Legendary Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has said the club’s current boss, Mikel Arteta, has a “quality” squad.
Wenger, however, expressed sympathy over the Gunners’ difficult start to the new season.
Arsenal faced both the reigning European and Premier League champions in two of their first three fixtures.
Before Saturday’s narrow 1-0 win against Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium, Arteta’s side endured the club’s lowest point.
The north London club went into the international break with a record of three games played, with zero points, zero goals scored and nine goals conceded.
However, the victory over the Canaries lifted the Gunners off of the foot of the table and into 16th.
Wenger told beIN Sport: “First of all, I like to usually say what I think – I believe in this situation I am first an Arsenal fan, after that of course when I talk about Arsenal it is a very sensitive subject and at the moment the timing is maybe not the best to talk.
“I must say, I find the squad quite of quality, I’m not pessimistic because I feel they had two difficult games out of the first three.”
