Arsenal won against Leicester 0-1. This is a very important victory for them in the fight for the title. Mikel Arteta believes that his team could have done more in this match. “I think for the amount of time that we dominated the ball, possession, and territory, the amount of situations that we created in the final third, we should have created much more and scored more goals,” Arteta said, as quoted by eurosport.
What makes him especially happy is the defensive game of his team. “When you don’t, then you have to be exceptional in your defensive work. I think we conceded one chance, one shot off target, only so I think defensively the team was outstanding.
Great, because it’s a really difficult place to come here and win. We’ve done it and it’s a huge win. Obviously, we want to start fast [in the second half] and start to get in their toes again. It was a really good moment to give us the advantage”.
Mike Arteta on the next games
The Spaniard spoke about Leonard Trossard's disallowed goal. He did not want to go into details. Arteta is happy considering that his team showed what is expected of them. Their focus is already on the next matches.
They know how difficult it will be in every match. “I don’t know, I haven’t seen the replay.
The decision is made, what can we do? It’s a shame because he’s put it in the top bin and it was a great finish but we managed to still recover, not get too upset, and win the game”.
We think about the next game, the Premier League is so tough, next we have Everton, we suffered already in Liverpool with what they did to us, we’re going to have to prepare really well, play well and be really dominant in the game to earn the right to win”.
