Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes midfielder Mikel Arteta has settled effortlessly into the team following his switch from Everton.

The 29-year-old arrived in North London on deadline day and has provided some much needed balance in the middle of midfield this season. Wenger told the BBC, ‘He is an important player for our team’.

‘He is really a player between Song and Ramsey or Rosicky and that gives us continuity’.
