‘Things happen for a reason’ – Arteta claims there is a reason for Arsenal’s poor performances


Ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League meeting with Burnley this Saturday, manager Mikel Arteta claims Arsenal’s poor start to the season might have happened for a reason.

The Gunners began the new Premier League season poorly – and were bottom of the table after losing their first three games.

However, they snapped that losing streak with a 1–0 win over Norwich last week and Arteta already feels optimistic about the future, adding that he can see ‘bright lights’.

“Things happen for a reason and maybe what is happening had to happen and [maybe] it’s going to be really good for the club and really good for myself and everybody experiencing that situation,” Arteta told a press conference on Thursday.

“I can really see the light,” he said. “I’m telling you I’m very positive most of the time. I’ve seen the light and I can see bright lights.

“There can be bumps in the road within that light, but I can see a lot of light.”

The Gunners will take on Burnley at the Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday, where they’ll be seeking maximum points.
