Arsène Wenger says he will look for internal solutions to get his side back on track before considering his January transfer targets.

Arsenal slipped to their second home defeat of the season on Saturday against Swansea, and now lie 10th in the Premier League table.

Wenger admits he is concerned about his team’s form at Emirates Stadium, but says it is important to stick together if they are to build momentum.

“We have a lot of important games until January,” the manager said. “We’ll decide [on targets] in January but at the moment, we have to find solutions before then.

“At the moment there is uncertainty among the fans, they do not have complete confidence that we will win the game but does it have an influence on our performances? I don't know.

“I feel we have to look at the solution from inside, and don't expect too much from outside.”

Despite his disappointment at the Swansea result, Wenger insists it is not time to hit the panic button.

“You can see with the results, it’s difficult for everybody at the moment,” he said. “All the teams, even those who invested a lot of money, it’s difficult for everybody.

“You have to keep the focus, the desire and the ambition, and turn it on. That’s how it works in the season. You cannot always jump to definitive conclusions from one game.”
