Chamakh tells Arsenal to forget Spurs setback

22 November 2010 08:30
Marouane Chamakh has urged Arsenal to quickly forget the bitter disappointment of defeat against arch-rivals Tottenham by beating Braga to secure a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League. The Gunners threw away a 2-0 half-time lead during Saturday's north London derby at Emirates Stadium, where victory would have sent them top of the Barclays Premier League. Manager Arsene Wenger lamented the inability of his young side to deliver a big performance when it mattered most as they suffered a second successive home defeat. Chamakh - who took his tally to nine goals with a close-range effort - feels having a match so quickly is the perfect opportunity to put that disappointment behind them. "It will help us to forget the Tottenham game and we must focus on Braga and get a victory," the Moroccan said.
