Arteta brings fire to Arsenal


Arsenal in recent years have lacked what you would call, 'fire'. When coming up against tougher opposition or even going behind in games, the team lacked the fighting spirit to compete and get back up. But since the Spaniards return to the Gunners fans have seen something change.

If you had to look at igaming search or any other betting company before his arrival odd's of finishing in the 4 would have been slim. But this year fans and players are already starting to look with hope at what can be achieved. Arsene Wenger has backed Arsenal to be the “surprise package” of the Premier League this season and believes Mikel Areta’s side could achieve more than a top-four finish.

Asked in an Observer Q&A what advice he would give to Arteta, the 70-year-old replied: “To continue to have a grip on the team, as he has at the moment. And to go to the end of his beliefs.

“I think there is a good team spirit and they have a good chance to do well. I believe it will not be very difficult to improve on the number of points they got last season.

“But I’m convinced Arsenal can be in the top four, if not more. Why not more? They can be the surprise package for me this year: they bought well, they strengthened the defence well.

“And they kept the players who were already there. In my last year I bought (Pierre-Emerick) Aubameyang, they kept him. They have every ingredient and no real weakness.”

Arsenal take on Pep's Man City next in the league which will be a real test for the team. Arteta got one over his mentor in the FA Cup semi final earlier this year and he will be hoping for a similar performance from the team. 

As Arsenal fans lets hope that he can get it done.
