There’s no escaping the fact that it’s been a difficult few days for everyone connected with the club.
Successive defeats to Manchester City have dented confidence but, ahead of Sunday's trip to Brighton, Arsene Wenger is determined to deliver an improvement in our away form.
"Yes, certainly yes [there's an issue with our form on the road]. That’s down to us to change it," he said.
"I’m always ready for a fight. I’m of course very disappointed but I’ve experienced these situations before.
"I’ve faced difficult situations in my life and [experience] helps to deal with that. [It is down to] experience and a desire to change things, and to continue to help the team."
We will face AC Milan in the last-16 of the Europa League four days after our trip to Brighton, so how will that affect our team selection?
"The game after always has an input, and you always have that in your mind when you play so many games one after another," Wenger said.
"But I think we are in a situation where we first have to try to win the next game rather than make these calculations."
