Nuno Tavares

Nuno Tavares was pulled out early after a disappointing performance in a 3-0 thrashing of Arsenal at Selhurst Park on Monday.


What did Arteta say about Tavares?

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has challenged the Portuguese footballer to rebound from a difficult period after he was substituted at half-time against Crystal Palace. Tavares started the clash at Selhurst Park on Monday but did not return for the second half as Martinelli was brought on as a substitute. Arsenal dropped 2-0 when they entered at half-time and ended up losing the clash 3-0, aiming to finish in the top four in the PL.

Nuno was singled out after his performance against the Eagles and Mikel urged him to respond in a positive manner and to silence his critics. Mikel Arteta told reporters that throughout a career one has to go through difficult periods. According to Arteta, it’s a player development curve, it’s up and down, but he’s ready and he’s ready.

Nuno Tavares will be disappointed, but that’s part of his job. They have to make decisions to try and win football matches – but that’s nothing personal. Obviously Arteta spoke to Tavares because he cares a lot about how the players feel and they are here to make their careers better. According to Mikel Arteta, the decision hurt him. Nuno Tavares should respond to this situation because it is a great opportunity to learn a lot during that period of their career.


Nuno Tavares’ activities at Arsenal

Nuno moved to the North London team from Benfica last summer and has only made 15 appearances in the PL this season. The Portuguese footballer has so far been reduced to a minor role under Mikel in 2022, limited to a one-minute cameo against the wolves before being given a chance in the starting XI on Monday. However, Nuno under 21s could be called up to start for Arsenal more often ahead of the rest of the campaign, with Tierney until the end of the season after knee surgery.
