Arteta happy with win and wants happy Arsenal fans at Tottenham clash

After our awful start to the season, Arsenal now have three wins and 3 clean sheets in a row, and the 50,000 fans that turned up at the Emirates last night went home very happy in the end.

As Arteta said after the 3-0 win: “The approach is to perform and win every single match – that has to be the aim of this football club. To have 50,000 fans in the Carabao Cup on a Wednesday night is pretty special and it doesn’t happen in many places. The players notice that and obviously that raises the level of demands. They made the night more special.”

Arteta made an amazing ten changes to the starting line-up last night, with Partey the only one that started both games, but our boys still had more than enough firepower for the League One high-flyers, and we also saw Lacazette and Saka get much-needed minutes in preparation for the North London Derby on Sunday.

Now the Boss will have to get his big guns ready for the visit of our great rivals Tottenham, and after watching the positivity coming from the fans last night he is expecting Sunday’s crowd to be the twelth man when Spurs come to town. “Absolutely, but winning football matches is what brings that connection and belief, and fans happier.

“They are here to support the team and they want to see the team winning. It is a natural thing. They have always been with the team and now they are at a different level, and we need them at an even higher level on Sunday because we’re going to need them and hopefully we can enjoy a beautiful day together.”

Hopefully we can Mikel, let’s keep this run going!

COYG!

    Win and we could go 9th.
    Lose and we could fall to 17th.
    Another “Critical” game

      Really disrespectful and very obnoxious comment saying they are a “Nobody FC” and “Mickey Mouse Cup”

      very disrespectful comment imo

      For a club who are not even 20 years old, to be in the 3rd round of any cup and to be in league 1 is a massive achievement.

      I went to the game and the fans were brilliant, full support of the club they LOVE which is what should always happen at games

    Very disrespectful comment indeed. Even a club like Man City, given all its riches takes the League Cup seriously, also given its standing as PL champions. Having said that, I hope Laca starts on Sunday. Very good hold up play, links well with the team mates around, inspiring to the youngsters, fights hard all game and has a fantastic work rate and commitment to the cause. My line up would be:
    Ramsdale
    Tomiyasu White Gabriel Tierney
    Partey ASL
    Saka MO ESR
    Laca
    Auba and Pepe can come on as subs if we desperately are chasing the game. I think this line up should beat the Spuds, given the fans will be the 12th man.

    Coyg I will enjoy the little things in life.. a lot better than losing.. some people just want us to continue losing so they can make up stupid statistics and have a platform to spread their hate looool.. glad it ain’t working 😂 bring on the spuds!!!
