In the wake of the impressive result, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media as the attention now turns towards a huge game against Manchester United on Saturday.

Arsenal have officially confirmed that their match against Southampton at the Emirates, which kicks off at 6PM on December 16th, will be played behind closed doors again, in light of the UK Government decision to move London into Tier 3 of COVID-19 restrictions.

Fans returned to the Emirates for the first time since March for the Gunners’ Europa League fixture against Rapid Vienna last week, with 2000 spectators allowed on the stands. The same number witnessed the dismal performance against Burnley on Sunday evening, but there will be no more spectators for the upcoming matches until further notice.
