​Arteta seeing positives in Arsenal dressing room after Liverpool defeat

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is looking at the positives after his team lost 4-0 to Liverpool at the weekend.

The Gunners saw their progress in the Premier League brought down to reality after a humbling at Anfield against one of the favourites to win the competition.

Arteta is busy preparing the team for their game against Newcastle United on Saturday, and believes the reaction of the players to the Liverpool loss is encouraging.

"I really liked the reaction that we had already in the dressing room at Anfield after the game," Arteta said in his pre-match press conference.

"How some players took leadership and described what happened in a really honest way, and looked forward.

"This is something that before it didn't happen, and I am really pleased it is happening at the moment.

"This is not something that in a season it will never be like this, there are always bumps in the road, there are results, there are injuries, there are issues you have to deal with and I really like how the team has reacted through the week.

"There are a lot of things you can learn [from the defeat], you see the standards you have to raise to compete with those teams in that league, and how consistent they do it for every game, but as well how consistent they do it throughout the game. They dominate every area, and that's why they've been so successful."
