Tomas Rosicky has admitted Arsenal’s defeat to Chelsea was a ‘slap in the face’ and ‘like a suicide’, but has the midfielder wants to focus on the positive aspects of the season.
The Gunners face Swansea tonight with a chance to close the gap at the top of the table to 4 points, and the Czech is expecting his teammates to provide the right response to what happened at the weekend.
“There are still eight games to go and so many points still to play for,” he told Arsenal.com.
“When I played in Germany for Borussia Dortmund and we won the title there, in the season that we won it we were five points behind first place with four games to go and we still managed to win it.
“Everything is possible but the most important thing at the moment is to bounce back straight away.
“If you see in the past almost every time we had a negative result we always had a good reaction up until now. We have the experience of turning a negative into a positive very quickly. I’m expecting the same thing to happen on Tuesday.
“I’m very confident that we can turn it around again and we have two big games at home now.”
Rosicky was one of the only players to come out of Saturday’s defeat with, if not credit, not no credit. Let’s hope tonight he can contribute to a good Arsenal win.
