Arteta reacts to Arsenal’s win over Leeds – part 2 0

Posted on January 07, 2020 by Harry Kettle

On the suggestion that Leeds could have been two up at half-time:
That’s why we had to react. We changed some things. The biggest change was how we approached the second half, the mentality, how aggressive we are, how intense we are. We started to win every duel, every 50:50, we were playing in the opponent’s half and making passes forward and runs forward and being positive on the ball. It was different.

Arsenal faced a lot of adversity last night during their FA Cup third round clash against Leeds United. It was the definition of a tough game as the Championship leaders came right at them in the first half, refusing to let them breathe. However, in the second half, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was able to turn things around and guide the Gunners to a 1-0 win that secured their spot in the fourth round of the competition.

After the game, Arteta spoke with the media about the win.

The magic of the cup has been seen, felt and heard across English football in the last few days as the third round of the FA Cup has been and gone – well, almost. There’s one more game of note that is set to take place and that game will see Arsenal host Leeds United in a battle between two of English football’s most historic clubs.

Both have had their fair share of bumps in the road over the years, but it’s safe to say that Leeds have suffered the worst across the last decade or so. Now, though, things seem to have changed, and there’s an argument to be made that this third round encounter is going to wind up being more unpredictable than most would think.

Today Arsenal will step back into the lion’s den in the form of an FA Cup tie against Championship high-flyers Leeds United – a team they will almost certainly be meeting again twice in the Premier League this season. Alas, while many people will choose to focus on what they can do to try and succeed and progress into the fourth round, we thought it’d be fun to take a look back at a meeting between the two clubs from around seven years ago. In fact, it was almost seven years to the day in the same competition and at the same venue.

On Eddie Nketiah’s return:
We have to sit down with the loan department and we’ll do that this afternoon, to discuss the best possible way for him to keep developing. I think the environment that he’s been living in has improved him as a player, 100 per cent. He played some minutes, not as much as we wanted, but he’s a kid with incredible potential and we have to make a decision for the club, not for the next four months but for his career. What’s the best thing to do? We have to sit down with him, hear from him – that’s very important because we need to know what he needs as well – and make the right decision for the next five months.

We tend to believe in a world in which the FA Cup matters, and we’d like to think Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta invests in that theory as well. It’s a competition which has been incredibly kind to the Gunners over the years, and if they put a lot into it, then that could be the case once again. Prior to the Gunners jumping back into action against Leeds on Monday night to conclude third round weekend, Arteta spoke to the media.

The Premier League season is in full flow right now and we’ve got a lot of fun European football to look forward to alongside that. However, we’re not so sure that anything compares to the thrill that comes with the FA Cup. The oldest club football competition may have lost its spark in the eyes of many, but for Arsenal fans, this has always been a competition that has agreed with them.
