Arteta: “We’re tired. There was a lack of freshness in the final third of the pitch “

The head coach explained why Arsenal did not beat Crystal Palace.

Mikel Arteta summarized the London derby. The match was boring and ended with no goals. The coach thinks that fatigue affected the game. The footballers of his team cannot cope with a grueling schedule.

“We lacked freshness and quality in the final third. There were many times when we delivered the ball there, but there was no great chance.

I wanted to win today so that we can score a few goals, but the team is tired. At some point, we gave up the ball. I can’t blame the players for the bad mood.

Tierney may have been injured. He will have an MRI tomorrow.

Roy Hodgson has done this throughout his career. It was in this style that they defeated many giants.

We have created many situations against the low block. We lacked the final quality. Probably not done enough to win the match. We pay the price for fatigue. Many players lack freshness. ” explained the coach.


Arsenal are stuck in the middle of the table. The team is ranked eleventh.
