Arteta reflects on Arsenal’s win over West Ham 0

Arsenal had to go through the wars against West Ham United on Saturday night, but in the end, they were able to get the job done as they secured their second straight win of the new Premier League season. The Hammers put up a pretty good fight and looked like they were going to come away with a result, but a late goal from youngster Eddie Nketiah ensured that the Gunners kept up their strong 100% start to the new season.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media in the wake of what turned out to be a pretty tense affair.

Arsenal were able to kickstart their new Premier League campaign with a win over Fulham last weekend, and heading into their clash with West Ham United, the expectation was that they’d make it two from two. They did manage to do that, but boy oh boy did they make hard work of it at the Emirates.

At some points it was pretty clear to see that the Gunners just weren’t at the races and while you have to commend them for picking up the three points, there’s nothing wrong in throwing a few criticisms their way, either. Mikel Arteta is still in the early stages of building his first team, and it’s going to take some time before they really start to thrive as a unit.

Arsenal are absolutely flying to start off the new Premier League season, from the positive signing of Gabriel to beating Fulham 3-0 to getting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to sign a new contract with the club. This weekend, they’ll be attempting to keep that positive run of form going when they take part in their second straight London derby of the campaign – this time against West Ham United.

Mikel Arteta took part in his usual pre-match press conference prior to the game against the Hammers, and it’s safe to say that a whole lot of topics came up.

Arsenal transfer rumours: Anderson, Sokratis, Torreira 0

The summer transfer window rambles on and Arsenal have so far been reasonably active in the market. They’ve secured the services of winger Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer and centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille for a reported fee of €30 million (£27m). That, however, doesn’t seem to be the end of the business this summer, if reports of further dealings are to be believed.

According to the Mirror, the Gunners are interested in signing West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson after they were offered the services of the Brazilian on a season-long loan for £5m. The 27-year-old arrived to the London Stadium from Lazio in 2018. Last season he made a total of 27 appearances for the Hammers, scoring once any laying on five assists.

On our unbeaten league run:
It’s only turning a corner in terms of results. A little bit in terms of the things I want to see from my team, but they were telling me now that ‘I’ve turned the ship around’, that ship still has to turn a few times more to see what we want to see. It’s part of the process, it doesn’t happen overnight, we are positive that we can keep going on this from the eight or nine weeks that we’ve been here. It will be down to the performances that we put in and it will be related to the results.

It was another nervous afternoon in North London as Arsenal narrowly edged their way past West Ham United and picked up another three points as their push for a place in the top four, or perhaps five, continues. After the game Mikel Arteta gave his thoughts on the big result.

It’s time to get back into the swing of Premier League football as Arsenal prepare to try and work their way back into the top four mix. While it’s going to take a while for them to be viewed as serious contenders once again, the hope is that they can build up some momentum against sides that, realistically, they should be beating.

West Ham United almost certainly fall into that category and while it’s going to be a bit of a slog, they’ll be viewed as the favourites to come away with the three points from the Emirates later today.

On how Auba has trained after missing that chance against Olympiacos:
He was down. He felt responsible for what happened. We all tried to convince him that even though he had the best chance of the game, he was the one who put us in that situation earlier. He’s done it [scored] on many occasions this season and last season. We need him happy, smiling and full of energy. That’s the way he’s looked for the last few days.

Arsenal were able to get the win over West Ham United at London Stadium in a game that looked like it could be drifting away from them on more than a few occasions. In the end, though, they got themselves over the finish line, in what could wind up being a turning point in their campaign.

Angelo Ogbonna had given the Hammers a first half advantage, but in the second, Gabriel Martinelli popped up with a goal on his full Premier League debut to equalise. Nicolas Pepe curled in a wonderful effort to put Ljungberg’s side ahead, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completing the hat-trick and sealing the points.

On finding time to improve between games:
It would be nice to have a few days so I can actually practise with them. Before the game is almost like a walkthrough, slowly, of what we need to do and maybe that’s why we start a bit too slowly all the time! Because you can’t really have the tempo in training, but it’s a lot of video and trying to show sequences that we can do better because we can’t really do it on the field. That’s not ideal, but that’s December and the situation I’m in with the players. We do the best we can.
