Arteta Vows to keep Arsenal Up
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has vowed to fight and remain with Arsenal despite his continues poor English Premier League results. Arsenal is currently facing their worst start in the league since 1981.
Mikel Arteta side suffered their sixth defeat in the Premier League this season with Sunday’s 2-0 north London derby loss at Tottenham. Arsenal is now occupying the 15th place with just 13 points from 11 games.
The manager said: “I have to support the players, keep fighting and keep going there is not any other way.” “But I saw a team. I saw my team full of desire, passion, dominating the game, creating all the chances, all the situations, but in the end, it is about the end product and this is why they are first in the table.”
Arsenal have scored just 10 goals in the Premier League this season, a tally matched by Spurs forward Son Heung-min, who got his 10th of the season with the opener on Sunday.
Mikel Arteta’s men had the full possession but could not score a goal against the league leaders Tottenham.
Arteta also said: “Very simple – we need to score goals. It is not sustainable.” “It doesn’t matter what we do in other departments if we don’t score, we need to put the ball into the net urgently. At the moment it looks like we need a lot to score a goal.”
Concerning Partey’s injury, he said: “He is injured and in the same area, unfortunately, we don’t know how bad it is.” “It was too quick, it was a four-against-three situation. I haven’t spoken to him, I don’t know exactly how it happened or if he felt something extremely serious. I will look at it and talk with him.”
Arsenal Player Hector Bellerin recently came out to say to Arsenal the club needs to focus and and committed to the game but with the recent result it seems his advice is not hitting the right spot in the team.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho backed Arteta to turn Arsenal’s fortunes around, admitting they made it difficult for his side, who went back to the top of the table as a result of the win.
The former Manchester United and Chelsea coach said: “It was a big game in every sense, not just because it was Tottenham-Arsenal.” “I want to give words, congratulations to Mikel Arteta because he gave us a very difficult game.
“Tactically they were very good, very organised. They gave us problems, problems we were able to resolve.” “They have a good tactical courage and incredible spirit. They are a good team and he is a good coach.”
