    OVER IT

    Marc Overmars has shot down talk of him potentially replacing Edu as Arsenal's technical director.

    He told Ajax TV: "As I’ve said before a number of times we’re really enjoying ourselves.

    "I’m not getting any younger. I’ve been offered the opportunity to go elsewhere too.

    "That’s what happens and it’s always good to consider a move. But then I just think about how well things are going here.

    "If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. If your old shoes are still comfy, keep wearing them."

    LOK AND LOAD

    New Arsenal star Albert Sambi Lokonga has suffered a potential injury blow on Belgium duty.

    Roberto Martinez told Walfoot: "Regarding Sambi, it is not a sporting choice.

    “So we decided not to take any risk given the complicated conditions. It was not a sporadic decision on my part.”

    "At Arsenal the problem isn’t with the manager, the problem is all in the changing room from what I’m hearing.

    "There is a lot of disharmony in the changing room and that’s something which is very difficult for a manager.

    "Even though it might be the players fault, we always know what happens when things goes wrong, and it’s always the manager who carries the can."

    S-MART MOVE

    The Aston Villa and Argentina star told El Pais: "Arsenal came to look for me and [then-manager] Pepe Santoro told me that the train only passes once in a lifetime.

    "My family and my agents thought the same. So, the decision was more for [family] than anything else.

    "I didn’t want to go. I did not regret it, but I wanted to play in Independiente.

    "We lacked a little financially. I did it more for that than for sports."

    BRING ARSENE BACK!

    Mikael Silvestre has revealed he believes Arsenal would benefit from Arsene Wenger returning to the club in a 'father figure role.'

    The former Arsenal man told bettingexpert.com: “I think that could be beneficial [Wenger returning],

    “Especially right now when the board is rocky, you need a captain, and not somebody active on a daily basis, but a father figure and an example like him at this moment in time, right now it would be a good thing. 

    “But of course Mikel Arteta deserves time.  

    “He needs the time and he deserves it because he's won a trophy with the club. Change for change [sake] doesn't make sense. 

    “He was given the opportunity to sign the players he wanted and now he needs to be given the time to work with these guys and produce good football that Arsenal have been doing over the years.”

    SEAMAN SPEAKS

    Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman thinks Gunners fans could 'turn' against the club if Norwich come away from the Emirates with three points on Saturday.

    Speaking on talkSPORT, three-time Premier League winner Seaman admitted he 'fears the worst' for the weekend.

    He said: "They’ve got to turn up this weekend, it’s a massive game and I fear the worst if we get beat, because the fans will turn.

    "They’re not happy with two seasons of finishing eighth, it’s nowhere near good enough.

    "We’re at that point now where the board have chucked some money at the team and the squad.

    "They’ve put their money where their mouth is and it’s time for the players to do the same."

    GIFT OF THE GAB

    Ex-professional Gabby Agbonlahor is predicting 'absolute carnage' if Arsenal are beaten by Norwich at the Emirates on Saturday.

    A loss would be a fourth successive Premier League defeat, against a team who are also yet to win this season.

    And the former Aston Villa man told talkSPORT: “If they lose against Norwich I think the fans will block the players’ car park.

    “I think it will be absolute carnage.

    “They’re a laughing stock. You go on social media and everyone wants Arsenal to lose, opposition fans want to laugh at Arsenal.

    “Arsenal fans have had enough, I’ve got friends who are Arsenal fans… they’ve had enough.”

    STAT ATTACK

    Only once in their history have Arsenal lost each of their first four league games to a season.

    That was in the 1923-24 top-flight campaign.

    And the Gunners have never failed to score in any of their opening four league games before.

    A loss against Norwich would give Mikel Arteta both of those unwanted records.

    Eeek.

    NOT BOTHERED

    Former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson doesn't think Spurs fans will mind if Serge Aurier crosses North London to sign for Arsenal.

    The 28-year-old free agent has been linked with a move to Arsenal after leaving Spurs on deadline day after he and the club agreed to terminate his contract.

    And Robinson told Football Insider "I don’t think Serge Aurier spent long enough or did well enough at Spurs to build up a rapport with the fans”

    "If I’m honest, I don’t think they would not be too worried about him moving across north London.

    "His defending is questionable at times and we saw that too often at Spurs.

    "And for that reason a lot of fans would probably send him over there with their best wishes. Some would probably even be happy if he went there.

    “I cannot see him being a player who comes back and haunts Spurs in the future."

    MARC MY WORDS

    Real Betis centre-back Marc Bartra has revealed Hector Bellerin had already told him about his love for Betis.

    The Spanish pair met when they were just ten-years-old at Barcelona's La Masia academy.

