Tomas Rosicky has described Arsenal’s 6-0 loss to Chelsea as a big slap in the face ahead of their clash against Swansea on Tuesday.

The Gunners were blown away in the first half as the Blues stormed into a 4-0 lead, with Kieran Gibbs incorrectly sent off after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had handled the ball in the area.

We have the experience of turning a negative into a positive very quickly. I’m expecting the same thing to happen on Tuesday

Chelsea went on to wrap up a 6-0 win and deliver a potentially fatal blow to Arsene Wenger’s hopes of landing a fourth Premier League title this season.

“This is a big slap in the face but there are still eight games to go and so many points still to play for,” Rosicky told Arsenal’s website.

“When I played in Germany for Borussia Dortmund and we won the title there, in the season that we won it we were five points behind first place with four games to go and we still managed to win it.

“Everything is possible but the most important thing at the moment is to bounce back straight away.

“If you see in the past almost every time we had a negative result we always had a good reaction up until now. We have the experience of turning a negative into a positive very quickly. I’m expecting the same thing to happen on Tuesday.”
