Arsène Wenger is confident that his side will respond to their Capital One Cup exit by beating Liverpool at the weekend.

Arsenal lost their second home game in succession on Tuesday night when goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Juan Mata earned Chelsea a 2-0 victory at Emirates Stadium.

Liverpool are the next visitors in a late kick-off on Saturday and Wenger is optimistic.

The home form is a concern but not as big as the statistics show it

"We will respond against Liverpool, don't worry," he told Arsenal Player.

"The home form is a concern but not as big as the statistics show it, because I felt in big games against Dortmund and [Chelsea] we gave easy goals away.

"There are positives and negatives, the negatives are we give the goals away, the positives are that we don't give many chances away. So we have to keep doing that and focus on the next game.

"It was a disappointing [result against Chelsea] because we put a lot of effort in and played at a high pace and put ourselves on the back foot. Then of course you have to take a big risk always and be a bit open on the counter-attack, and in the end we got punished.

"The first goal was a turning point because it was a corner for us and then a goal for them. Overall we have to learn from that and get back into the next game without losing our drive going forward but be a bit more composed in our final third."
