Arteta was speaking after the FA Cup victory over Oxford United away from the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday, January 10th, 2023. He said, the team just has one striker ( Eddie Nketiah) and he must try to maximize the strength of his squad until Gabriel Jesus returns.

The problem is that we have only one striker and to cope for that many months until Gabriel Jesus is back isn’t easy. We have to get the most out of the players that we have at the moment. If we can have some reinforcements, great.

Jesus has been without the Gunners since the return of the Premier League after picking up an injury during the World Cup with Brazil.

Arsenal are flying high across all competition, they top the English Premier League and are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup. However, the true test for Arteta and his men comes up in the next five games, when they face, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Brentford, and Everton.
