Mikel Arteta pinpoint the difference between Arsenal’s tough start last season and their bright start this season, as he expect tough test against Fulham in their fourth Premier League match.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has had his say on the positive start of the season in the Premier League.

The Gunners are leading the premier league table following three wins on three games this season.

Last season Arsenal suffered three defeats in three in the Premier League but it is a different case this season.

Arsenal will seek to extend their victory to four when they play Fulham in the Premier League tomorrow.

Speaking with the media about their bright start to the season and the key difference from last season to now Mikel Arteta said: “The players that we have available now, and the players that we had available at that time. We are in a different moment, a year has gone by.

“The same players that were playing a year ago, I can show some examples – especially with our development players – and where they are today is a completely different scenario. We’ve got good momentum, good energy around the place, and good confidence, so let’s keep going.”

Arsenal will host newly promoted side Fulham at the Emirate stadium tomorrow a side that are yet to be defeated in the league.

Arteta believes that the game will be a tough test for them rating the fellow London team with the tough games they have played in the Premier league.

“A really tough match” Arteta said when asked what to expect from Fulham game. They’ve been on an incredible run – last year in the Championship they did extremely well, and they haven’t lost a game yet in the Premier League and they’ve played against three very difficult opponents, so credit to them. I think it will be a difficult game.”

One of Fulham danger man Aleksandar Mitrovic has been on the media following his bright games in the Premier League and Arteta has his say on the striker.

“As you could see last season when he scored 43 goals in the league, and he’s already scored three goals this season, so in terms of the efficiency that he has in these areas, he’s one of the main threats of Fulham.”
