Arsenal players are hurting, reveals Arteta

Arsenal’s Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta has been talking to the Daily Mail about the club’s recent run, how it has been affecting the players and the passion of his teammates.

He said: “You look at the players' faces, the disappointment, the hurt. They want to put it right. You've got players here demanding and wanting to do extra training. It's in themselves to work harder to put it right.


Arsenal, who were already through to the last 16 of the Champions League, lost midweek in Athens as they played Olympiakos at the Karaiskakis Stadium. Olympiakos came from behind to beat the Gunners 2-1 as Arsenal went in at half-time one Tomas Rosicky goal to the good but goals in the 65th and 73rd minute from Giannis Maniatis and Kostas Mitroglou settled the tie.


Arteta admitted that the club’s recent results are effecting the players, but suggested it could eventually work in their favour. He said: “People are hurting, people are upset with themselves, the players are angry. I think that's a good thing. It's not like players couldn't care less, they know what they need to do.


At Arsenal you have a group of players who want to give 100 per cent and that makes things so much easier. I always see that in the dressing room. Always.


The Arsenal fans booed the players off the field after their team lost 2-0 to Swansea at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League last Saturday. The defeat marked their third game without a win and was their fourth defeat in the last 10 games. That form has seen them drop to 10th in the league, 15 points off league leaders Manchester United.
