Mikel Arteta has confronted the press after the Gunners’ 0-0 draw at Amex Stadium with Brighton and Hove Albion.
Is that a point acquired or your side has lost two points?
I think a point acquired on the grounds that I don’t think we merited anything over that. On the off chance that we merited this is on the grounds that we protected well the last 15 to 20 meters of our pitch. We never felt in charge of the game. We battled to break the press and get a decent succession of passes and force ourselves in the last third and it made it truly intense for us.
Is it true that you were baffled that your boys couldn’t infiltrate a fearless Brighton safeguard?
Indeed, in light of the fact that the manner in which they squeezed, in the event that we might have deciphered it and settled on better choices with the ball – and we did on a couple of events – there were huge spaces to assault and we had a major danger to do that. We weren’t sufficiently brilliant to do that and we didn’t show sufficient quality in those duels to have the option to break that press and afterward become truly risky in open spaces.
Is Ramsdale the kind of player you’ve been absent as of late with his character?
I don’t have a clue. The manner in which we’ve chosen to enroll Ramsdale is going through a major interaction where clearly we needed to think about his character, about his person, about the manner in which he could deal with the reality to play under huge strain in a major club. He’s appearance that he’s prepared. I’m truly content with his exhibitions and what he’s bringing to the group. That is the reason I think protectively we’ve been hard for him to surrender goals.
How glad would you say you are with the relationship White and Magalhaes have shaped and is that meeting up speedier than you suspected?
Indeed, in light of the fact that they never played together, in light of the fact that Magalhaes is as yet striving a tad with the language, since they didn’t have any an ideal opportunity to cooperate in pre-season all things considered. In any case, they’re getting a great association. Great science. I think their characteristics match and complete one another ridiculously well and I consider both them today were dynamite.
You picked Sambi Lokonga to supplant Xhaka. How would you think he got on in the job?
I figure he did all around well. I think he had perhaps the best execution of the players on the pitch. He shows a great deal of character and all the time great positions. I think his protective work and comprehension is improving. It was a truly troublesome game since it was constantly one-versus one duels in the pitch and it’s not the game that truly suits him the most. Yet, I think considering the conditions he did all around well.
Saka fell off harmed toward the end, would he say he is alright?
He’ll be fine better believe it. He got a thump yet he ought to be fine.
