Arsenal have climbed to eighth place in the Premier League and will host league leaders Manchester United at the Emirates on Saturday.

Arteta admitted that he was happy with his side's performance against Southampton, but he insisted that they have to "improve" for their upcoming match.

"I think we were good from the start. We conceded a goal from a corner but responded straight away," he said.

"We were good on the ball. We got out of trouble and made some big chances. Our pressing was brilliant. We were good in the break. It was a strong performance.

"It is tough to win here. They are strong and have been in form. It showed a lot of intelligence and resilience from the team in the way they managed the game.

"We still have a lot to do. We have to improve, be humble and train good for the next game."
