Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Arkadiusz Milik’s « Little Brother » interview!
Arsenal will soon have to get up. After their heavy defeat on the lawn of their biggest rival Tottenham, the players of Mikel Arteta no longer have the right to make mistakes. Still fourth, the Gunners only have a one-point lead over Spurs with a view to qualifying for the Champions League. He will certainly have to win the last two days to keep his seat.
Before facing Newcastle, the Spanish coach reflected on this defeat: “We started the match well, after seeing the first goal, the decisions taken afterwards… it’s complicated to evaluate or judge the performance. But I’m proud of the players, how they handled the situation despite the disappointment of the result. Losing a derby, especially given the scenario of the match, is painful. But that’s how it is, you learn more from such an experience than from a victory, it’s almost positive to have moments like that sometimes. »
🗣️Arteta on injuries:
“We will have to change the system for it to work. We have more defenders, even if there are players from the academy, they don’t have experience at this level and are not really central defenders. We will have to find a solution. »

However, he was optimistic: “I’m lucky to have them, seeing the way they behave in the face of difficulties, seeing how much they look forward to playing on Monday, seeing what they’ve been through all season, the fight to get to this position. They show me nothing but enthusiasm every day. They bring back an energy, they want to play the next game, to go there and perform at the highest level. »
