Arteta praises Arsenal after Leicester win 0

Posted on March 01, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal seemed to be staring down the barrel of disappointment once again when they took on Leicester City yesterday after they gifted the Foxes an early goal. However, instead of collapsing in on themselves, the Gunners dug deep and really did push back against Leicester in a big way – eventually running out 3-1 winners at the King Power.

One man who was understandably elated by the result is Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. He spoke with the media after what can only be described as one of the most satisfying wins of the season so far.

Arsenal are well aware that they’ll be viewed as the underdogs heading into their game against Leicester City today. Still, even with that being the case, they’ll also know that they’ve got what it takes to overcome the Foxes if they can just get things going early on. Whether or not that happens though, given their inconsistencies, remains to be seen.

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has taken the time to not only look ahead to the Leicester game, but to also reflect on the success of the win over Benfica.

Pablo Mari has able to get a full 90 minutes under his belt during Arsenal’s recent loss to Manchester City, and while he alone wasn’t able to get the Gunners a successful result, many supporters were happy enough with his output. Mari’s role within the squad has been questioned on several occasions with some wondering whether or not he has what it takes to be a consistent first teamer, which is a conversation that’ll probably go on for many of Arsenal’s defenders.

During an interview with, Pablo was honest in his assessment of how the game went.

Arsenal showed a few bright sparks last night against Manchester City, but in the end, the Gunners fell to a 1-0 defeat against the runaway league leaders and champions-elect. Raheem Sterling’s 2nd minute goal proved to be the winner, and while this may be a setback, there are some positives to take away from the performance – even if it doesn’t seem like it.

After the game, Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about the game as well as the road ahead with a quick turnaround before they face Benfica.

Arsenal will lock horns with Manchester City this afternoon in what has the potential to be one of the games of the season so far – if the Gunners are able to really go after the league leaders, that is. We all know that Arsenal have had their fair share of difficult moments throughout the course of the campaign thus far, but if they can get out ahead of Pep’s men and put some pressure on them, we could be in for a cracker.

During a recent interview with, manager Mikel Arteta looked ahead to a huge few weeks that will see them play Manchester City, Benfica, Leicester, West Ham and Liverpool.

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.

The loss that Arsenal suffered at the hands of Aston Villa this past weekend seemed to once again put Mikel Arteta’s position as manager into sharp focus. With the Gunners’ top four hopes being in tatters and their top six ambitions also looking a bit suspect, there’s a growing opinion that Arteta isn’t the right man for the job.

Today, we’re going to try and walk through that theory with some analysis of our own.

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.

Ryan reflects on Arsenal debut 0

Posted on February 09, 2021 by Harry Kettle

When Mathew Ryan was first introduced into the equation at the Emirates many fans didn’t expect to see him start so soon – but such is the unpredictable nature of professional football in the COVID-19 pandemic. Ryan was the man tasked with keeping out Aston Villa’s exciting attacking stars this past weekend, but unfortunately for him, the defence was broken within just two minutes.

Arsenal went on to lose the game 1-0 and while Ryan didn’t concede again after that initial strike from Ollie Watkins, he was clearly still disappointed when speaking with the media after the fact.
