Mikel Arteta is confident that Arsenal can get their season back on track with victory over Manchester United.
The former Everton midfielder says his team mates must keep their focus on their long-term goals instead of dwelling on a poor start to November.
“We have two games, against Manchester United and (Group D leaders) Borussia Dortmund, at home and if we get the crowd with us from the start and get the results then it will be a very different story again,” he said.
“A week ago, after three wins in a row, the place was getting back to normal with everyone looking happy. Then after two disappointing results, (it is down).
“It is a rollercoaster at the moment but we need to manage the emotion because this is a long-term situation and we need to be where we want to be in April and May, so let’s be patient.”
