Tomas Rosicky believes Arsenal still have plenty of time to turn things around following the 8-2 defeat to Manchester United.
The hammering capped off a poor Premier League start for Arsene Wenger's side, who have taken just one point from their opening three games.
But Rosicky, who is in Prague preparing for the Czech Republic's Euro 2012 qualifier in Scotland on Saturday, believes the Gunners will bounce back.
He told isport.blesk.cz: "We are at the very beginning of the season and there is still plenty of time to turn things around completely.
"Up until now we always had good starts and finished badly. Maybe it will turn around and we will have a successful season. We must shake it off and respond in the next game."
Rosicky admitted the defeat was hard to take but the Gunners must move on.
"I thought I had experienced everything in football but I was wrong. It was the worst hammering I have experienced in football," he said.
"There is probably no sense in commenting on the game after such a hammering. The best you can do is to forget and start from the scratch.
"We will definitely discuss it when everyone returns from international duty and there is no point about speaking about it now."
Asked how the situation is with his groin problems, Rosicky replied: "It is not completely cured but it won't limit me at all (against Scotland) on Saturday."
