We must stick together, says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

We must stick together, says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger urged the London club to remain united and insisted the side's form would improve. The Gunners lost 2-0 against Swansea and are 10th in the Premier League - their worst start to a season since Wenger took over 16 years ago. Arsenal struggles Arsenal have won just three of their last 10 Premier League home games (W3 D4 L3) This is Arsenal's worst start to a Premier League season under Arsene Wenger (21 points after 15 matches) "We are in this job to turn things around, and I am confident we will [because of] the quality of the players and the spirit we have," said Wenger. "I believe it is a good chance to stick together and show we're a strong club." Swansea won Saturday's game at the Emirates courtesy of two late Michu goals and Arsenal were booed off the pitch at the end. "The quality of our game was not there," added Wenger, whose team have now picked up just six points from the last 18 available. "It was a bit frustrating because we lacked a bit of decisiveness and creativity. Swansea were more creative, more sharp. It is very frustrating, but it is the truth." Arsenal are 15 points behind league leaders Manchester United, although they do remain in touching distance of the positions that would secure them a place in next season's Champions League, trailing fourth-placed Tottenham by five points. "I am not so much worried about [league] places," said the 63-year-old. "But I believe what is important is we get the quality of our game back. Then the places change." And when asked about his future, he added: "You make your assessment at the end of the season, as I said many times." There were protests by the Black Scarf Movement, a section of Arsenal fans unhappy at the way the club is being run, around the stadium before kick-off but Wenger refused to get drawn into that debate. "It is more down to shareholders and that is not my job," said the Gunners boss. "It's difficult to answer that straight away after a game like that, but I believe the support from the board is there to spend the money if we find the players."
