"I wanted to see a win today and to score a few goals but we were fatigued. We gave the ball away, but I cannot fault the spirit. It wasn't enough." he said.

After seventh time in a row in Premier League matches without scoring once,

Mikel Arteta

admits that the spirit of his side is fine.

He, however, admitted that the

Arsenal

players  missed the chances and failed to create enough chances.

He said:

"Some freshness and quality in the final third was missing. We had a lot of entries into the final third but no big, big chances.

"I wanted to see a win today and to score a few goals but we were fatigued. We gave the ball away, but I cannot fault the spirit. It wasn't enough.

"Kieran Tierney is a real threat and the way we attack on the left is really important but he is injured and we have to find a solution. He will have an MRI scan tomorrow.

"Roy Hodgson has done that all through his career, that is how they beat a lot of big teams. We had the plan we just didn't have the execution."

He added that he is probably not doing enough to win a game. He said:

"We are playing a lot of games and you can see fatigue is paying a price, many players aren't fresh.

"We had a period that was fatigue-related where we kept giving the ball away. We lacked the quality in the final third to win the game."
