Arteta had brought in some good signings last summer which costed the club a whooping £160m. That spend spree saw the arrival of both Sambi Lokanga, Nuno Tavares, Ben White, Odegaard, Aaron Ramsdale and Tomiyasu.
But unfortunately the red side of London started the season poorly. With three defeats in a row as both Brentford, Manchester City and Chelsea picked three points each against Gunners.
But the Spaniard ensured they bounced back almost immediately. And that prompted the former Pep Guardiola's number two to make some serious team changes. Dropping Leno to the bench for the 22 year old Aaron Ramsdale.
Brought in a center back pairing of Ben White and Gabriel. With right back Kieran and a new left back the Japanese International Tomiyasu. As well as a midfield pair of Thomas Partey and Xhaka. Attacking trio of Saka, Rowe and Aubameyang supported by Martin Odegaard.
And the team managed to pick good results against Norwich and Burnley respectively. Keeping two clean sheets in a row but unfortunately against Tottenham. The team conceded from Son, consolation goal as Arteta's men won 3-1.
These has seen Arteta's efforts noticed. And he has been nominated for September Manager of the month award as per the SunSport. He's set to battle it out against Pep Guardiola, Dean Smith, Graham Potter and Klopp for the accolade.
