Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the club’s recent dip in form is due to a lack of confidence.

The Gunners have been out of sorts over the course of their recent encounters, losing to Norwich and failing perform impressively against QPR and Reading.

Their most recent loss came at Old Trafford, where they were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United.

Wenger is not worried by their displays of late and believes that his team need to rediscover their sense of belief if they are to get a positive result against Schalke in the Champions League:

“I believe that if you look at our overall performance we are indeed good, we are still the best defence in the league.” He is quoted as saying by The Metro.

“If you look at the goals conceded, I believe at the moment we don’t have to focus too much on that. What is most important is that we find our game back. Our game is about creating chances, about going forward, about having an offensive drive.

“That at the moment is a bit missing and the most important thing.

“I believe I have a team of great players and at the moment they have forgotten it a little bit how good they are.

“What is most important is that we play again with our enthusiasm, desire to create chances and enjoy our game, more than about do we concede a goal or not.”

“What is most important is that we play again with our enthusiasm, desire to create chances and enjoy our game, more than about do we concede a goal or not.”
