Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has urged the squad to get back to winning ways against Swansea this weekend after a disappointing Capital One Cup

The Gunners, who are priced at 2.75 to win the Premier League, crashed out of the League Cup in round four at the hands of Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Tuesday.

Ross Wallace, Lucas Joao and Sam Hutchinson all bagged on the night to end a run of four victories in all competitions for the north London club.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott both suffered injuries in the cup clash in Yorkshire to further worsen Arsene Wenger’s worries.

Arsenal currently in sit second place in the Premier League to Manchester City on goal difference and Flamini hopes they can get back on track when the league resumes this weekend.

Wenger’s side travel to south Wales and the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea on Saturday and Flamini has urged the squad not to dwell on Tuesday’s defeat.

Flamini said: “It is one of the positive things, you can say, playing every three days that we can make sure we rectify the direction because we have been on a good run.

“We must forget about this one and move forward.”

The midfielder also admitted that the loss of Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain to injuries could prove to be a big blow moving forward.

He added: “They were [costly] injuries because we lost two players in
20 minutes and they are going to be out for I don’t know how long.

“That is difficult for us on top of the victory for the other team.”
