Wojciech Szczesny is disappointed after Arsenal’s third high profile loss in four matches, but is optimistic about their season if they can pull off a result against Bayern Munich in 10 days time.
The Gunners were knocked out of the FA Cup at the hands of Blackburn Rovers before a 3-1 home loss to the Bundesliga giants made their next task a difficult one. Arsenal managed to pull off a 2-1 win over struggling Aston Villa last weekend, however could not pull off back to back victories after Spurs won the North London derby 2-1 on Sunday evening.
Arsene Wenger’s side have recently been handed a boost ahead of their vital second leg Champions League tie with Bayern Munich as this weekend’s League tie with Everton postponed due to their involvement in the FA Cup, meaning they have more time to prepare and rest before heading to Germany.
Szczesny is looking ahead to the trip as he feels it could be just the ingredient to inject some life back into Arsenal’s season and end on a high after a tough result against rivals Spurs.
The Polish goalkeeper told Arsenal’s official website:
We felt we were in control of the game, but conceded two quick goals and it is very hard to come back from two goals down in a big game.

We thought we deserved a bit more from the game, but we lost an important game so we are very disappointed.
Every time we lose a derby there is going to be disappointment but we have to pick ourselves up. We have 10 days until the next game so we have to make sure we are prepared for that.
We have a lot of time to prepare for that game and if we manage to get a good result and hopefully qualify for the next round, that would be a massive boost to have a good run in the Champions League.
