Arteta: “The game was under the control of Arsenal. This is a very strong contender “

The head coach of Londoners reminded about Slavia’s capabilities.

Mikel Arteta believes that Arsenal have traditionally dominated the field. The coach traditionally praised the players for total control. Lack of luck and implementation.

“The game was under our control. We scored a goal, we could have scored more, but missed a few big chances. We played two or three goals incorrectly, allowed them to earn a corner. They sent a lot of people there. This happens and changes the feeling after the game.

We knew we had the ability to make a difference with five substitutions. It was the right moment. The replacements have had a big impact.
It’s tough because Slavia is a very good opponent. They have already gone through several big teams. It’s hard to play with them. It was necessary to solve many convenient situations one-to-one. When that doesn’t work, it’s hard to play.

We got an effective high pressing. We monitored their transitional phases. We need to win the next match. We have to score. The team has done it before in a similar situation, “- concluded the coach.


In the Premier League, the team lost the chances of getting into the Champions League.
