Arsenal signed five players, including Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, but failed in their late bid to sign Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa, who reportedly rejected three bids for the Brazilian midfielder.

The London club had a total of 37 players leave, including high-profile players such as Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe.

“We still had a lot of things to do with the squad. Look at the departures compared to what we’ve recruited. The club has done a phenomenal job of bringing in players with the profiles we wanted,” Arteta told reporters on Friday.

“Unfortunately in the last 72 hours Thomas and Mo were injured and we had to react to the market. We tried and at the end of the day we have to bring in the players that we feel are right, but we didn’t manage to do that.”

Arsenal are the only team with a 100% winning record this season after five games and Arteta said the table-toppers were in good spirits ahead of Sunday’s trip to fifth-placed Manchester United.

“We have won away from home before, we have to do it again and believe that we are able to go there, play our way and win the game. I don’t think it’s a problem,” said the Spaniard.

“The feeling and energy around the club (is good), the way the team plays and performs, the icing on the cake is winning football matches. We have to keep doing that, keep doing simple things right and keep playing well.”

Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale (thigh) and midfielder Martin Odegaard (foot) will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s game, while Zinchenko is unlikely to feature after missing training.

Partey is expected to be out for “weeks” while Elneny will be out for “months” after both suffered thigh injuries.
