The Spanish tactician thinks his side is on the right track as the club’s foundation for future success is now in place.

Mikel Arteta

revealed that

Arsenal

had to “go a little bit backwards” under his reign to go forward as they spent a ‘significant’ amount this summer, establishing the foundation for future success.

This season, the Gunners gained no points and scored no goals in their first three Premier League games.

Arteta started to feel pressure as a result, particularly as they spent a club-record £145 million ($200m) in the summer, but things turned as they won three games in a row, including the battle against Tottenham, with Arteta optimistic about the future.

Arteta told 

Sky Sports 

of Arsenal’s long-term project:

“Momentum is down to confidence, it’s down to believing in what you do and really feeling it and trying to embrace it and adding something every week, making sure that the steps are forwards.

“In every project that is impossible to happen every single week and sometimes you have to go a little bit backwards to go forwards. You have to realise that and not lose perspective.

“The changes we made this summer were probably the most significant that we have made since I’ve been here. Now you start to get a sense that we are all on the same page.

“Any project needs the right foundations and now we have clarity in what we want to do. We start to have some stability.

“We have to start unity, which is a big part of it. When that happens, the better the decisions are, everything is more calm and settled and things start to happen.”

After turning things around, Arsenal gained maximum points from the last three clashes.

They are sitting in the top half of the table and aim to get Champions League qualification.
