Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has said that everyone connected to the club has taken important lessons from their 4-0 defeat at Liverpool.
The Gunners are yet to win away from home in the league this season, having lost 1-0 at Stoke too.
But Wenger, speaking ahead of the trip to Chelsea on Sunday, says his team have offered the kind of response, which suggests that they have lost none of their “characters.”
“I believe against Liverpool everything went against us on the day,” said Wenger.
“We were not sharp physically. It was three days before the end of the transfer window and some players had their heads in and out.
“You have to take these special circumstances into consideration.
“You learn from defeats and during the season every team will have a bad patch and bad games. The team that has less of these wins the title.
“We had a very positive end to last season and played very well in games against the big teams, like Manchester City and Chelsea.
“Of course, we have the backbone to come back. You do not win the [FA] Cup the way we did without it.
“Nobody just gives that trophy to you. This team has character.”
