Arteta Pleased With Defence

Arteta Pleased With Defence

Mikel Arteta has said the hard work that the players have been doing on the training pitch is more than returning the rewards during games.

Speaking to arsenal.com the midfielder said our defensive improvements over the last few weeks were their for all to see, and it was giving us the perfect basis to build from and pick up more wins.

'We have been trying to get everything tight and be more solid. Now we are on a run, we are keeping it together and getting clean sheets. That's important.'

It was a good performance overall against West Bromwich Albion, and Arteta was pleased to take all 3 points.

'I am pleased we won. We have a break now and it leaves you with a really bad sensation if you don't win before one of those. We know we have the talent and desire in our team to get better.'

it is good if we keep it tight. we were very efficient in the last 10 games & i hope we keep it that way rather that going all out attacking & neglecting the defensive duty we were so prone to. that's the way titles are won

We still look shakey from time to time, but I guess it takes a while for things to mesh together. For the most part of the season three out of our four defenders have been brand new to the team, that's not an easy thing to deal with.
