Arsène Wenger has called for his players to "wake up and focus" ahead of next weekend's game against Manchester United.

The Arsenal manager saw his team slip to a second consecutive Premier League defeat on Sunday as Swansea City came from behind to win 3-2 at the Liberty Stadium.

Wenger was left to rue a missed opportunity to make up ground on the top four and he wants to see an improvement against the champions.

"That's now twice - at Swansea and at Fulham - where we have given the game away," Wenger told Arsenal Player. "At our level that is frustrating and not good enough.

"It is down to a lack of composure and the right decision-making. It is alarming because at Fulham we were 1-0 up and we lost the game. Today we came back to 2-2 and straight away we gave the third goal away. It is really a concern.

"It is a massive opportunity [next Sunday] because you feel we have given six points away in the last two games in a way that is unbelievable. It is time for us to wake up and be focused - we have a good opportunity to do that against Manchester United."
