Arsenal are over Chelsea defeat, insists Gibbs

Kieran Gibbs insists the Arsenal squad are not dwelling on their defeat to Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend, ESPN has reported, although the full-back admitted it took the Champions League win over Olympiakos to banish doubts from the minds of some of the players.

Arsenal were unbeaten this season before they met London neighbours Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium but that streak came to an end thanks to a Fernando Torres strike and a Laurent Koscielny own goal, both courtesy of dangerous Juan Mata free-kicks and slipshod defending.

It had been suggested by Arsenal assistant manager Steve Bould after the Gunners made a sloppy start to their midweek fixture against Olympiakos that the Chelsea defeat had hampered the players, but Gibbs believes the victory over the Greek side has cleared the air.

Gibbs, who was named in Roy Hodgson’s England squad on Thursday, added that Arsenal intended to return to their past form as soon as possible. He said: “It was important to bounce back after a defeat [against Chelsea]. We wanted to shake off a few doubts that we had. We certainly did that and we're back on the front foot now. This is what we have to keep doing and keep pushing on from here.
