James Milner insists Manchester City are eager to avenge their defeat to Chelsea with success against Arsenal on Sunday.
The Premier League leaders lost at Stamford Bridge on Monday courtesy of Frank Lampard's late penalty.
The defeat means rivals Manchester United are now two points behind their neighbours following weekend success over Wolves.
Milner admits his team-mates are disappointed by the loss, but believes City are now fully-focused on the visit of the Gunners.
The former Aston Villa and Newcastle man says City will be working harder than ever after suffering their first league defeat of the campaign.
"We are disappointed but now it is in the past," commented Milner.
"The positive side is that we have another game coming up.
"We will be back in tomorrow, working as hard as we can. If it was possible to give even more then we would.
"The hunger is still there. If anything, there is even more incentive to bounce back with an even bigger performance at the weekend."
