Arsene Wenger is just as disappointed as everyone else following our devastating 3-1 loss against AS Monaco, but is determined to see us bounce back with a win against Everton, according to ESPN.

Our home defeat at the hands of Leonardo Jardim’s side has more than likely put us out of the Champions League, and we can have few complaints after the way we performed.
Wenger has made the team watch the replays of the game, and has highlighted the mistakes made throughout. He hopes this will help us improve heading into our Premier League clash with Everton this weekend, as we need the win to restore our confidence.
“It is always hard [to watch the match again], it is hard to see that you make mistakes,” he said.
“We are all human beings. We were born without any guarantee that we would not make mistakes. What is difficult is switching my mindset from disappointment [of defeat] to Premier League.

“It is a very good opportunity for us to put things right again. Having watched the game again, we started quite well and the goal against us was a big blow. We were shocked that we were 1-0 down after we rushed our game.
“We lost our discipline and everybody became too individual, we were too impatient, then we lost our game a little bit. Apart from that, we are on a strong run. This is a different competition and it is just important we continue our run in the Premier League again.”
There are definitely lessons to be learned, and it’s important we learn them quickly. We can’t afford to let our form in the league drop, as we have worked hard to get up into third place, and don’t want to give it up anytime soon.
“I can talk a lot, but what is important now is to look forward – instead of worrying about yesterday I prefer to look towards tomorrow,” Wenger continued.
“It is important for us to focus on what is in front of us. The season does not stop.”
This is spot on, and regardless of our fate in the Champions League, we have to be looking towards the Premier League and the upcoming FA Cup clash with Manchester United.
