Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has agreed with critics that his team is not good enough to win titles but he is confident that the team is on the right track to becoming one of the best in the league.

The Spanish boss took over the job at the Emirates Stadium some months back and has been able to restore a level of authority in the club. He has not just given the North London outfit a better outing; he has helped them to win games against big sides. Under his reign, the Gunners have already won the FA Cup title and the Community Shield.

Despite all of these, critics have noted that the North London outfit still have a long way to go before challenging for top titles in the coming years and this has been backed by the former Man City academy manager.

However, the North London outfit have suffered some setbacks this season and they sit 11th place in the Premier League with four wins matched by four defeats but they have enjoyed a perfect record in the Europa League so far.

The last Premier League game against Aston Villa is one to forget by Mikel Arteta’s team as they lost 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium. Mikel Arteta in his reaction claims his team still have a long way to g, noting that they are undergoing a process and results have to be immediate.

As he closes in on a year in the job, the boss is well aware of the hard work that still needs to be done if we’re to close the gap on our traditional ‘big six’ rivals.

“So far we have played 14 games in all competitions this season, we won 10 and lost four and the four of them have been in the Premier League, so it is a little bit imbalanced. There are a lot of things to do, short term and medium term, we have seen a lot of changes not only on the pitch but structurally as a club as well, it’s been difficult, it’s been a challenging time in the last three or four months, a lot of things have happened.”
