Hector Bellerin, the Arsenal right-back, they will need to learn lessons and stop "losing against ourselves" after dropping three points at Wolves.
"I always say that teams are not beating us, we are losing against ourselves. It's for us to learn," Bellerin said. 
"Hopefully this will be the last time. We were on such a good run, great momentum, great confidence in the team.
"We just need to forget this step because situations like this are not going to happen very often. We'll go on to the next one."
