Arsenal’s first four hopes were out of their hands after a disastrous defeat.


What did Mikel Arteta say?

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta acknowledged that the Magpies were 10 times better than the Gunners, while acknowledging that Arsenal’s performance in Monday’s loss was nowhere near the level of a team hoping to make it to the Champions League. The Gunners’ Champions League hopes are no longer in their hands after Monday’s 2-0 defeat at Magpies, with Tottenham now on pole position for a place in Europe’s top competition. And Mikel admitted that the Gunners did nothing in what was essentially a sure-fire game, leaving everyone involved frustrated.

The Arsenal manager said that the Magpies deserved to win the match and were much better than them. They didn’t have anything in the game. According to Mikel Arteta they were much better in every department and they were poor on the ball. A lot of things happened during the game like substitutions for injuries, but that’s no excuse because they were so much better than them.

Arteta says it’s true that they didn’t play the game they should have played here. They tried to change something, but it did not improve the situation. They had moments when they looked better, but then the execution was so bad, and the goals they gave were extremely bad. According to Mikel, it was extremely disappointing that Newcastle were 10 times better than them and the performer was nowhere close to the level they need to be if they want to play in the Champions League.

Mikel Arteta says he is incredibly disappointed. It’s very painful. It was in their hands and now it is not in their hands. They should beat Everton and wait for Norwich to beat Spurs. There is always a small chance in football.


A little about the topic

With the loss, the Gunners have lost 13 games to the PL this season, their joint in a 38-game season. This one, however, could prove to be the most costly as Spurs are now in the driver’s seat to secure their place in the Champions League. Tottenham could lock in fourth place with a win over bottom-placed Norwich while the Gunners are left hoping their crosstown rivals fold. Arsenal would then need a result against Everton to keep any hopes of a Champions League spot alive.
