Laurent Koscielny says Arsenal need get back to basics if they are to regain confidence and return to form.

The Gunners have been eliminated from the FA Cup and the Champions League this week, and face a vital trip to Everton on Saturday.

We need to get back to this and when the results come back, we will be stronger

Koscielny says the team must work harder if they are to maintain their Premier League title bid.

“We are frustrated because the most important thing in a game is to finish with three points, which we have not done [much],” he told Arsenal Player. “We haven’t been fighting like we did in the last six months because we lost a little confidence in ourselves and it is harder to win some games.

“We need to come back and help our team-mates with defending, attacking and a controlled passing movement. We didn’t lose our capacity physically or our technique, we just need to do more.

“We also need to come back to our basics, be simple and then the confidence will come back.

"When we get a win, it will be better and after we can play with more confidence, movement and try things we didn’t do before. We need to get back to this and when the results come back, we will be stronger.”
