Mikel Arteta says he still has a lot of work to do in order to help Arsenal improve but he is not looking to rush things.

Arsenal have not tasted defeat ever since the turn of the year.

On Friday, Arsenal recorded an impressive, however marginal, victory against Olympiacos in the Europa League Round of 32. Before that, they also thumped Newcastle United in a 4-0 victory in the Premier League.

Under Mikel Arteta‘s management, the Gunners have shown significant improvement. They have lost just once ever since the Spaniard’s appointment back in December.

But with having won just twice in the league under him, Arteta’s tenure still has a lot of gaps to be filled.

Up next, Arsenal face Everton in the Premier League later today. And ahead of the tie, Arteta has provided insight on his plans to improve the team further.

“Yes but we have a long way to go in this process, to develop a lot of things that I want to implement,” Arteta said as per the Express.

“We need time. I don’t want to accelerate the process and take them somewhere they cannot do because it would not be productive. We have to maintain the things we do good. And maybe then, we have little margins of improvement that we have to aim to achieve.”
