OPINION: One Error in The Arsenal Team That Mikel Arteta Keeps Complaining About

ARTICLE SOURCE: MY OPINION

Arsenal FC is one of the Premier League's most in-form teams this season. The team is in a solid position on the standings after defeating Newcastle United FC to stay in fifth place, level on points with fourth-placed West Ham United FC. Mikel Arteta, the coach of Arsenal FC, is encouraged by his team's drive to grow in all areas this season, but he isn't totally content with their performances, even when they win games. Despite Arsenal FC's 10-game unbeaten streak, Mikel Arteta continues to bemoan one facet of his club that he believes is a weakness.

Arsenal FC manager Arsene Wenger claimed after the game against Newcastle United FC that his team made too many poor passes and did not press the opposition well enough. He also bemoaned the team's failure to score more goals, despite the fact that they had enough opportunities to damage their opponents. Mikel Arteta's constant criticism of the team stems from the fact that Arsenal FC has instances when they do not push the opposition aggressively enough. After scoring one or two goals, they also cut down the tempo of their games.

Mikel Arteta's main problem is that Arsenal FC does not show urgency in their games from the start, but they do improve in the second half, which is why Liverpool FC was able to apply a high press against them and win the ball back high up the field a few times. The young lads will be anxious to show improvement in their game against Manchester United FC on Thursday night, as Mikel Arteta continues to gripe about these areas of their game.

It's safe to claim that Arsenal FC coach Arsene Wenger is asking too much of his players, given that the team is full of young foreign players who will require time to adjust to the Premier League's fast tempo. While they can improve and manage possession like Manchester City FC, expecting them to reach that level this season with the young players Arsenal FC presently has is unreasonable.
