Arsenal vice-skipper Mikel Arteta insists that the club's new signings will come good this season.

Arsenal vice-skipper Mikel Arteta has claimed that the club need to allow time for their new signings to integrate into the team.

The Gunners have lost Robin van Persie and Alex Song this summer, but the Spaniard has insisted that their new signings "can make the difference".

"It will take a while because there have been some new players coming in and we are building a new team," Arteta told the club's website.

"We have lost some important players too, so we will need some time. We know that our new players can make the difference as well. We will have to give them a chance to settle into a new place."

Arsenal opened their Premier League season with a 0-0 draw against Sunderland on Saturday.
