Chambers: We need to work hard and stay positive

Calum Chambers says Arsenal must stay positive even though we now find ourselves eight points off the top four after another dispiriting away defeat.

Second half goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison secured a 2-0 win for Leicester that leaves Unai Emery’s side in sixth place and without a league win since 6 October.

After the match, Chambers spoke to Sky Sports. Here’s what he had to say…

On a tough night…

It was a tough night. It was a new system for us today. I think there are positives to take from it. We worked hard as a team, we kept them out for a while, we had our chances and on another day we put those chances in. It’s important for us to keep positive, keep believing, keep working hard. We’ve got a bit of time now to get together and carry on sticking together and working on things on the training ground.

On the pros and cons of the three-man defence…

I think we had a bit more control. Defensively we felt a bit more solid. Leicester are a good team, they are going to create chances. I thought we all put in 100 per cent effort today. Obviously, they took their chances and scored a good first goal. As I said, we’ve got to keep believing and stay positive.

On confidence dropping after going behind…

You have to keep believing to the very end. We’ve seen a lot recently where games have changed very quickly. It’s important during a game, whether you go one or two goals behind, you have to keep believing, keep playing, keep doing the things we’ve been told to do. And believing in the philosophy that we’re doing. That’s the important thing when you’re behind, to keep pushing and keep playing.

On the atmosphere in the camp…

We’re all together. Everyone in the dressing room and everyone in the club is together. There’s a good spirit in the dressing room. The lads are all together. We have to keep going, keep fighting in every game and giving it our all. Things will change.

On seeing light at the end of the tunnel…

I do yeah [see it]. With the squad, we’ve got and the players we have, we have got a lot of quality here. We’ve got an international break now, we’ve got a couple of weeks where we can work on things on the training ground. It’s important we do that.

On being able to make up the gap to the top four…

We’ll see. We’ll stay positive and hopefully, we can bring that gap down.
