Mikel Arteta commented on the next defeat of his team in the Premier League. According to the coach, the first goal changed everything. Otherwise, Arsenal had the initiative, in control of the situation. Again there was not enough implementation.
We responded well, were on top of the game and created chances. There was not enough quality to score a goal.
Something was wrong with us. We didn’t do the necessary things in the first ten minutes. Raheem Sterling can’t head to you. You cannot concede such goals. This is a definite tactical moment. We were ready for it, but did not fulfill it.
We had our moment and confidence. We had a good possession of the ball. We found the right places, but in the last third we chose the wrong situations for the programs. We tried to exploit some of their weaknesses. They don’t have that many!
Now we have the final on Thursday. We want to continue to compete in the Europa League. We need to sleep, eat and we won’t have much time for training, ” said Arteta.
