Under-pressure Arsenal boss Arteta says last two weeks have been his "best"

It has been a difficult start to the season for Arsenal, who claimed their first victory of the season at the weekend.

But Mikel Arteta has insisted that it has been the best two weeks of his coaching career.

Losses to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City had left the Gunners rooted to the bottom of the Premier League over the international break.

They had failed to even score a goal but that changed on Saturday when Arsenal took on Norwich at the Emirates.

Daniel Farke's men were downed by a scruffy effort from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that bobbled out to the striker off Nicolas Pepe's tumbling body.

But Arteta did not care as Arsenal finally got their first points on the board while insisting he has had the best two weeks in his coaching career despite the hardships.

He said: "I must say, it’s probably been the best 10 to 15 days I’ve ever had since I’ve been in football.

"I’m not saying they were the easiest, but probably the best.

"You have to find a purpose for why you do what you do and why you’ve made the decision to be a football player or a coach.

"It’s all made sense in the last week or so. It’s about the relationship we have built.

"It’s about the level of trust that everybody at the club has. It’s about connections and emotionally how players react, how everybody in the team – and I’m talking about every department at the club – supports and tries to improve and be positive around the situation.

"You have to win football matches but, for me, that’s an absolute joy to watch, how everybody has been behaving around the context that we had around us.
