Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna insists that he is staying positive following Sunday's 1-0 defeat at Manchester United in the Premier League.

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has insisted that he is remaining positive, despite Sunday's defeat to Manchester United in the Premier League.

The Gunners were beaten 1-0 at Old Trafford as Robin van Persie netted the decisive goal midway through the first half against his former club.

However, Sagna believes that the league leaders must not dwell on the loss for too long if they want to get back to winning ways.

"If we don't give the maximum and if you lose decisive challenges you put yourself in trouble and that's what happened during the first half," he told the club's official website.

"But I want to think positive, I want to keep looking forward, I want to think we are first and we want to stay first. The best way to do it is to respond well on the next game."

Arsenal return to Premier League action on November 23 when they welcome high-flying Southampton to the Emirates Stadium.
