That is now five games in 2022 without a win and seven hours since they last scored a goal. Arteta said afterwards: “We started slow, we looked leggy and didn't have enough rhythm or intention to attack the way we wanted. “We started to play better, more rhythm and threat and came out in the second half completely different. “We tried in every different way but lacked the quality in the final third. “At the end, when we have a really low block,...

    MIKEL Arteta can barely believe that James McArthur was not sent off for his volley-like kick on Bukayo Saka. The Crystal Palace midfielder scythed down Saka with a brutal boot to the back of the leg - but only received a yellow card from referee Mike Dean. 2Mike Dean's yellow card for McArthur after his challenge on Saka was not deemed a clear and obvious error by VAR 2Saka hobbled off after being booted by McArthurCredit: Reuters Saka cleared the ball from in front of McArthur and the Eagles midfielder followed-through with a thunderous boot to his calf. VAR took no further action, and Arteta raged to Sky Sports: "If we want to detect things that are really relevant in a game and can change a football match, then they have to be looked at.

    UNAI EMERY twisted the knife in on former club Arsenal and Mikel Arteta admitted: I got it wrong. Emery was sacked to make way for Arteta at the Emirates 17 months ago but his tactical nous helped Villarreal to a Europa League first-leg victory. 3Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta admitted he got it wrong with his team selection against VillarrealCredit: EPA The Gunners were a shambles as their manager’s gamble to play with no strikers and Granit Xhaka at left-back backfired spectacularly as the La Liga side raced into a 2-0 lead by half-time. In the end a lucky penalty from Nicolas Pepe at least kept Arsenal in the tie, but asked if he had cocked up with his selection, Arteta said: “Obviously when you lose you always get it wrong “We were really stretched and we didn't have the right spaces with the right people - and then we were open, and then we didn't give ourselves the chance even to get set in the final third to do what we wanted to do because we weren't precise on the...

    MIKEL ARTETA admitted that Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal are giving him sleepless nights after a stunning three-goal comeback at West Ham. The Gunners boss was furious with his team’s efforts in the first 30 minutes at the London Stadium and delighted with their performance in the last hour. 1Mikel Arteta's Arsenal side remain inconsistent, as they continue to both impress and disappointCredit: Reuters Arteta, 38, said: “I am very disappointed with the way we started the game. We weren’t at the races and the way we coincided three goals was completely unacceptable. “But the final 60 minutes was probably the best I’ve seen us play under pressure in tough conditions.   “Some teams would have collapsed and started complaining to each either, but we were the complete opposite and it’s a shame we didn’t win because we created six or seven good chances to score. “But it’s the first part of the game that keeps me awake because I’m worried about the different levels of performance that we still show within the same game. “That’s where I think we are still...
    ARSENAL have been told that transfer target Odsonne Edouard could be available for a cut-price £15million this summer. The Gunners were interested in a move for the French striker last summer but were put off by the Hoop's £40m valuation. 2Arsenal could reignite their interest in Celtic star Odsonne EdouardCredit: Kenny Ramsay - The Sun Glasgow The 23-year-old has attracted plenty of attention since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain in 2018 with West Ham recently linked with a move. Edouard - who has chipped in with 15 goals in 21 games this term - is in the final 18 months of his contract in Scotland with Celtic forced to sell to avoid losing him for nothing. And former Parkhead star Andy Walker believes Arsenal could make a move with uncertainty surrounding Alexandre Lacazette's future. He told the Scottish Football Podcast: “Odsonne Edouard realises that he’s got ability and is worth a lot of money. “How much? I’m not sure, as he’s not been firing on all cylinders. “Let’s say they paid £9m for him but any player who switches off –...
    ARSENAL outcast William Saliba has admitted that he was 'hurt' by his lack of opportunities with the Gunners. The Frenchman arrived in North London last summer, having spent a year on loan at Saint-Etienne following his £27million switch in 2019. 2William Saliba has joined OGC Nice on loanCredit: Reuters But boss Mikel Arteta froze him out, not even naming him on the bench for a Premier League game - or in his 25-man Europa League squad. Saliba, 19, found himself limited to Under-23s football, before being loaned out to Nice earlier this month. Speaking to TF1, he said: "I really, really, really didn't think that I would be transferred for €30m, to think that I would arrive, where people were expecting a lot from me, the fans excited about me and you find yourself in the reserves. "To play zero, zero nothing in the Europa League or the league. I was in the squad once in the League Cup. It hurt me, it affected me. "I don't think I left too early.

    JACK WILSHERE joked there was not much to learn from playing against Barcelona's legendary midfield - as he pocketed them on the pitch. Wilshere conducted a Q&A online and was asked about playing Barca at the Emirates in 2011. 3Jack Wilshere playing against Barcelona in 2011Credit: News Group Newspapers Ltd 3Jack Wilshere pictured next to Andres IniestaCredit: Reuters Couldnt learn much, they all spent the night in my pocket ???????? https://t.co/HfmnNdZeVB— Jack Wilshere (@JackWilshere) January 22, 2021 And he was quizzed on who he learned most from between Andres Iniesta, Xavi or Sergio Busquets.

We performed below our standards and I have to say it’s the first time I’ve seen us play and we weren’t a team. “We didn't start well enough, we got away with VAR for an offside situation but we lost all the races, the duels and we were sloppy on the ball. “When we created chances we didn't hit the target.

    MIKEL ARTETA believes that fatigue played a factor in his Arsenal side slipping to a 1-0 home defeat to Leicester on Sunday. The Gunners failed to break down Brendan Rodgers' resolute Leicester City, a result that sees them slip to tenth in the early Premier League table. 3Mikel Arteta was left frustrated by his side's 1-0 defeatCredit: Reuters At the end of a week that saw No10 Mesut Ozil omitted from their 25-man squad, Arsenal struggled to get through the Foxes' backline.

    ARSENAL'S stand-in goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is outshining No1 Bernd Leno in every department, according to the stats. German stopper Leno, 28, was ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a nasty knee injury against Brighton. 3Emiliano Martinez is outperforming normal No1 Bernd LenoCredit: EPA 3Martinez is outperforming Leno in every category Mikel Arteta and Co were fearful they'd be left even weaker at the back after he was sidelined. But long-term second-choice Martinez, 27, has been outstanding since coming into the XI. Since coming into the team, Arsenal have beaten champions Liverpool, Wolves, Norwich, Sheffield United and Southampton, losing just once - to Tottenham. And Martinez has been a huge reason for that, making more saves per 90 minutes, while conceding fewer goals per game. Martinez's save percentage is a sky-high 81.8, compared to Leno's 74.2. And his form has certainly given Arteta food for thought - with the Spaniard even saying he's "earned his place".
