Arsenal star Pablo Mari has opened up over the dressing room mood as the club come through a tough period.
There was also a message for Mikel Arteta, who is coming under serious pressure.
The Gunners had been regraded as potential dark horses prior to the season starting.
After winning the FA Cup and Community Shield, they strengthened the squad with signings such as Thomas Partey, Gabriel Magalhaes and Willian.
But that has not transpired, with the north London outfit sitting 15th in the Premier League.
They have scored just 10 times – only the relegation zone dwellers West Brom, Burnley and Sheffield United have netted less.
The latest result saw Tottenham easily swat them aside in a derby with their closest rivals in a 2-0 loss.
That has seen the pressure ramp up on Arteta, but Mari has an encouraging message for the Spaniard.
“The first thing is that I think that quick manager changes are not the right thing to do,” said Mari.

“About Mikel, I think the idea of the club has changed.
“The attitude, the mentality has changed.
“I go with Mikel until the end of the world. He just needs time.
“Soccer is not always rosy. I am happy because, despite the situation, we are united.
“In the dressing room, we give 100 per cent in every game, in every training session, to reverse this situation.
“But I think that within all this, football is streaks and I believe a lot in this kind of thing.
“We are in that dynamic right now, no matter how hard you try, football is not giving you everything that you give it. It is a matter of changing it.”
