The Frenchman is currently without the injured Gilberto Silva and Edu and he believes the side are relying too much on Francesc Fabregas.
The 17-year-old Spaniard is currently in his first season with The Gunners, but so far only Freddie Ljungberg has appeared more for Arsenal's midfield.
Wenger has stated the North London outfit always go through a bad period in November and is confident he can turn things around and get the team back to winnings ways.
"We are going through a period where we always seem to have a bad month in November," said Wenger.
"But I have a responsibility to make sure everyone is focused to get us through it.
"It will be no problem as I did it last year and will do it again this year.
"There's still such a long way to go and it's so exciting because there are so many teams in the race.
"We are suffering a bit as we lost two defensive midfielders, with Edu and Gilberto together.
"We are now relying on Fabregas at just 17. He will need a breather at some stage."
