After a jubilant 3-1 victory in the London derby in the 34th round of the NHA, coach Mikel Arteta believes that his students have regained their form after a series of four consecutive games without a win.
Before the confrontation with Chelsea at Emirates Stadium in the 34th round of the NHA, Arsenal FC only won 3 points in the last 4 matches. This result made them take the top spot from Man City after a 2-1 win at Fulham last weekend.
There is no other way, the Gunners are forced to beat Chelsea in the late game of this round. And thanks to the brilliance of the pillars, it is impossible not to mention Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Jesus – the authors of the goals scored against The Blues in this confrontation.
Arsenal’s sublimation against Chelsea is really a good sign for the Gunners in the race to the title. And speaking after the game, coach Arteta said: “We wanted to have a different approach to the game and the team did that from the beginning. Arsenal are back to their best.
It was a team full of energy, determination, class and we really did it. Arsenal scored two fantastic goals, controlled the game and absolutely deserved to win.
We want to prove that we have the fire inside of us. I can see that in the last few days and we are well prepared for the game. Mentally, we entered the game in the best of moods. Everything went very well.
Arsenal have had a difficult couple of weeks with a lot of emotions. Today we are back at the top of the league – let’s see what happens.”
The Spanish military leader also did not forget to praise captain Odegaard after his impressive performance in the last match. “We don’t know where the limits of the players are,” he said.
When you have a player of quality and eager to learn every day, he always believes that there are areas where he can still improve a lot. Odegaard never stopped training with us and he has been well rewarded. That’s his value.”
