Per Mertesacker is not dwelling on Arsenal's draw with Wolves, stating the club have more opportunities ahead to crack the top four.
The Gunners were held by the relegation-threatened side at the Emirates with Steven Fletcher cancelling out Gervinho's opener.
The point means Arsenal remain fifth in the table behind Chelsea, although the German is not ready to press the panic button.
Mertesacker believes Wayne Hennessey had a game to remember and that Arsenal will be able to capitalise in future.
"We had a big chance to go into fourth place, but we didn't do that. It was our fault - we had a lot of chances but we didn't score," said Mertesacker.
"There are some days in the life of goalkeepers where something happens like that. He was in great form and it was his day.
"Yes, we had a big chance today, but there are other big chances to come. We are ready to go into the top four and are confident."
Mertesacker had spent the entire of his career in the Bundesliga and he admits playing in England's top flight is more physical and quicker.
"It is a little different between here and the Bundesliga but you get used to everything in the world and hopefully in the next month I will improve more and more," he continued.
"I am very happy to be here and to get this opportunity to build myself up."
He added: "It is more physical, maybe not as technical [as the Bundesliga], but the speed is much harder.
"This the best league in the world, therefore you have to improve your game, but the important thing is to show you can deal with it."
