Arsenal were beaten at home on Saturday, which made it two defeats in a row for the top four hopeless players.


What did Mikel Arteta say?

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says his side should be slapped after losing 2-1 to Brighton on Saturday. Arsenal were beaten by Graham Potter’s team at the Emirates Stadium, hurting their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season. The Gunners have now lost two matches in a row, also losing 3-0 to Crystal Palace in the league on Monday.

Mikel says his side should take a critical look at their performance again after the last set back. Mikel Arteta told reporters what is happening is that they criticize themselves a lot again. According to Mikel they will get slapped again because they deserved it so much and they were really poor in the first half and then they got up.

They know that this road leads nowhere, especially with where they want to be. Arteta says they have everything to play for in the last eight games and they need to have that energy and visualize the great challenge ahead of them rather than sit back and watch what happens.


It was too late

Mikel Arteta said they were sloppy on the ball again. According to the manager they were second best in several situations, they didn’t gain any momentum, they didn’t show any purpose in the game, they didn’t play at the right pace and they transformed the game that Brighton offered today.

First chance they had, only chance they had, Mikel thinks they scored. They created a cold atmosphere that they were not comfortable with, but when they tried to change it, it was already too late. It was great not to give up, but it was too late. The Spanish manager added that they created a chilly atmosphere.

The fans were here and they were exceptional and they can see the moment they gave them something that they tried. Did they play a game where they couldn’t see the purpose or intent of what the team was trying to do and wished they could do it? Nothing. The Spaniard says they have to give them something and they didn’t give them anything in the first half and it’s up to them.
