Mikel Arteta: Norwich City game 'must-win'

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has labeled their Premier League clash with Norwich City as a 'must win' following their club's poor start to the league. 

The Gunners have had their worst start to the Premier League for 67 years. The north London side is at the bottom of the table with zero points and a negative nine-goal difference having failed to win in their three opening matches. 

Arsenal were hammered 5-0 by City just before the international break and now ahead of their home tie with Norwich, Arteta admits the match is a 'must-win'. 

"We know how difficult the start was with injuries, with a lot of Covid issues that we had and extremely difficult games that we had to play," he said.

"We have to reset now, we need to restart, hopefully get everybody back on track and start to win football games."

On pressure

"It always is at Arsenal," he said.

"The pressure is always there to be as high as possible in the league table.

"We need the first win. We are playing in front of our own fans after a disappointing start so it's down to us to provide everything we have."
