Arsenal’s Arteta demands fine game against Crystal Palace

Mikel Arteta wants Arsenal to keep up the form, they were in before the international break, against Crystal Palace. Arteta demands more changes and a fine game as Arsenal recovers from a terrible start to the season and prepares to face Crystal Palace.

In their first three Premier League games, the Gunners were winless but won their next three before drawing with Brighton & Hove Albion to extend their unbeaten streak to five games in all competitions.

Arteta was voted Premier League Manager of the Month in September. The upturn in form has satisfied Arteta but he still expects more from his team once the domestic season resumes. When asked on whether the international break will help again, Arteta told reporters at Thursday’s pre-match news conference, “It is what it is. We managed to turn things around a little bit [during the previous international break] but there is still a big margin for improvement.

“But we got important results that were very needed at that moment and we just need to think about doing things better, progressing up the table and focus on winning our next match. It is the opportunity that this game gives you and you have to stand up, keep believing, work hard, be critical and analyse things to try to change them and improve them. Football always gives you another opportunity,” Arteta continued.

“When you’re in a good moment, you want to carry on playing as quickly as possible. When the confidence is there, and the momentum is there, you want to continue, but again, we knew that we had to stop after that game. [We knew] that we had to get as many points as possible, and we did well enough to do that and be in a different position than a month ago, and now we have to just improve it.”

Arsenal has only scored five goals in their first seven league games, their fewest since 1986-87, and Arteta pleaded with his team to improve their finishing. “It is certainly something we can do better and improve in our efficiency in front of goal, and when we get that balance right it will obviously help us to win more games,” he ended.
