Wenger: 'We have to stick together and bounce back'

He dismissed our chances of an automatic Champions League place next season in the blink of an eye, saying:

"Automatic qualification in the top two, certainly not, but qualification is still possible. But it will be hard. The Champions League is important, the reality is there so we just have to fight harder next time."

And on tonight's game:

"At the moment we are struggling for confidence and that can effect the senior players as well as the younger ones."

"I thought maybe we could nick a goal you know because we tried to push high up and to score. It's regrettable because we had a throw in for us and a goal for them, so short to go and no chance to come back, its very difficult to take, but we fight hard and we have to stick together and bounce back from that."

"They had the penalty and maybe more clear cut chances than we had, but you know we had a few chances, and especially in the first half we had an offside given on Adebayor that was the opening goal maybe so it could have gone both ways."

"Liverpool was a bit more dangerous than we were but in the end we gave it everything."
