Arteta accepts full responsibility for Arsenal’s poor form

2 min read

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says he is ready to “take the bullets” for the club’s dismal form in the Premier League and urged his players to put everything on the line to arrest their slump.

Arsenal suffered their fourth defeat in five league matches on Sunday after going down 1-0 at home to Burnley, leaving them 15th in the standings with 13 points.

The club are off to their worst start to a season in almost 40 years, leading to questions over Arteta’s future — 12 months after he replaced Unai Emery at the Emirates Stadium.

“I feel the pressure all the time. It will always exist,” Arteta told reporters ahead of Wednesday’s league clash against Southampton.

“We have to face it being brave, fighting and no one giving up. It’s not time to hide. It’s time to put your face and your body on the line.

“At the moment, I’m sorry but we have to take the bullets. We are not winning football matches and you have to put your chest there and (say) ‘hit me’ because you have the right.”

Arsenal are five points off the relegation zone but Arteta is confident that the tide will turn soon.

“I want to think that we are in a blip, losing football matches makes me believe that but we need to start to win,” Arteta added.

Midfielder Granit Xhaka was sent off against Burnley after a VAR review spotted him grabbing Ashley Westwood by the throat.

When asked if Xhaka had apologised to his team mates, the Arsenal coach said: “It’s been resolved internally and this is all I can say. He has had tough times here and he’s not the only one, there’s a lot of players that have had rocky moments.”
