Confidence a concern for Wenger
Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal's confidence may have been rocked by last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Norwich.
The Gunners produced a lacklustre display at Carrow Road last weekend as they failed to create chances, despite falling behind in the early stages following Grant Holt's 19th minute opener.
Arsenal followed up their loss at Norwich with a Champions League defeat as German side Schalke inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Wenger's side at the Emirates Stadium, with the north Londoners again failing to create any clear cut chances on goal.
Defender Per Mertesacker has admitted that confidence has dipped following the international break, and Wenger has echoed the German defenders comments.
However, the Gunners boss is confident that results will improve sooner rather than later, ahead of QPR's visit on Saturday.
"I don't say that the players are fragile, but you could see against Schalke that we played all right in the first half, but slowly we dropped. Is it physical or confidence? It is difficult to know," Wenger said.
"Mertesacker is right. This team cares - sometimes you are surprised that they care so much, they do.
"When you don't get the result the confidence goes quickly. That is part of the quality you have to show, that we are capable of dealing with that."
