Arteta - The areas where we can get even better


Our Boxing Day win at Norwich was our fifth on the bounce in all competitions.

It has been quite a response since our defeat at Everton earlier this month, and has put us firmly in contention for a top-four spot.

But could we aim even higher than that? And what do we need to do to maintain our progress over the second half of the season?

"We go game by game," Mikel Arteta said. "[At Norwich] we played some really good football, we won the game, we competed really well, but there’s still a lot of things that we have to do much better. 

"We have a lot of room for improvement and I’m focused on that, maintain the things that we do so well now that giving us results and consistency and try to improve the rest and the results will come.

"It's still a long long season to go ahead with a lot of unpredictable things probably that are going to happen, but we are there [in the top four]. We want to continue that and we want to continue improving and playing better and better and then let's see where we get.
"I insist the better that we play, the better that we understand the spaces, how we have to attack, the movement, the timing, the cohesion and the execution becomes better because you get in a much better position when you enter the final third. 

"When that happens and you have a clear idea of how to attack those situations and goals or goal situations will come. Then it will come down to the effectiveness of the players in their decision making."
