The Gunners have recorded their worst season’s start since 1981-82 as they sit in 15th position with 13 points from their opening 11 games, with just one win in their last seven Premier League games.

“It is frustrating,” Holding said of the Gunners’ poor start. “It is a record that you don’t want to be a part of. We are frustrated as players and we are letting the fans down. We need to change that, win some games and put that to bed.”

Arsenal had nearly 70 per cent of game’s possession but Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was rarely tested as the visitors drew another blank.

Holding knows the problem lies in the final touch of his teammates.

“Finding the back of the net just seems to be a problem at the moment, but hopefully there is going to be a bit of luck to change that,” the defender said. “Hopefully the goals will start to come.

“They took their chances and that’s the story of the game. No matter how many crosses we put in, if we don’t get on the end of it, and put it in the back of the net, it is pointless at the end of the day.

“We are getting the chances, it is just putting them away. Maybe the first goal we get will just be a bit of a deflection or a trickle into the net and bit of luck on our side.

“Then hopefully the confidence will be there to carry on and score some more goals. But we just need that little bit of luck to put one in the back of the net.

“We have just got to, in training, keep creating chances and taking them – and be confident. We have got to give the strikers some confidence to put the ball in the back of the net and hopefully we can a get goals at the weekend.”
