Arsenal news LIVE: Gabriel on David Luiz influence, Marco Asensio transfer UPDATE, Brighton build-up

‘MOVING FORWARD’

Mikel Arteta believes he has put the foundations in place to make real change happen at Arsenal thanks to the summer’s transfer business.

The Gunners took a while to get up and running but they have now won three in a row ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

Speaking ahead of the game Arteta said: “Momentum is down to confidence, it’s down to believing in what you do and really feeling it and trying to embrace it and move on every week, adding something, making sure that the steps are forwards.

“In any project, that’s impossible to happen every single week. Some days you have to go a little bit backwards to go forwards and you have to realise that and don’t lose perspective.

“The changes we made this summer was probably the most significant summer we’ve had since I’ve been here.

“Now you start to get a sense that we’re all on the same page. With any project, you need the right foundations and now we have clarity in what we want to do.

“We’re starting to have some stability. We have to establish unity. And when that happens, there are better decisions, everybody is more calm, everybody is more settled and things start to happen.”
