Rosicky: Hopes the worst of the season is behind the Gunners
Tomas Rosicky believes Arsenal can banish their early-season woes and resurrect their campaign.
The Czech midfielder is in no doubt his side, who host new boys Swansea after the international break, will soon be back to form after a winless start to the Premier League.
A disappointing draw at Newcastle was followed by a 2-0 home defeat to Liverpool and the humiliating 8-2 debacle at Manchester United prompted a rare spending spree by boss Arsene Wenger.
The Frenchman drafted in Mikel Arteta plus defensive duo Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos, amongst others, handing Rosicky renewed optimism in the process.
"We are at the very beginning of the season and there is still plenty of time to turn things around completely," Rosicky told the Czech newspaper Blesk.
"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 admits the squad will analyse just what went wrong at Old Trafford when they return to North London next week.
"There is probably no sense in commenting on the game after such a hammering," said the 30-year-old.
"The best you can do is to forget and start from scratch.
"We will definitely discuss it when everyone returns from international duty and there is no point speaking about it now."
