Arsenal latest news: Fresh claim emerges on Mikel Arteta job security at Emirates


Paul Brown reckons that Mikel Arteta still has some way to go to prove himself as Arsenal manager.

How has Arteta fared at Arsenal?

It's approaching two years since the Spaniard replaced Unai Emery in the dugout, but the Gunners faithful are yet to see much improvement since the change in manager.

Arteta did claim the club's record 14th FA Cup crown last July, but that was a rare bright spot in a generally poor spell as Arsenal boss.

His current win percentage stands at slightly over 51 percent, although many of his victories have come in the Europa League and domestic cups.

Arsenal's start to the current Premier League campaign has perhaps epitomised Arteta's time in charge.



The Gunners were comfortably beaten by Brentford, Chelsea, and Manchester City, only picking up their first victory against rock-bottom Norwich.

That slender win last weekend should inject some much-needed-confidence in the side after three straight defeats, but with a tough trip to Burnley and a north London derby on the horizon, it promises to be an anxious September for Arteta.

What has Brown said?

He told GIVEMESPORT: "They've got a run of a few games where they're going to desperately need some results. Every time Arsenal lose, the manager is going to come under pressure because, it's been their worst start to a season for god knows how long.

"One result against a team like Norwich isn't going to turn it for many people, so I think he's got a long way to go before he's proved they've turned a corner."

What can Arteta do to win over the supporters?

Who were journalists originally expecting to be unveiled when Arsenal held a press conference to announce Sol Campbell’s arrival?

It's not difficult to see what Arteta is trying to do with his squad, the recent transfer window proved that.

However, it's been four seasons since Arsenal were last in the Champions League and with Arteta the man responsible for their first year out of Europe since 1996, their patience is surely wearing thin right now.

Maximum points against Burnley and Tottenham would mark a decent start to the season under the circumstances, but should they suffer another defeat before the next international break, then the Spaniard's job will surely be hanging in the balance.
