Arsenal boss Arteta believes the winter break to Dubai will have a positive impact on his team.

Arsenal will fly out to Dubai on Thursday for a four-day training camp.


Mikel Arteta reckons Arsenal's winter break to Dubai will help rekindle the spark in his squad after a "tough" few months.


Arsenal will fly out to Dubai on Thursday for a four-day training camp as they do not play again until February 16 when they host Newcastle United at the Emirates.


The Gunners played out a goalless draw with Burnley over the weekend as they extended their unbeaten run to seven games in all competitions, and they are also unbeaten in seven successive Premier League away matches.


"It's good to go away," Arteta told Arsenal Player after the 0-0 draw at Turf Moor on Sunday. "The players have been through a lot.



"The last two or three months have been tough for them so I want to give them a few days off. Then we're going to go to Dubai, start working and focus on Newcastle.


"We have to stay positive. It's very tough to come [to Burnley] and when the game develops like this, to control it is hard. I wanted to win so badly and I'm disappointed.


"I'm more disappointed with the unnecessary balls we have given away and put ourselves in trouble with. They press high and they are good at that but in many phases of the game, we could have done better.


"When we did better, we generated the chances we wanted."
