Frenchman Olivier Giroud has said that the Arsenal players do share the frustrations of the fans following the heavy defeat to Liverpool.

With most eyes on deadline day, Giroud was speaking to the Official Site this week to reflect on our last performance – back to back defeats following an opening day victory over Leicester City – and he knew it certainly wasn’t good enough but he felt it was a bad day for everyone in the side.

‘You know that in a season you will have to deal with these difficult moments, you can`t always be invincible like in 2004. You need to show a big solidarity in the team and keep the team cohesion.’

He went on to explain that the players simply had to keep their heads up and respond in the next match to put it right, and obviously now we are in the international break that’s not ideal.

‘The most important thing is to keep the head up and keep the confidence high no matter what. We understand when we do mistakes in the game, and the most important thing is to realise and understand what we have to do better and not to do it again. After a bad result, to be honest with you, I don`t sleep too much at home and I try to spend my time with my kids and help me to think about something else but once I comeback to the training ground I`m 100 per cent focused on what I miss, what I need to improve.’

He ended by explaining.

‘I think as a team we all focus on the same target and we all want to improve so that`s a good point. Obviously we don`t want to make another bad result the game after so I think we are quite good at that, bouncing back straight away.’
