Arsène Wenger says it is important not to overreact when Arsenal lose matches.

Wenger’s side suffered their first defeat in 12 matches when they were beaten 3-1 by Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium on the opening day of the season.

Arsenal have rallied since that setback to win at Fenerbahce and Fulham in the space of three days.

I'm about doing the things well for the club I love so I'm happy that we are back on track

Arsène Wenger

“I feel relieved,” Wenger said after the victory at Craven Cottage. “Somebody told me yesterday that I've made 956 games for Arsenal. That means I care about what's happening at this Club.

“When we had the result last week, I was of course deeply disappointed. I'm not on a personal trip anymore. I'm about doing the things well for the club I love so I'm happy that we are back on track, that's all.

“Look we lost one game since the beginning of March. That's why I think it was a shock. Of course the defeat was a shock because it's the first game of the season. But still, we've lost one game since the beginning of March. We won in the Champions League away at Bayern. We won 3-0 at Fenerbahce.

“Being responsible in life is to do things that you think are right, it's not to react to what people say.

“I've always felt that that is most important. If you always listen to what people say, you go five minutes one way and 10 minutes later you go the other way. It is like that.

“When you have responsibilities, you have just to focus on making the right decisions and if they are not right, to say 'Sorry, I'm wrong' and when we lose a game, I'm wrong.”
