Despite the heavy criticism that has been weighed in on Arsenal and Mikel Arteta so far this season, there are still some people who believe that the Gunners can still come good and have a turnaround this season. One of those who still have faith in Arteta and Arsenal is the club's former manager Arsene Wenger.

The former Gunners boss has backed his former employers and their current manager in the wake of their worst-ever start to a Premier League season, insisting that they have only played three games so far this campaign and that they still have a long time to recover and end the season on a high even though a lot of people believe otherwise.

Arsenal played against Premier League new boys Brentford and fell to a shocking 2-0 defeat at the hands of the newly-promoted side. Their second game of the season saw them lock horns with their bitter north London rivals Chelsea and it was another defeat for them. Chelsea were the more dominant side in what was a less competitive derby that saw the Blues leave the Emirates Stadium with all three points after beating their rivals 2-0 thanks to goals from debutant Romelu Lukaku and England international right-back Reece James.

As if that was not enough, their next game was against current Premier League champions Manchester City. The Cityzens ran riot at the Etihad Stadium and hammered Arsenal 5-0 in what was a humiliating defeat for Arteta and his men. The 5-0 defeat triggered the anger of Arsenal fans and a lot of them were calling for the manager Arteta to be sacked but he is still the current manager.
According to Wenger, Arsenal have played two of their opening three games against the league's title contenders and now have time to recover to save their season, something he believes that they can still do.
