Ahead of Saturday’s game against Norwich City, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke about it while leaving the door open for free agent Jack Wilshere. Arsenal must “reset” after a disappointing start to the Premier League season, according to coach Arteta.
In the La Liga table, the Gunners are at the bottom and have yet to pick up a point before hosting Norwich City at the Emirates on Saturday. So far in the new Premier League season, Arsenal has lost all three of their games. The Arteta’s team has lost to Brentford, Chelsea, and reigning champions Manchester City while allowing nine goals without reply.
The manager has Gabriel, Thomas Partey, and Eddie Nketiah available for selection after injury but he will be without suspended Granit Xhaka and injured Mohamed Elneny. Ben White will also return after testing positive for coronavirus earlier. And Arteta is optimistic that his team will be able to start fresh against the Canaries.
According to the official club website Arteta said, “I am really looking forward to having everybody available and trying to start the season the way we want. We don’t want to use any excuses, but we know how difficult the start was with injuries and a lot of COVID issues we had, and extremely difficult games to play.”
“We have to reset now, we need to start and hopefully get everybody back on track, and start to improve our game, which is what we have to do. The pressure is always there to be as high as possible in the league table. We need that first win. We’re playing in front of our fans after a disappointing start, so it is down to us to provide everything that we have performance-wise, to gain a result at the end.”
