Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has come out to say that his team’s performance vs Liverpool was very shocking. He recently revealed that he needs his boys to show big balls and respond in the next game.
According to him, Arsenal definitely deserved to lose the game because Liverpool was better in every department, and he takes full responsibility for it.
He added that there are no excuses for the loss as his team lacked football basics on the pitch.
His words, “We completely deserved to lose the game.”
“They were better in every department and deserved to win the game with the margin they had, or even more. I accept responsibility for the way we played today.”
“I don’t have to use any excuses – that we don’t have five or six players – the standards are much higher at this football club and I have to get them to perform at that level. It was technical as well. We gave every ball away and could not put three passes together. The basics weren’t there today.”
“At the moment I am in shock. I didn’t expect that because of the way the team trained.”
On the UEL, “It is a challenge and brings an opportunity,”
“If you have courage and big balls and you represent a club like this, you have to stand up in the next game and take it.”
“We want to apologise, to our people and our fans,”
“This is nowhere near what we want and we have to do better.”
