Arsenal fans cannot be satisfied with the performances of the London team lately. Mikel Arteta's team suffered another defeat, this time against Liverpool in the FA Cup (0:2). Fans of this club hope that Arsenal will sign a striker during the winter transfer window. However, if Mikel Arteta's statements are to be believed, it seems that the chances of such a thing are too small.

"At the moment it doesn't look realistic. My job is to improve our players and get better results with the players we have."- Arteta said, as quoted by eurosport.com


Mikel Arteta stressed the need to stand by the current players, praising their incredible abilities. He mentioned that their recent performance and the draw at Anfield in December showed the team's skills and strengths.

Mikel Arteta wants fans to support the team

Mikel Arteta wants fans to stand by the team, explaining it’s exactly what the players need. He thinks they deserve support because of their effort. He admitted feeling frustrated but said there's no way to guarantee a specific game plan for winning.  Arsenal started the season in a great way.

However, December was not great for the team of the Spanish expert. Arsenal have less and less chance of challenging for the title, given the superiority of other teams such as City and Liverpool. It is too early to make any predictions, given that there is still a long way to go before the end of the season.

Arteta urged fans to keep supporting the team and highlighted the importance of improvement. He said if the team increases their shots on goal from 18 to 35, they could build momentum and win more games. He's confident that working hard will lead to better results in upcoming matches. Arsenal fans trust Arteta less and less, but a few victories of this team can change everything. This month could be crucial.
