Arsene Wenger urges Gunners to respond quickly after derby defeat


Manager Arsene Wenger says Arsenal will profit from facing Leicester City three days after losing to Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby.

The Gunners will host Nigel Pearson's men at the Emirates on Tuesday night and it will be a golden opportunity to get back on winning terms.

Leicester City lost at home against Crystal Palace on Saturday and stay bottom of the table with 19 points.

"Yes it's good [to be back in action so quickly]," Wenger said in his post-match press conference.

"If you respond well, it's very good. We play at home against Leicester, a team who fight not to go down. We have to recover from the disappointment and be ready to respond very quickly."

Meanwhile, the Frenchman was full of praise for Spurs hero Harry Kane.

"He was good as always," Wenger said.

"He grows and he has a good determination. He doesn't stop, he keeps going.

"The regret I have is that we gave him a cheap goal. It's worrying that at the back, with five minutes to go, we are always there ready to make the same mistakes.

"Overall, we defended with solidarity but the biggest regret is that we didn't have a good day. We can do much better - that is for sure and that is the positive of the day."
