Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has said the clubs next Premier League fixture in one week, will be crucial to their Premier League status.
Arteta is under heavy pressure after the Gunners’ worst start to a season since 1974.
The 38-year-old retains the support of senior figures at the Emirates and belief in his long-term vision remains.
But results must improve with a home game against Chelsea on Saturday and trips to relegation-threatened Brighton and West Brom either side of New Year’s Day.
The next seven to eight days are going to be crucial to see where we’re going to be heading to in the Premier League,” Arteta said.
“The best medicine when you are in this situation is to win a football match. Every defeat is another hurting moment, another moment of disappointment, another moment you have to lift yourself and that’s what we’ve got to do.
“I think the medicine for all of us would be to come here against Chelsea, beat them and then move from there. It’s exactly what we all need.”
