Mikel Arteta says that he should not be viewed as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas.

Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has warned that he should not be viewed as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas.

The former Rangers player joined Arsenal in a £10m deadline day move from Everton after Fabregas's £40m switch to Barcelona.

"I am not here to replace Cesc and I would be wrong to try that," Arteta said. "Cesc was the best player at Arsenal. I have no aim to become that. My target is simply to try to reach my highest level as a player and to help the team.

"Cesc was at Arsenal for seven years. I have been here for a few weeks. If I try to be equal to or better than him, I would be confusing myself.

"We're different personalities with a different style. I must find my own way to do well for Arsenal."

Arsenal are currently 15th in the Premier League table, with seven points from seven games.
