“It’s very very important, tomorrow’s game is very important. Tomorrow we need a win, everyone is having a lot of problems putting us back to our wins. As you all know, the league is very very competitive this season.
And that is why the point gap is not that big, still 4 months to play and there is a lot of time left. Arteta said.
“Tomorrow’s game at Chelsea is a must-win. A lot of things happened, it seems like its more than a month (Arteta referring to how long he’s been in charge) since I took over, a lot of things have changed, a lot of positives. The energy, the atmosphere, the relationship and chemistry with fans has improved and that’s very important. He added.
Also, he said “Things could have been different, we have been unlucky”
He also gave condition in which the recently loaned out player Eddie Nketia will get playtime at Arsenal. Eddie is graduated to the first time from Arsenal’s academy program, but Unai Emery loaned him to Leeds. He wasn’t used much at Leeds, as a result, Arteta recalled Eddie.
Is there a spot for Nketia in Arsenal’s first team? Time will tell, Arteta is in charge and here is what he said about Eddie getting playtime with the first team.
Speaking about Eddie Nketia, Arteta said “I want him to stay at the club, depending on the circumstances, the impact that he makes every during the training. He is showing daily how much he want to play, I have to treat him like other players, and it depends on him how ie performs”.

Eddie may see more playtime when Arsenal play their Europa matches. Arsenal has 2 main strikers, Aubameyang, and Lacazette with Gabriel Martinelli showing some very promising signs.
