Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has told his Manchester United counterpart, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, that the only way to ease pressure on himself and avoid the sack is to get results fast.
According to reports, senior officials at the club seriously considered replacing the 48-year-old, but ultimately decided to give him more time.
United have failed to win any of their last four Premier League fixtures and Solskjaer knows only a win over Tottenham will help take off some of the pressure.
Arteta knows all about changing the narrative.
Arsenal began the season by losing three straight games, conceding nine times, and failing to score in the process.
But since then, Arteta has guided Arsenal to six games unbeaten in the Premier League.
“It’s always about the results. We all know that and the rest it doesn’t really matter.
“When you are having difficulty getting results it’s the same for everybody. It’s not a nice moment for those who are going through that,” Arteta said during his pre-match press conference on Friday.
