Mikel Arteta please with performance against Chelsea at Stamford bridge.
Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta pleased with win against Chelsea at the Stamford bride in the Premier League.
Arsenal beats Chelsea 1-0 away from home as first half goal from Smith-Rowe was enough to seal the three points.
Gunners manager in an interview claims he was happy with the performance that gave the victory over the Blues.
“Great win,” he said. “It shows how tough it is to come here and win against a fantastic team. I think what Thomas is doing is great.
“They have so much quality, really good organisation and make it really difficult for you. From the beginning, we showed that we were coming here to try to win with the right spirit, with the right attitude, we showed moments of real quality as well.
“We got the goal and then we had to defend in long periods. To do that, you have to be really committed and resilient. We needed some luck and we had it tonight.”
The Spaniard further spoke on keeping a cleansheet at Stamford bridge as he admits it was not easy to do that.
“It’s really difficult because not many teams manage to do that here,” He added. “I think we had some really good moments in our high press, and when we had to defend deep I think we had some incredible organisation and really big individual performances there.
“Then, there’s a moment when we needed some luck and we had some luck.”
