Van Persie stays positive
Robin van Persie has called for Arsenal to stick together, maintaining that they can still make a success of the current campaign.
Much has been made of the fall-out from the Gunners' 2-1 home defeat by Manchester United last Sunday, which left them five points behind Chelsea after a third successive Barclays Premier League loss.
"There are plenty of games still left, we have recovered from reverses like this before and we will win again, so anybody writing us off is making a mistake," Van Persie posted in a statement on Facebook. "This could still be a good season for us. We have the FA Cup to look forward to and the Champions League."
He added: "We will all be giving 100% to make sure we bring one of those trophies home, hopefully both of them.
"Let's all stick together and fight."
