Arteta: “We didn’t want to come and lose, but such a score is a good result”

The head coach of Arsenal is glad to have stayed in the game.

Mikel Arteta explained that before the match with Villarreal (1: 2) he would not agree to defeat. At the same time, given the circumstances, you shouldn’t be upset. Arsenal were two goals behind and sent off.

“We didn’t want to come here and lose. At the same time, given the development of the game, we must accept the result. If you are losing, then this is probably the best possible defeat.

Two different halves. We started to be ourselves. In the first half, there were many moments when this never happened.

We didn’t have enough control. There were no threats to the goal from the penalty area, in the second half everything changed significantly.

We are already used to Saka’s good performance this season, but the rest of us need to do more. You can’t rely on him all the time. Leno was also very good. Saved us when we were losing with a score of 0: 2 “, – summed up the coach.
