Gunners boss looking forward

Arsene Wenger has called on his Arsenal squad to dig deep and recover quickly from their Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona.[LNB] The Gunners were last night missing several key men in the Nou Camp - like captain Cesc Fabregas, Andrey Arshavin and Alex Song - and saw their dreams of European glory ended by a master class from Messi.[LNB]The Argentina forward lived up to his billing as the best player in the world with four superb goals after Nicklas Bendtner had fired the Gunners into a shock lead on 18 minutes.[LNB]The defeat leaves Wenger having to pick his men up for the trip to Tottenham next week, where Arsenal must win to maintain hopes of the Premier League title.[LNB]"The defeat is very difficult to handle because when you go out of the Champions League, the next day you are in front of a very empty future," he said.[LNB]"We have to deal with the disappointment and make sure we are ready for the next game.[LNB]"Of course you worry because it is a big disappointment and we have to recover quickly because we cannot drop any points. That is why we have to recover and try to focus on the Premier League completely.[LNB]"For us over the years White Hart Lane has been a place where we have done well, so we will not go there with a negative history - but it forces you to focus straight away because you know it will be a derby."
