Arsene Wenger has expressed his thoughts on the current situation which a couple of his new signings are going through at the club.

The Gunners are enduring one of their worst seasons under the management of Arsene Wenger as they sit in sixth place in the table, well behind top four rivals Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Thursday night saw Arsenal lose their third game in a row in all competitions, a 3-0 humiliation at home to Manchester City whom they lost to on Sunday night in the final of the Carabao Cup.

Following the recent disappointing results in all competitions, fans and pundits have questioned the performances of new additions Henrikh Mkytaryan and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.

The duo looked impressive on their home debut against Everton as Arsenal won 5-1 but their form has been erratic ever since.

And when asked about the concerning situation of his new signings, Wenger admitted they are not adapting as quickly as many expected.

“They need some time to adapt and things change quickly in sport.” the Arsenal manager said

“That’s part of modern sport as well. You have to accept that. Every game you lose nowadays means you’re under big pressure.

“These are players who have just joined us and I’m sure they’ll do well.”
