Arsene's post-Blackburn comments...

"We had 11 international players on the pitch at the start of the game. We had a lot of the ball and Blackburn defended well. We had 16 shots at goal, they only had one shot at goal."

"We made a massive mistake on the goal and we were not good enough to win the game, it is as simple as that.

"Not one defeat is acceptable. You are in this job to win every single game."

"You do not want your fans to be happy when you lose at home to Blackburn when the team has one shot at goal. It is very painful and very disappointing to lose a game like that. What is important now is to focus on the next one."

"The season is not over. For you maybe, not for me.

"If we feel sorry for ourselves we would be completely wrong. We have a massive game on Tuesday night and we have to show that we some response in the team."
