Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he was “worried” about his side’s recent results on a night where three title challengers were beaten.
The Gunners’ 2-1 loss to Swansea leaves them third, six points adrift of leaders Leicester and Wenger says they “must get back to positive results”.
Wenger said his side’s loss of form “looks a bit” like a confidence issue after Ashley Williams scored late on to earn relegation-threatened Swansea a 2-1 win.
Arsenal have lost three games in a row for the first time since 2010 and injuries to defender Laurent Koscielny and goalkeeper Petr Cech could prove key when they meet Tottenham on Saturday.
“At the moment I am worrying about our results,” Wenger, 66, said. “At the moment we don’t dream. We have to be realistic and come back to what we do well, the basics.
“It’s a very disappointing result. The players are very down but we have to respond to that. I believe that we need to get back to positive results before we speak about the Championship which is at stake at the moment.”
