Mikel Arteta reckons his players could be in for a huge scrap to reverse their dip following their 2-1 loss to Everton.
A league cup quarter-final against Man City is up next for Arsenal. The team will then face a daunting Boxing Day clash with Chelsea.
Arteta told Sky Sports: “We’re up against a big fight but you can see how they’re trying and their spirit.
“Without conceding much we lost the game. We reacted well to the goal and dominated the game, created enough chances. We hit the bar, I think luck is not on our side.
“The boys are fighting, upset, together.”
