“That’s really good news because we really need them,” he said. “We know that a big part of what we want to do,

as I’ve mentioned before, is going to be determined in the boxes and these are the two players that have the biggest goal threat in the team.

“They are both so important to us as they are able to put that ball in the net.

We need them firing, we need them at their best and the team has to help them to deliver that.

“I think we sometimes get really carried away because of the youth,

the quality and the talent and the potential that we have through the squad,

but, the ones that are going to determine our success and who have to lead our success are the senior players.

Arsenal’s poor start to the season, losing both opening Premier League games 2-0 to Brentford and Chelsea, has left Arteta feeling the pressure.
He knows it has been an unacceptable start and says that only results will save him.
“Well, you have to realise first that the position that we are in is not where we want to be and we should not accept it,” he added.
“We should not use too many excuses to justify where we are, just try to use the moment and the challenge ahead of us as,
an opportunity and take it and encourage everybody around you to have the same mentality, the same energy and things will turn around.
“We have done a lot of work, we are under difficult circumstances at the moment,
but, we need everybody together and the spirit to be fair around here, the togetherness that we have around the team,
and even with the ownership, it’s really strong, but we need to give our fans and probably the outside world some encouragement and that’s only given with results – so we need to get results.”
