“They have been working together for a few years and they have developed the team in their own way, so I hope they will be higher.”
Arsenal have dropped into the bottom half of the Premier League table after defeats to Aston Villa and Wolves, with the north London club managing just two wins in their previous eight matches.
Arteta has not been impressed by the recent sloppy performances and is urging his squad to improve ahead of a tricky fixture against Leeds.
“We are lacking ruthlessness at the moment because we gave a goal and we gave another two big chances away against Villa,” Arteta told Sky Sports.
“We gave the game away against Wolves. We had the chance to put the game to bed and even when you make a mistake you have to try and correct it and be ruthless in the opponent’s box, and we didn’t do that either.
“So then you’re not going to win football matches.
“Leeds are a really brave, dynamic and energetic team that goes for three points all the time – constantly attacking, constantly a threat, constantly pressing.
“First you have to match and improve their energy levels, and then you have to play your game and try to take it where we want and not where they want. If you do that you have a good chance to win.”
