Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has said his side are willing to push themselves to get the club’s first win since the restart of the English Premier league season when facing Southampton on Thursday.
Arsenal have been dealt with back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion. Arsenal now make their third successive away trip to Southampton on Thursday where they hope to right some wrong and wrongs.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said: “I think the Whole them is really willing, we are really very hard. I was really upset because when I was talking about competing it’s 100 minutes now, the type of games that have water breaks and the amount of substitutions you are able to make, you have to keep that focus alive.
The manager said; i hate giving games away when they are under our control and we deserve to win them. It’s all about that edge, the way they run, the way they press, the way they care, it’s completely changed and I am satisfied with that.
We all done more than enough to win that football game but at the end of the day, at this level, you give something to the opponent side some moments it’s going to be difficult to win football games in a row, so the manager is willing to return back to winning ways when facing Southampton on Thursday evening.
