Mikel Arteta dissects the reason Arsenal lost three times in a row

By db-admin – Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta, tries to dissect the reasons behind his team’s three successive defeats. Arteta highlighted the Gunners’ ineffective finishing.

Arsenal had seen the bright light in achieving the target of qualifying for the Champions League next season. Because, with the positive results achieved, Granit Xhaka and his team mates occupied the fourth position of the standings.

However, slowly Arsenal’s position slumped. This is inseparable from the three consecutive defeats suffered by the London Cannon. Arsenal were defeated by Crystal Palace (3-0), Brighton & Hove Albion (2-1), and Southampton (1-0).

Mikel Arteta as the person in charge behind the wheel did not deny that there was something wrong with Arsenal. He feels Arsenal’s sharpness needs to be improved.

“I understand more and more about our efficiency in front of goal and what the enemy does in our box with the chances created is not really connected,” Arteta told Arsenal’s official website.

“There are times when we have to criticize ourselves for not playing well, especially the first half against Crystal Palace.”

“However, I think we have created more than enough chances to get a much better result. The answer lies in our own hands,” said Arteta.

Now, Arsenal have a tough test. The Gunners will visit Chelsea headquarters in the Premier League match. Arteta admitted that he had tried to add an injection of enthusiasm to his players

“I’ve been clear to the players about the reason we lost in those games. Then, I gave my support to make them feel confident again.”

“The reason is that confidence is what they need and we have to do it together from now until the end of the season,” added Arteta.
