Arsene Wenger is confident beating Tottenham Hotspur will give his squad a boost ahead of their trip to Leicester City on Saturday.
The Gunners bounced back from two away defeats to beat Mauricio Pochettino’s side 2-1 at White Hart Lane in the first north London derby of the season.
Arsenal had won their first two games on the road before slipping up at Dinamo Zagreb and Chelsea, and Wenger is hoping that his side can continue to build momentum at King Power Stadium.
“It is difficult but I must say that our away record has been great,” he said. “We do not go into these games feeling that we have too much of a handicap because we have done extremely well away from home.
“If you look at our results away from home, they are among the best and I think we have been the best away from home. That shows we have the mental qualities. In these two games we played with 10 men under very unfortunate circumstances.
“We showed what fighting is about on Wednesday night because the game was more about commitment and mental resources than fluency. That’s what we showed on Wednesday.
“It keeps us in all the competitions and that is something that is a very positive feeling. It shows that we have a big squad at a very strong level and I have always considered that because I have confidence in every single player.”
