Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his players will keep fighting and believing in the title after only managing a draw at home against Southampton.
The Gunners have only won one game in the Premier League this year as they dropped to fourth place in the table.
But the Frenchman, who dismissed criticism of dropping points in a crucial stage of the season, was upbeat at the end of the 90 minutes.
"We put the energy level in and created chances," Wenger told BBC Sport.
"I cannot fault the team on that front. It is not only luck. I don't believe too much in luck. We feel disappointed and guilty. In a game like that when you create chances you want to win. We had the chances to win it. But their keeper kept them in it.
"You have to always think the opponent will play well and despite that still score. We had all kind of chances and it looked like it would come.
"But sometimes you lose these games.
"[Same old Arsenal?] Look, I don't know why you say same old Arsenal.
"For 20 years we have been at the top of the Premier League. At the moment we have to say that we have dropped points but we have to keep fighting and believing."
