Arsenal off the mark

Arteta's men had previously failed to pick up any points from their first three matches of the league season but ran out 1-0 winners against newly-promoted Norwich thanks to a second-half goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Pressure had been mounting on Arteta following a slow start in which Arsenal failed to score a goal but his team enjoyed the bulk of the chances at the Emirates on Saturday, racking up 30 goal attempts and limiting the Canaries to just one shot on target.

Gunners starting to climb

Arteta, who described the clash with Norwich as a "must-win game" was delighted with the reaction of his side. The win moves the Gunners up to 16th in the Premier League table.

"For me, it's been the best week or ten days of my career in this industry," Arteta told Sky Sports.

"You learn a lot in difficult moments, who you are with. In difficult moments when you see the people and the level of organisation and the fans we have. It was a deserved win as well because we had chances to finish the game much earlier than we did," Arteta added.

"We knew that today was a must-win game. We came here and you saw the attitude of every player and I'm happy to give something to the fans as well."
