Wenger demands instant Arsenal response for Liverpool clash

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is seeking an instant response after elimination from the Capital One Cup by Chelsea.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is seeking an instant response after elimination from the Capital One Cup by Chelsea.

Arsenal will have a chance to quieten the naysayers on Saturday, when in-form Liverpool come to north London.

That match is followed by trips to Dortmund and Manchester United, but Wenger does not see any extra significance in the clash with Brendan Rodgers' side.

"Look, in football it is always difficult to be definite," Wenger said.

"People go quickly to definite conclusions. After the first game against Aston Villa, we were relegated.

"Today we are in a strong position in the league. It is down to how we get rid ourselves of these mistakes without losing the belief in our qualities. That is what is at stake."
