Mikel Arteta says that Arsenal need to bounce back after their back-to-back defeats.

Arsenal vice-captain Mikel Arteta has insisted that his side must bounce back from their recent back-to-back defeats.

Having lost 1-0 at Norwich City in the Premier League on Saturday, the Gunners were well beaten in the Champions League on Wednesday with a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Schalke 04.

The Spaniard admitted that facing the German opposition was a really tough match for the North Londoners.

"It was a really tough game and there wasn't a big difference between the sides," said Arteta.

"We conceded a sloppy goal because you can't leave Huntelaar alone in the penalty area. It makes it very tough for us because we have to go to Germany and get the points.

"We have to put this night behind us and bounce back after two defeats."
