Arsenal to respond in positive manner against Man Utd - Wenger

Arsene Wenger is confident his Arsenal side will respond swiftly to the 5-1 defeat at Liverpool on Saturday.

The Gunners get their chance to atone for that insipid display when they host Manchester United on Wednesday and manager Wenger is expecting a progressive performance from his second-placed team.

"I am confident we will respond in a positive matter on Wednesday night," he said.

"I think it is a shame that we couldn't turn up with a better performance.

"After 10 minutes we conceded two goals on set-pieces, that just shows that the level of concentration was not there and that when nobody takes responsibility in these kind of situations it is always a bad sign.

"It is about how well we do at home at the Emirates, of course starting on Wednesday.

"Recently we have been very good defensively at home and offensively as well, that is what we want to show on Wednesday night."
