Mikel Arteta explains the reason for the removal of Holding, Partey and Martinelli

Coach Mikel Arteta did not use the trio of Rob Holding, Thomas Partey and Gabriel Martinelli from the beginning in the match against Chelsea.

In the 34th round of the Premier League 2022/23, Arsenal have a match against Chelsea at home. In the early match in round 34, the Green Man overcame difficulties in London when defeating host Fulham with a score of 2-1. With 3 points, Man City has officially surpassed Arsenal to take the top spot. With the current situation, Arsenal must win against Chelsea to regain the top spot, and continue to raise a fragile hope in chasing Man City.

Coach Mikel Arteta decided to make a change in personnel in the match against Chelsea. Rob Holding sat on the bench, creating conditions for Jakub Kiwior to have his first start in the Premier League. The main midfielder Thomas Partey made way for former Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, while Leandro Trossard started, thereby pushing Gabriel Martinelli to the bench.

When asked why Holding was substituted for Kiwior, Arteta told Sky Sports: “Because we had to change, we conceded too many goals. I have to give the opportunity to the most deserving.” On the reason why Jorginho started, the Spaniard continued: “At this stage of the season everyone has a chance. I think Arsenal need more possession, that’s why Jorginho was chosen.”

“Trossard also deserves a starting kick. He’s had some great performances since coming here, I didn’t have too much trouble picking him in the starting list.”

Arsenal played well against Chelsea, they beat the opponent with a score of 3-1. With this result, the Gunners reclaim the top spot from Man City.
