The Gunners are in the midst of a pre-Christmas slump - losing at Olympiakos in the Champions League and at home to Swansea in the preceding Premier League clash.

Without a win in four, Arsene Wenger finds himself under renewed pressure at the head of affairs - but France star Sagna maintains that the players need to help out by becoming more ruthless.

"We just need to be wiser. We have had the opportunity to win games, and for some reason we don't," Sagna told Arsenal Player.

"We need to work on it. We need to stay focused on the pitch and we need to work harder during training sessions. If we do that everything will be fine. I don't worry about it.

"Everyone is good in the Premier League. Everyone can beat everyone. The top teams are the most consistent ones.

"They just go game by game and want to take points. We have to step up and show the opposition who is on top. We've made some mistakes in the past and now we want to impose ourselves on our season."

Arsenal travel to The Hawthorns to face this season's surprise package West Brom on Saturday, and will start the game five points and five places below their hosts.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
