The Gunners return to action this weekend with a home game. Arsenal clinched victory against Manchester United last week after losing two game in a row.

The North London side also backed up their form with a 4-1 win against Molde in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Mikel Arteta side is yet to drop points as their 100% record in Europe is still intact.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta has backed his play maker Willian to return to his top form which he exhibited in the opening games of the season. 

If you recall that the 32 years old moved to Arsenal this summer as a free agent. 

Willian, 32,showed flashes of his experience picking up two assists on the opening weekend of the Premier League season during a 3-0 win at Fulham.

But since then, the Brazilian is yet to score and defeat an assist. He has also missed several games due to calf injury sustained two weeks ago. 

Mikel Arteta believes lack of pre season and injuries lately has been the reason for his deep in form.

“I think he started really well with his first game against Fulham, then he had an injury and he didn’t have any time to train, he didn’t have any pre-season and he was later than the others,” said the Gunners boss.

“Then we’ve been changing the front three and they need to generate that cohesion, that understanding and those relationships on the pitch between the front players in order for things to work better.

“I can see a development in the last two games and the understanding of things that we do but he’s not used to. He’s getting better and better and we all know the quality that he has and he’s a great option to have on the pitch."

It's understood that Willian is a is yet to provide a single assist in eight appearances. He is also yet to score his first goal for Arsenal.

But Arteta believes the play maker can make a difference in the team with his experience. 

Arteta added: “He’s a player who can make a difference, he’s got the ability to find that last action to open the door when everything is really tight. 

“To score a goal, create an assist and the personality and understanding that he has on the pitch to manage the game we need in certain moments. At Old Trafford, I think he did that really well.”
