Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta had sympathy with the unhappy Gunners fans following their 2-0 defeat to Swansea.
The north Londoners fell 15 points behind leaders Manchester United and the cup competitions look to be their best chance for success this season.
“The fans have been outstanding so far and we can’t ask them to be behind us if we don’t give them back what they deserve,” Arteta told the Arsenal website.
“It is up to us. We will get criticised if we don’t win. It is part of our jobs. The main thing is that everyone gives 100 per cent now.”
