Arteta looks back on huge win over Leeds 0

Posted on May 09, 2022 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal Football Club rarely like to make life easy for themselves and that was particularly true over the weekend when they played host to Leeds United at the Emirates. A Tottenham draw against Liverpool swung the door wide open for the Gunners to extend their advantage over their North London rivals and while they did eventually do that with a 2-1 win, they had to hold on towards the end of the game with Leeds battling for their Premier League lives.

After the full-time whistle had blown, manager Mikel Arteta gave his thoughts on how it all went down.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are the two main clubs in the hunt for fourth place and that much has become obvious as the weeks have progressed. Now, in the upcoming few days, the Gunners have a huge opportunity to put some distance between themselves and their North London rivals as they prepare to play host to Leeds United the Emirates.

Tottenham have a tough game on their hands against Liverpool and so, by default, Arsenal should see this as a huge opportunity – with Mikel Arteta confirming how important this fixture is in his pre-match media commitments.

The number of problems Arsenal have had with the players wearing the captain’s armband in recent years borders on ridiculous. It’s still not easy to forget the manner in which Laurent Koscielny left the club, and after that, Granit Xhaka was stripped of the privilege after an angry altercation with the fans at the Emirates. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the next man in line, and we all know how that ended. Alexandre Lacazette took it on from there, but the Frenchman is on his way out of the club too and he may have already played his last game for the club.

Arsenal fans knew they had to up their game in the wake of three straight defeats and in the last couple of weeks, they’ve done that in a big way. The Gunners have managed to defeat Chelsea, Manchester United and now West Ham United in a short space of time, with the latter of those three successes coming over the weekend.

It was a difficult win and the visitors rode their luck, but they got the job done – with Mikel Arteta noting how close they came to disaster in his post-match interview.

It’s been quite the week for Arsenal Football Club with the Gunners needing a response after losing three on the bounce in the Premier League. While many doubted their ability to overcome Chelsea and Manchester United, Mikel Arteta was able to guide them towards success with two mammoth wins – the latter of which went down on Saturday.

Arsenal had to fend off a stern comeback from United and in doing so, ran out 3-1 winners.

After the match, Arteta spoke with the media about the result and what it means for their top four prospects.

Speaking to the press after the superb display at Stamford Bridge, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta revealed talks with Mohamed Elneny about the possibility of a new contract being signed are planned to take place at the end of the season.

Elneny’s current deal expires in two months. He was close to leaving the club in January with several clubs reportedly expressing interest in his services, but Arteta says it was him who convinced the Egyptian to stay put for the second half of the season, sensing he would still be needed at the Emirates. And with Thomas Partey picking up an injury in a moment crucial for the top-four race, it’s quite obvious the manager got his prediction spot on.

We’ve all seen strange results come out of nowhere in the world of professional football and last night, we saw a huge example of that as Arsenal battered Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge.

The Gunners were coming off of three straight losses to Brighton, Crystal Palace and Southampton, whereas Chelsea had just managed to reach the FA Cup final after narrowly exiting the Champions League to Real Madrid.

Alas, football is a strange game, and manager Mikel Arteta was willing to acknowledge what a crazy evening it was during his post-match press conference.

“I haven’t been fair” – Mikel Arteta on Eddie Nketiah after Chelsea triumph 0

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke in glowing terms about Eddie Nketiah following the striker’s brace at Stamford Bridge as he helped the team beat Chelsea by 2-4.

The 23-year-old first pounced on a mistake by Andreas Christensen to break the deadlock in the 13th minute, and having seen three more goals in between (Timo Werner for Chelsea in the 17th, Emile Smith Rowe in the 27th and Cesar Azpilicueta for Chelsea in the 32nd), he struck again in a manner of a true poacher in the 57th to give the Gunners the lead in the 57th. Bukayo Saka set the final score from the spot in injury time.

Arsenal Football Club went from looking like the favourites in the top four hunt to losing three straight games. Some will say they’re stunned by this turn of events but if you’ve been watching Arsenal Football Club for long enough, you’ll soon come to realise that it actually isn’t all that surprising after all.

The Gunners have always struggled to maintain their consistency, to the point where we can understand why the fanbase gets so unbelievably frustrated. Now, with a London derby against Chelsea on the horizon, manager Mikel Arteta has spoken with the media regarding what we should expect to see against the Blues.

Arteta reacts to disappointing Southampton stumble 0

Arsenal fell to a third straight loss and their fourth in five Premier League games over the weekend as they were beaten 1-0 by Southampton. The loss came as a surprise to some but when you take one look at the downward spiral the club has been on in weeks gone by, it really shouldn’t be that shocking.

The Gunners have a habit of dropping the ball in important situations and that’s especially the case in fixtures they should, really, be winning.

After the full-time whistle had blown, Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about the result.
