothing good in it and we know that it was a bitter defeat.
“It has not been a start we wanted but there are 35 games ahead of us.”
