Southampton's Rickie Lambert has told his team-mates that they cannot stop believing in themselves, despite their poor start to the season.
The Saints have suffered four defeats in their opening four games, and they are firmly entrenched at the foot of the table.
But, after their 6-1 humiliation at Arsenal on Saturday, Lambert says they have to put their rocky start behind them.
"We have learnt a lot in a short amount of time," he said.
"I would like to see what points other teams will get against City, United and Arsenal. We can't be too down.
"Arsenal had a couple of players we couldn't handle. They scored early and got better.
"It was obviously a very bad day and that might happen sometimes. But it's how we react and how we come back next week against Aston Villa. Our season will start now - it's about keeping belief."
