Wojciech Szczesny is confident that Arsenal will build up momentum once they return to action after the international break.
The Gunners’ defeat at Stamford Bridge on Sunday saw them slip to eighth in the table after a challenging start to the new season.
While Szczesny was disappointed with the result, he is convinced there will be an upturn in form over the coming months.
"You can’t say we’ve played badly against Chelsea, it’s just that we’ve come up against a very strong side"
“I thought it was a very even game,” he said. “But Chelsea have an ability to keep clean sheets at home and I thought they were very good, they took their chances with two brilliant moments.
“One, the brilliant run from Hazard that led to the penalty. On the second goal, the ball from Cesc and the finish. Sometimes you’ve got to take your hat off to the brilliance of the opposition.
“We’ve had a tough run so far. But I’d like to think that our start has been solid, not as good as we expected from ourselves but I believe that, after the international break, we can push on and get more points.
“You can’t say we’ve played badly against Chelsea, it’s just that we’ve come up against a very strong side, probably the favourites to win the Premier League at this point.”
