The current break was ushered in with a comfortable win over West Bromwich Albion - their ninth victory in 11 matches. Jenkinson thinks that has made a big difference.
"It just makes your life a whole lot more pleasant," he told Arsenal Player. "When you lose it takes a lot out of you and two weeks is a long time to dwell on a defeat, so it was really important to get a good result against West Brom.
"Everyone went away with a positive mindset compared to when you draw or lose. I think it was vital we got that, now everyone is feeling positive. Hopefully everyone will come back without any injuries and we'll be ready to crack on against Norwich."
