Sagna urges Arsenal team-mates to improve defending

Bacary Sagna is confident ahead of the new campaign, insisting that 'everyone is ready' at Arsenal to end their trophy drought. The right-back did, however, urge his team-mates to improve on their defending after they conceded two late goals in Sunday's 3-2 win over Celtic.

"Everyone is ready and personally I cannot wait to play because I know we have a very good team with quality young players who play good football," said Sagna.

"The job is done, but now we just need to work because we had some bad points as well.

"We need to look forward, work on what we have to and just stay focused.

"We need to be more consistent because we were leading 3-0 and we only won 3-2.

"If you remember what happened last year against Wigan, we need to keep playing.

"Maybe we stopped playing because we thought the game was too easy, but that is football now.

"We let Celtic back in because we stopped playing, so we must stay focused. We need to talk more on the pitch and stay together."
