Arsenal's defensive frailties have been evident for all to see so far this season with the Gunners having shipped 16 goals after just seven games.

Arsene Wenger's side are currently 15th in the Barclays Premier League with only seven points, and find themselves just four points from the foot of the league.

There is, however, a sense of optimism around the Arsenal camp as the likes of Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker steadily find their feet following summer moves to the Emirates Stadium.

Aaron Ramsey, meanwhile, believes all the players should take collective responsibility for the failings so far this term, and the Gunners are a team on the up.


"I think defensively as a team at times we've conceded sloppy goals," explained the Welsh midfielder.

"Hopefully now we can start defending properly and be more solid as a team.

"I think going forward we're still a threat, still dangerous. We just need a few things to improve on and we'll be fine."
