Meanwhile, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been reflecting on their defeat to Chelsea in the London derby on Sunday.

The Gunners lost the Premier League encounter 2-0 at Stamford Bridge and are now eighth in the table with 10 points from seven matches, a point behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

‘It was frustrating and we’re disappointed’, Wilshere told Arsenal’s official website. ‘It was obviously better than last year’s result but at the end of the day we still have the same outcome: no points and a disappointed team’.

Fellow midfielder Mathieu Flamini also admitted his disappointed at losing to London rivals Chelsea.

‘There’s a lot of frustration because I don’t think we played that bad’, said the Frenchman. ‘They were good on the counter-attack.

‘We were expecting that but they deserved the victory. There’s a lot of disappointment on our side because we were on a good run and we played well against Galatasaray. But now this has happened so we need to rest and go back again’.
