Arsene Wenger has admitted that the 2-1 reverse at Old Trafford last Sunday, which halted Arsenal's title charge once and for all, still wrangles. But he insisted that his team must aim to finish as high in the table as possible.
Speaking of Sunday's defeat Wenger said,
'It will never go out of my system, but we want to focus forwards and what is in front of us,'
'Now is a good opportunity for us to show mental strength and to finish as well as we can, as high as we can because second place is still possible.' Wenger told the official website.
Le Boss was keen to stress that despite a difficult two months for Arsenal, his young charges had made another step in their development in this campaign,
'Overall, I believe we have made big progress this season. We were very close to the two trophies which really matter to us and we want to go into the next season feeling we have moved forward.
'I believe we will benefit from all which we have learned this year and will come back even stronger.'
Here, here. Adversity brings steel and I can see the tumultuous end to our campaign instilling a character and togetherness in the side that will reap rich rewards next season. We are already three points up on last season's points total and the likes of Bendtner, Walcott and Senderos will have learned a great deal. People are very quick to forget that the Invincibles were built on the back of consecutive painful Cup Final defeats to Galatasaray and Liverpool. Let's hope the recent malaise serves to galvanise the Gunners.
