Arteta Reportedly Admits That His Experiment On The Arsenal's Attacking Has Failed

Arsenal's display is not becoming good either, as more games come on their way. The Spaniard manager has now failed to stop the continuing history of victory for the home team at Etihad, with Manchester City reaching 43 wins in the previous encounters against Arsenal. Having incorporated so much of what made Pep Guardiola a success at his homeground: the winning culture, the impassioned intensity and the composure to pass around a press, it was perhaps only natural that Mikel Arteta should have picked up his mentor's tendency that he seriously considers towards complexity on the big days when facing 'big' rivals and derbys.

According to The Liga Financial, Arteta's plans to produce an attacking formation has so far been seen as a challenge. One could see a logic to what Arteta is attempting in dropping Alexandre Lacazette in favour of an attacking midfielder and it appears to be a shorty blueprint with the intention of making it work, but later fails. After all, a similar approach had brought success in Arsenal's last game, but Arteta needs to think of a breathtaking approach, now that the fans are in need of an invincible Arsenal.

Furthermore, The Sun has claimed that placing Willian in the middle of the pitch in previous encounters had helped to enliven Arsenal's attack, especially in the 2-1 win over Sheffield United, but by starting him as the central attacker at the Etihad Stadium was a miscalculated move that the Spaniard reasoned that he could catch Manchester City's defence off-guard.

Football.london has vividly suggested that more interlocking moves are obviously the reason why Arsenal's future plans might still be in disarray under Arteta. Specifically, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could dart into the space as Willian drags defenders out of the danger zone, whilst Bukayo Saka fills the void his captain leaves on the flank.

Meanwhile whilst that side is a hive of movement, Nicolas Pepe comes sweeping in unnoticed to apply the curly shots. All these pieces of connecting and interchanging must only look utterly joyous on an experienced side with tactical football. Arteta's vision certainly seems to have convinced Willian, though from the Brazilian's own performance, but it is being discovered to be hard to see how he has to transmit these plans onto the pitch.

Arteta is really convinced that he is playing cards that might be umable to execute a win. In an exclusive interview after the Manchester City game, he insisted that, "We need to have the versatility to play in different formations occupying different spaces. It was a game for us, but we left the chances to the home side. The way City plays and the way they track the opponents and the spaces that can be used,, really needs an aggressive opponent to disrupt their moves. Our psychological preparedness was somehow low."

The Daily Mail quoted that fundamentally, it seems peverse that when Arsenal's superboy Saka could get forward, he has to find Aubameyang on his outside. The best chance of the game for Arsenal currently shows the interplay these two can strike up when the youngster is coming infield from the flank. It is something that merits further exploration in future games. But moreso, the Aubameyang is totally misplaced on the flanks.

The Guardian said that it is just a fortnight away that Arsenal get a chance to finally end their hypes away to the big six, and a winless streak will mean that the Gunners will be six years without a win on away games with the big six. If Arteta is really a good-dreamer, and that he wants to end that cold streak, something has to be done further up the pitch because it is hard to see how Arsenal can claim victory even against struggling sides if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's location in the pitch is not interlooked and rectified. A captain and the only dependable striker, the best finisher in front of goal, without a shot on target then is clear that something is not right in the Arsenal's attack.
