Mikel Arteta has fired shots at his own team for not scoring a goal against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. Arsenal fell to a 2-0 defeat in the North London and with that defeat the Gunners have their worst start to a season in 39 years. Star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did not even register a single shot on goal and that annoyed Arteta.
“You look at all the stats, they’re in our favour, but at the end of the day it’s about putting the ball in the net,” Arteta told a media conference afterwards. “We had the chances. We had generated probably more than ever this season, put the ball in the box more than ever, had the numbers there. But at the end of the day we have to score the goals, and when they had a half chance they scored, and at the moment we haven’t. To build something, you need results.”
“I take a lot of positives for the way we played, when we come here in this moment and play with the personality, the courage, the passion, the energy and the belief the boys showed. At the end it’s a football match and you have to win it, and we lost again today.” After the defeat Arsenal are in 15th position on the Premier League table, 11 points behind league leaders Tottenham
