Video – Watch Mikel Arteta’s thoughts on the last minute draw with Crystal Palace

Although last night’s last-minute equaliser by Alexandre Lacazette meant that Arsenal has now gone unbeaten for the last 5 games, it was not a happy night for Mikel Arteta.

He is very unhappy with Bukayo Saka getting injured and his attacker only getting booked, and he thinks that his team gave away two “cheap goals” and didn’t deserve to lose the game.

But he is happy with Lacazette for his impact after coming on for the last ten minutes, so there is a positive!

Anyway, here is his own words….

  1. Almost two years down the line, 13 players signed(excluding loans), over £200m spent and we’re still getting excuses. I really wonder where Newcastle (before the takeover) would have been if Arteta was their manager given how tight their purse was. Maybe League two

  2. Just excuses. Arteta is afraid of every team. Negative football, no signs of a plan or a playing style…he had more than a week to prepare the Match, at Home and with a much better team….there is no excuses, Arteta is not up to the job, i don’t nerd more evidence

    1. He is not. He could have been a pep bis. I hoped that as i want the club i love to win but reality is that the gamble did not pay off, as arteta is an average manager. Except few miracles, and that 1st half against a poor spurs, we were outsmarted by many weaker teams. I dont doubt that arteta does his best, but he simply is not at the required level. And we dont score goals. Look at the numbers. Despite 200m invested, bringing an almost all new team, he did not improve any results. Emery would have been dismantled if we were 12th, he finished 5th, was stucked at 8th and sacked. Arteta finished 8th (2 times) and is now 12th….
