That has led to calls for him to replace Alexandre Lacazette through the middle, but hinted he will refuse to change the shape of his team, on the back of one bad run.
“A team function is a collective thing that we have to do more,” Arteta said after the Villa defeat.
“We certainly are getting in some situations, but the end product is something we have to improve and about the position and his movement and where we can find him, of course we can talk about is this the right or wrong place for him, but when things were working and he was scoring that debate wasn’t there.”
