The Gunners followed up their defeat at Norwich last Saturday with a feeble display in the Champions League against Schalke on Wednesday, in which they failed to register a shot on target until the 93rd minute.
Spanish midfielder Arteta has vocally admitted his concerns that Arsene Wengers’ men have taken their eye off the ball and says they need to stop making errors at crucial times during games.
“We have to bounce back. We have two days now to get this result behind us and hopefully we can get a win on Saturday,” he said.
“The way we are giving these points away, for me it is not good enough.
“We are controlling most of the games but then we seem to make mistakes at certain times which is costing points.
“We cannot allow for that to happen.”
