Arsenal missed the chance to be tied with Tottenham after John Fleck made a late equalizer for Sheffield United in the 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

Defeat in west London would leave the Gunners 13 points adrift of Chelsea, who now occupy fourth spot in the Premier League table.

The 1-1 draw leaves Arsenal 10th in the Premier League and with just one win from their last seven games. "We have a lot of issues at the back, the fact that Calum got the big injury is modifying our plans", Arteta told reporters on Friday."It is what we have, the situation, it can happen between December and January, it is very common".

"I think his picture now is very clear, what he wants, what we want from him and I trust him".

Liverpool were perhaps the biggest gainers from this weekend's Premier League action, with their 2-0 win over Man United on Sunday, January 19, stretching their lead atop to a massive 16 points.

Now I can see that he really wants it and I think he has the potential to do whatever he wants.

"We have to try to make a difference when we score first, we need to have the ambition still to score the second and the third goal, where we had the opportunities to do so".

But, unlike the jeering and negativity which greeted the final whistle during the majority of Emery's last games at the helm, Arteta praised Arsenal's supporters for sticking with the team against the Blades.

The Bosnian worldwide has been tipped for a move away from the Emirates this summer so Arsenal are in need of a new left-back and Kurzawa has been strongly linked with a move to north London recently.

The French side are open to offloading the defender during the winter transfer window and the Gunners have since held talks over a possible deal this month.

"Just because you have 11 or 18 individually good players does not mean it is going to work. I put him in to play and I trust him because he wants it and I think he can deliver".
