Arteta reflects on win over Leeds 0

Posted on February 15, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal knew they had to put in a strong performance last night if they wanted to beat Leeds United – and in the end, that’s exactly what they did. The Gunners beat Leeds 4-2 in what turned out to be a pretty dramatic game of football, and while this isn’t the silver bullet that will solve all of the club’s problems, they did look far more confident going forward than they have done in a long time.

Mikel Arteta spoke to the media after one of the more exhilarating encounters of his tenure so far.

A lot has been said about Arsenal so far this season, and understandably so, and that has carried over into the last few games due to a relatively poor run of form. However, the hope from many Gunners supporters is that when they match up against Leeds, they can prove that there are levels to playing attacking football and how to do it at the very highest level.

We’re expecting this to be a war, and while this may be a bit over the top, we do believe that this has the potential to be an incredibly entertaining encounter – perhaps the best of the season so far in the Premier League.

Arsenal will go to war with Leeds United at the Emirates on Sunday, knowing that a win would be absolutely integral to their hopes of finishing in the top six this season. Losing again really isn’t an option when you take a quick glance at the Premier League table, regardless of how well Marcelo Bielsa’s men may be playing right now.

Before the Gunners lock horns with Leeds, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about several topics as the race for a place in Europe goes on.

Arsenal have had a number of players absent from the last couple of fixtures, and here’s the official verdict when it comes to some of them being involved when the Gunners face Leeds United on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Bernd Leno was sent off for a, for a lack of a better word, foolish moment when he handled the ball outside the penalty area in the 2-1 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers on February 2nd. He has now served his one-match suspension – the 1-0 defeat away to Aston Villa on Saturday last, which means he is available for Sunday.

The injury Thomas Partey suffered in Arsenal’s defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday is not serious and he could be back in contention by the time the Gunners face Leeds United at the Emirates on Sunday, multiple sources have reported.

The midfielder was forced off the pitch at Villa Park with a muscle issue in the 74th minute, causing another worry for manager Mikel Arteta.

“I don’t know, he had a muscular issue so we had to take him off,” the boss said after the game.

Nicolas Pepe apologizes for getting sent off against Leeds 0

Nicolas Pepe was sent off in Arsenal’s goalless draw against Leeds United on Sunday, and the Ivorian winger has taken to Instagram to offer his apologies to the fans, his teammates, manager Mikel Arteta, and everyone else at the club for his actions.

The game had just gone past its 50th minute when Pepe, clearly annoyed by Ezgjan Alioski, appeared to have headbutted the┬áLeeds left-back. The contact between their foreheads seemed minimal and there’s no doubt that Alioski made the most of it with a theatrical fall, but the fact that Pepe should have known better than to react that way is beyond doubt as well. In all fairness, referee Anthony Taylor had no choice but to raise the red card against him after seeing the incident via the pitch-side VAR monitor.

Arsenal fans weren’t exactly treated to the best performance last night as the club played out a somewhat dire 0-0 draw with Leeds United. The Yorkshire-based side were the ones that looked the most likely to score, especially when the Gunners went down to ten men, but the visitors somehow managed to ride out the storm and secure a point.

After the game, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke about a range of subjects from his side’s performance to the bizarre actions of Nicolas Pepe that led to his dismissal early in the second half.

As part of his pre-match press conference, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke candidly about the need to protect players under the current circumstances they face.

Arsenal will be returning to Premier League action this Sunday after two weeks off thanks to the international break. While they may not have gone into the break in the best form after a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa, they’ll be hoping that they can get back to winning ways against Leeds United.

Before kick-off, though, Arsenal.com has provided fans with an update regarding the Gunners’ team news. While the club has had far worse injury problems in recent years, it’s still worth noting that they’ll be without a few key players for what could prove to be one of the games of the season.