    And Bartra told Radio Marca: “We have stayed in touch and before he came [to Real Betis] I spoke with him.

    “I knew something, I have a very good relationship with him.

    “In previous years he had already told me [about his affection for Real Betis].

    “He is Betis, his family is, and he was excited and eager [to come], you can see in these first training sessions that he wants to do important things with Betis.“

    IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

    Former Premier League player Matt Le Tissier claims there is ‘disharmony in the changing room’ at the Emirates.

    He has revealed that the problem at the club is not anything to do with manager Mikel Arteta.

    Le Tissier told the Where’s Jeff podcast: “I can tell you from a contact inside the Arsenal camp.

    “At Arsenal the problem isn’t with the manager, the problem is all in the changing room from what I’m hearing.

    “There is a lot of disharmony in the changing room and that’s something which is very difficult for a manager.

    “Even though it might be the players fault, we always know what happens when things goes wrong, and it’s always the manager who carries the can.”

    HEC OF A MOVE

    Hector Bellerin has commented on the 'sentiment' of football, insisting his move to Real Betis was not money motivated as his father is a Betis fan.

    "Two weeks before the end of the market it seemed complicated, but it became a reality.

    "Football is not just money, sentiment is very important"

    "For me, having the opportunity to be here is where I want to be. I face the challenge with great enthusiasm and football does not only depend on the player. I will live from day to day.

    "It is a feeling that my father has instilled since I was little. As a child I was a bit of a turncoat, but he forced me to wear the Betis shirt.

    "Being able to make my father happy with a dream that is his, and fulfilling it for him makes me very excited."

    THE BELL TOLLED

    Mikel Arteta has revealed Hector Bellerin left Arsenal after 239 games at the club because 'he needed a new challenge' elsewhere.

    The 26-year-old has been with Arsenal for the last ten years but joined Spanish side Real Betis on a loan deal until the end of the season.

    And Arteta said: “It’s been a long time [at Arsenal], he’s been a really important part of everything that happened at the club in the last 10 years. 

    “He’s an exceptional player and an incredible person. He’ll be missed. To find someone like Hector is not easy. He’s been raised here with us and is loved by everybody at the football club. 

    “I have to say goodbye with sadness but at the same time I had to understand his position.

    “He needed a new challenge, he’s been needing a new challenge for a while, so after discussing for a long time, we decided to let him go. We decided it was the right thing for him.”

    HEY BIG SPENDERS

    Arsenal's exploits during the summer transfer window meant the Gunners were the highest net spenders in the Premier League.

    Mikel Arteta is yet to reap any reward from his signings though.

    The Gunners have lost all three of their Premier League games so far this season.

    'EVERYBODY IS DISAPPOINTED'

    Mikel Arteta has promised his squad are fully focused on changing their fortunes after three defeats in a row to start the Premier League season.

    In his pre-match press conference, Arteta said: "It's nowhere near where we want to be.

    "That's for sure. I think it needs a little bit or perspective of what happened.

    "Everybody is disappointed and we are no different.

    "The fans are disappointed and everybody related to the club should be disappointed, but we are so determined and willing to change it as quickly as possible, and we are on it."

    ALTERNATIVE XI

    Or alternatively Mikel Arteta could opt for three centre-backs.

    That would involve employing the versatile Tomiyasu in the heart of defence, rather than right-back.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    LIKELY LINE-UP

    Here's a look at how Mikel Arteta could line-up his side on Saturday.

    Albert Sambi Lokonga picked up a slight knock while on international duty for Belgium, but he is expected to be fit for the weekend's clash.

    Takehiro Tomiyasu could make his Arsenal debut, depending on whether a work permit is granted in time for the deadline day signing.

    Thomas Partey, Gabriel and Ben White are expected to return to action after a spell on the sidelines.

    JACK THE LAD

    Free agent Jack Wilshere is free to train with the Gunners at their London Colney base, according to Mikel Arteta.

    The 29-year-old played 197 times for Arsenal but is without a club after leaving Bournemouth at the end of last season.

    Wilshere has been training with Serie B side Como recently, but he could return to North London in order to keep his fitness levels up.

    Arteta said: "He is someone that I know who I shared the dressing room with, who is so loved around the club with every person here and our doors are always open."

  • Giacomo Pisa

    MORE FROM MIKEL

    The Arsenal squad are being forced to gel in a short space of time in order to try and improve results on the pitch.

    Mikel Arteta said: "We have a completely different squad. It's unheard of.

    "Now we have to make it work, we have to glide it together, build relationships, chemistry and understanding.

    "We have to do that really quickly."
