The Spaniard could not hide his expectation for the next good results after beating Chelsea in the London Derby.
In the 15th round of the Premier League, the match that attracts great attention from the viewers is the match between two forces in London – Arsenal vs Chelsea. Contrary to professional judgment, the Gunners, despite being in a serious crisis in terms of performance and quantity, played a great match and beat the visitors with a score of 3-1.
This is also Arsenal’s first victory since the last time they won all 3 points against Man Utd in round 7. Needless to say, everyone knows the players, as well as Gunners fans encouragement, especially when they beat a big name like Chelsea in a game of special significance on Boxing Day.
One of the individuals most under pressure after Arsenal’s poor series in recent years is Mikel Arteta. Therefore, after the team defeated Chelsea, the Spaniard was relieved:
“Winning is what we need most right now and it has indeed arrived today. For the past 8 weeks, we have played disappointing and unlucky games. Therefore, 3 points today are really important for the team. It was shown in the players’ determination right after the opening whistle and you could clearly see their fighting flames.
Before the match, the players showed a very good will to win and comfort. This makes me extremely satisfied. We have upset the fans for the past time and this is a moment for them. What could be better than beating a big club like Chelsea on Boxing Day.
Hopefully, this match will give us a great boost in the way ahead. Arsenal are in high spirits and excitement and we are confident we can do great things.”
