Video: Mikel Arteta admits frustrations with the Benfica result

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has admitted that he was unhappy with the 1-1 scoreline with Benfica after his side dominated much of the match.

The Gunners were undoubtedly the better side over the 90 minutes, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missing a host of chances in front of goal.

Arsenal will not be satisfied with just the one away goal, with both legs of the clash to be played in neutral venues, but should we be able to dominate our rivals in two weeks time, we should be able to earn ourselves a place in the next round.

Arteta admits that he is frustrated with the result after the performance of his players.

Does the performance make us the favourites, or will Benfica have other ideas when they come to Athens in search of away goals?

    Very disappointing night, Benfica big club but 4th in the portuguese league! If we get knocked out next week, that will be a big embarrassment for the club… Exited the competition twice in round of 32 in succession. we must go though or there’s no justification for keeping Arteta on… We are sinking lower every year.

    I dont get playing ESR as a winger, i dont get playing slow deliberate football, i dont get the substitutions, i dont get the treatment of Lacazette, i dont get the immediate trust in odergaard and i dont get the treatment of Holding. Nothing Arteta does seems to make sense and his best moves have been forced on him. Yes Auba let us down last night but with a change in personell and attitude, we still could have won that game easily. Big chance thrown away.
