Arteta wants European form transferred to league


Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta is hopeful that his team can transfer their Europa League form into the Premier League.

In the Europa League, Arsenal managed to maintain their perfect record as goals from Eddie Nketiah, Mohamed Elneny, Joe Willock and Folarin Balogun sealed a 4-2 win at Dundalk in their final Group B match on Thursday.

It is the first time Arsenal have won six successive European matches since 2005. Their impressive Europa form is in sharp contrast to their domestic struggles, where Arteta’s men have lost six out of their last nine matches to slump to 15th in the table with 13 points.

“The group stage in general is really positive. It’s never easy to win six games in Europe. We’ve been really consistent and performing well,” said Arteta.

Arsenal, who scored 20 goals in the six group games, will discover their last 32 opponents in Monday’s draw in Nyon, but Arteta was focusing on Sunday’s Premier League game against Burnley.

“We need to start winning football matches immediately. We know that has to start on Sunday,” added the Arsenal coach.

‘The Gunners’ can now focus solely on domestic matters with no European football to contend with until February.
