Arsène Wenger will seek solace in his team's Premier League consistency when Arsenal resume their quest for silverware this weekend.
A difficult fortnight for the Club started with the Carling Cup Final defeat to Birmingham, continued with a Champions League exit at Barcelona and culminated in last weekend's FA Cup elimination at Manchester United.
Wenger, his players and the fans were at a low ebb after that Old Trafford defeat but Arsenal remain in serious contention for arguably the biggest prize of all - the title. The Gunners are unbeaten in 11 top-flight games and that's a comforting stat for their manager ahead of Saturday's trip to West Brom.
"In fairness, we have not had many off days [in the Premier League]," said Wenger.
"If you look at what this team has given in the last three months, the players do not get the recognition of the effort they put in. People forget quickly the quality of the performances we have put in, but we are on a remarkably consistent run in the Premier League.
"We have gone out in the Champions League and only just in special circumstances. At Old Trafford, we could have got a result, but were still a bit affected by Barcelona. We cannot say we have not produced a performance [in that game].
"Now we just want to keep our belief high, togetherness high and give our best shot until the end of the season."Copyright 2017 The Arsenal Football Club plc. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.arsenal.com as the source
