Cesc Fabregas insists there's been no moping at Arsenal after their recent poor form.

Ahead of today's clash with Manchester United, Cesc declared in his column for The Sun: "We have no excuses for our recent results against Tottenham and Stoke and we cannot afford to lose today.

"We have to learn from the mistakes we have made in recent games and put things right.

"At Arsenal, we are wearing the shirt of one of the biggest clubs in the world. As players, we have a responsibility to defend the badge and win trophies.

"And we all have to take responsibility when things don't go so well.

"Some people are already saying that if we lose to United then our title challenge is over for another season.

"But nobody at the Emirates is thinking that. We all believe this is a fantastic opportunity to get our confidence back and show the world we're ready to fight for everything.

"It is far too early to write off Arsenal."
