Arsene Wenger is looking for an immediate reaction from his team following the disappointing defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby on Saturday.
For the first time in quite a while, Wenger admitted immediately after the game that Spurs deserved the three points and few could argue given the way the we were dominated.
Just how they were allowed to do that is another matter; but Wenger stated to the media before the Leicester City clash that it was vital that his team produced a solid performance days after the damaging defeat at White Hart Lane.
Wenger: "We had a very strong run before Saturday so we just want to continue that. We need to respond strongly" #AFCvLCFC

With Alexis Sanchez returning into the squad, we can only the hope that our Chilean superstar continues where he left off in order to fire the team back into the top four.
The fight for the Champions League is intense and the fact that Liverpool and Manchester United didn’t fully capitalise on our malaise is a blessing, but it’s time to go on another run now.
