Arsenal achieved a great victory over Manchester United. Mikel Arteta's team showed once again that they are not at the top without a reason. They looked great on the pitch, and a goal in the 90th minute decided everything. Arteta is happy for his team that showed the right mentality.
"Emotional, a lot of passion, a lot of quality. It doesn't get much better than that,” Arteta told Sky Sports.
“After the derby [against Tottenham], to come here against this team and play the way we played. The second half especially, the performance was incredible.
To win it in that way makes it even better.
We were composed and determined at the same time. We managed the moments in the game. We never panicked. We always believed that we could win it."
Arsenal had the initiative, especially in the second half.
However, they could not reach the goal until the very end. “We showed the right composure in the box a lot of times, but the ball didn't go in. Thankfully at the end it did."
Mikel Arteta on his team
The Spanish expert believes that his team still has room for improvement.
"It's great and we deserve to be where we are because of how we're playing. But there are a lot of things that we can do much better,” Arteta said. The pressure from the opposing team is what they expected, but they handled it well.
“We've been talking about pressure for the last 12 or 13 games. Premier League teams will always make it difficult and we have to prepare for that." Oleksandr Zinchenko was also one of the best. "I love this winning, you know? The winning feeling in the last minute, the last second.
It’s something you cannot describe,” Zinchenko said for BBC Sport.
"Today was unbelievable. I need to watch it again before I go to bed because these are the magic moments."
