Arsenal players have demanded extra training in a bid to right their poor form, according to midfielder Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners host West Brom on Saturday in 10th place in the Barclays Premier League following last weekend's 2-0 defeat by Swansea at the Emirates Stadium. The situation, not helped by another loss to Olympiacos in midweek, has led to huge frustration among Arsenal fans - and Arteta says the players feel it just as keenly.

He told the Daily Mirror: "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."
