Arsenal fans have been treated to a pretty tremendous start to the season and with the World Cup on the horizon, Gunners fans won’t have to worry about too much disappointment between now and the winter break.
Of course, you never quite know what’s coming around the next corner in this sport, which is why the club has to be vigilant when hosting Brighton & Hove Albion in the League Cup this evening.
The Emirates will be rocking and in a recent interview, manager Mikel Arteta spoke candidly about what he expects to see.
“It’s been an unbelievable joy to be part of the games that we have had at the Emirates with our supporters,” he said. “It’s the last time we have with them before we start the ‘second season’, so we want to give them some joy and something to be proud of, and we need to do that tomorrow.
“We have to, as a club, take every competition seriously. We need to understand obviously the risks and rewards that we have, but at the same time we cannot treat any competition in a different way.
“We want another win because as well, playing well helps winning, and winning helps winning. It maintains the mood, it maintains the momentum, the confidence, the trust, the involvement of everybody and it’s just beneficial in any aspect.”
