Arsene Wenger says Arsenal should remain positive despite dropping points at home on Saturday as they were held 1-1 by Fulham.
Thomas Vermaelen levelled late on for the Gunners at the Emirates to cancel out his earlier own goal which threatened to give Fulham a shock win.
"You have to give credit to Fulham, they defended well and their goalkeeper played well," said Wenger.
"They saved the ball on the line - it happens only to us that the defenders play behind the goalkeepers.
"It happened at Norwich [last week] and against Fulham, but you have to give them credit.
"They are in a position where they need points and you can understand that."
Although the Gunners were hopeful of victory against Fulham, the draw extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 10 matches - eight of which have been victories.
Arsenal host Manchester City in the Carling Cup quarter-final on Tuesday and Wenger said he was confident the Club was on the right track.
"Overall if you look back at where we came from we have a long unbeaten run and of course we are disappointed because we dropped two points, but I feel we are in a way of improvement and hopefully we can show that again Tuesday night."
