Mikel Arteta is not ready to quit as manager of Arsenal and insists that he continues to enjoy the support of everybody at the club.
Saturday’s defeat away to Everton at Goodison Park leaves them just four points about the relegation zone after their worst start to a season for 45 years.
And despite a growing number of the fan base wondering if it is time to make a change, Arteta himself is trying to remain positive. He also insisted that despite rumours emerging increasing unrest in the dressing room, everybody is united in trying to turn the situation around.
Arteta was appointed a year ago and led then to FA Cup triumph in August. However, the wheels have come off in spectacular fashion in recent weeks, with a lack of creativity a major problem for the side.
To make matters worse, their main striker and captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is currently sidelined with a calf injury.
