Arsenal prime Wenger wants some result when arsenal will meet Spurs in Saturday’s very own Derby .
Both sides suffered damaging defeats on Wednesday, with Spurs losing 1-0 at West Ham and the Gunners falling to a shock 2-1 home reverse to Swansea City.
Those results left second-placed Tottenham three points adrift of leaders Leicester City, while Arsenal are now six behind top spot after a third consecutive defeat in all competitions.
Should Wenger’s team fall to a fourth-straight loss – a sequence they have not suffered since October 2002 – at the weekend, their faltering title bid will surely be over.
The Frenchman feels their loss to Swansea was unfortunate, but wants to see a strong recovery against their neighbours, who they have only beaten once in seven league games at White Hart Lane.
Wenger told reporters: “We had all the ingredients to win the game, but football is football – it is cruel sometimes. We need to live with that and show that we can bounce back.
“At the moment we are lacking confidence in front of goal and we have to deal with that. We need to get back to positive results before we speak about the championship which is at stake at the moment.
“It is very difficult as it is unpredictable. Manchester City lost, Tottenham lost. It is very difficult to predict what will happen in this league.
