Arsenal ace Andrey Arshavin believes his side were unlucky to lose to Manchester United on Monday night.
The Gunners saw United overtake them at the top of the table thanks to Park Ji-sung's first-half winner.
Arshavin felt his side did not deserve to lose and he insists the Premier League is still up for grabs despite United moving into pole position.
"We didn't deserve defeat, the match was a battle. Both teams fought for the result and unfortunately we lost," Arshavin told his official website.
"I think Manchester United had more luck than us during the game, but we were not able to create anything special near their goal.
"We didn't play for a draw, we simply acted responsibly in defence and looked for our chances to attack. If it wasn't for a fortunate bounce at the end of the first half, we would have gone in at 0-0 and the second half would have been easier."
ForgetRussian international Arshavin has called on Arsenal to bounce back from the defeat with victory over Stoke this weekend.
"There is no time to be melancholy or sad, we need to forget this defeat and start thinking about the next match," added Arshavin.
"We need to prepare properly for each opponent. The championship is very interesting this year and nothing has been lost yet."
