Arsenal

’s performances in the past two weeks have been promising as they have managed to defeat

Chelsea

and

Brighton

. Arteta’s team are now in 13th place in the League table with 20 points and have secured a nine-point gap with the relegation zone. Despite the recent performances by the team’s youngsters,

Mikel Arteta

has insisted that his club’s plans for the upcoming transfer window won’t change.

"No, the last few results won't change our approach to the window.”

Asked about the rumors around Arsenal’s interest in signing Real Madrid playmaker Isco, Arteta responded:

"Obviously we cannot talk about individual players."

The Gunners boss was also asked about Bukayo Saka’s recent performances.

"I would like everybody to be cautious and let him be and let him develop.

"I think he's having the right progression, I think he's got the right people around him, in his house, in his entourage.

"Then he's got the right team-mates as well to support him all the time, give him confidence, keep his feet on the floor but also give him support and confidence.

"Hopefully we can be the right coaches around him and the right club to see what he can be in the future.

"Today he had a difficult game in the first half because we weren't using certain moments to generate advantages for him and the other attacking players in the right way.

"The game becomes really difficult with your back to goal against a back five in a low block.

"In the second half, we started to play different balls and attack in a different way. They found more freedom, more space and more capacity to unlock the situations and the block.

"We created four or five big chances and he was involved in most of them."
