Mikel Arteta knows we don't have time to dwell on our Carabao Cup quarter-final exit.
A run of three Premier League games in seven days awaits, starting with Chelsea at home on Boxing Day - and our is hopeful the festive period will bring a change in our fortunes.
"Things have to turn around," he told Arsenal Media. "This is a crucial moment for us in the season and we have to do it this week.
"Obviously the two goals that we conceded [against Manchester City] put the game into a really difficult situation. The first one was a really soft one really early in the game. That obviously gives us the worst possible scenario in the situation we are in, a real test.
'The team reacted really well and after that we kept trying, we scored a really good goal. We started to be on top of the game for 25 minutes after that, I think we were the better team. Then in the best moment of the game, we concede another soft goal.
"After that, we kept trying, we had a really good situation to go completely through on goal with Lacazette but we missed the pass and on the counter they scored an offside goal. After it was 3-1, I think the game was over.
"I'm really feeling for the players, and obviously for our fans because something is happening every game for different reasons. But we need results."
