Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez believes the race for fourth spot will go right to the end of the season.
The Reds held on to the last Champions League spot despite their 1-0 defeat at Arsenal, and Benitez was keen to look at the positives.
He said: "When you lose after nine games without losing you have to be disappointed. They (Arsenal) are a good team but now we think about the future. The race for fourth position will be to the end and we have to be ready for the next game.
"It is difficult for anyone to win too many games in a row. The main thing is to be calm and to keep going.
"I felt the team was defending well. We had some chances and maybe we could have scored, especially at the end.
"This year we have had some decisions that we are not very happy with. Today (Wednesday) is another one. But you cannot complain too much because you have to be ready for the next game. You cannot waste time talking about this."
