Arteta’s Arsenal were the biggest spenders in the summer amongst the Premier League clubs but there are major doubts over whether they have improved their squad.
The north London club have lost all of their opening three league games, but did manage to bring in one more player in the form of Takehiro Tomiyasu from Bologna towards the end of the window.
Arteta pointed out that there has been a massive turnover of players at Arsenal since he arrived at the club and he believes in the project that he is leading at the Emirates.
However, he admitted that he has a completely new squad at his disposal and his challenge is to find a way to gel the players together as soon as possible this season.
The Arsenal manager said in a press conference: “We have tried to explain the project and the decisions that have been made over the last few months.
“The amount of changes in the past two years is almost 30 players.
“It’s a project that we believed in and we all take responsibility. Now we have to make it work.
“We have a completely different squad. It’s unheard of.
“Now we have to make it work, we have to glide it together, build relationships, chemistry and understanding.
“We have to do that really quickly.”
Arsenal are desperate to get their league season back on track ahead of hosting Norwich City on Saturday.
