Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not losing any sleep over Saturdays 2-1 loss at White Hart Lane warning Tottenham it would be “dangerous” to read too much into their victory.
The Gunners boss is confident that the team will be back to their winning ways midweek against Leicester with Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez fit to play.
Talking to the Daily Mirror the Frenchman said: “Yeah, of course, it is dangerous. But the fact is we lost a game and we cannot deny that.
“But overall there’s a long way to go, so I believe just keep going and recover, show quickly a strong response on Tuesday and then we see where we stand after that. It’s not the first time we lose a game, but how we bounce back is to take the information from what we got at Tottenham and respond very quickly.
“One player who has a chance to be on the bench or to start maybe is Sanchez. We have been consistent recently, but it was a big game.
“And again, when it was tense, we did make the mistake that you cannot afford and it’s a bit disappointing to concede the second goal.”
Wenger was not only unhappy with his team but also referee Martin Atkinson adding: “We made too many technical mistakes. We lost too many balls where we could have put Tottenham in trouble.
“And the Spurs defensive pressure, especially Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb. They got away with a lot today, especially Mason.”
