Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has admitted that the Gunners must improve after drawing 0-0 with Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.
The Gunners spurned a couple of opportunities to win the tie but were under the cosh for large portions of the game, with Ramsdale being called into action on a number of occasions.
The 23-year-old claimed his third clean sheet from four Premier League appearances on the day, but he has admitted that the performance and result was disappointing overall.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Ramsdale said: "Personally and collectively the performance needs to be better especially with where we want to get to. It's another point and been a good month so we keep looking up now.
"It was a difficult game, they made it hard and we have to give credit to them. We have got to get around that, we have to show more composure and intensity on the ball and make it harder for them.
"We have to do it on the training pitch, we tweaked a few things, it was a difficult game but a point it is a point. It is three clean sheets out of four games, it's not all doom and gloom.
"We have had a tough start, and no one is hiding from that. We have turned the corner with four good results, you can see a structure of a team and one that is gelling on the pitch."
Arsenal have risen to ninth in the table after taking 10 points from their last four Premier League games, while Ramsdale now prepares to link up with the England squad for October's clashes with Andorra and Hungary.
