Arteta explains defeat suffered against Everton: Arsenal fans react.

Following the defeat from Saturday’s game against Everton that leaves Arsenal sitting comfortably at 15th position on the league table, with 14 points from 14 matches; Arteta offered some explanation for Arsenal’s poor run as of late. According to a press conference released on the club’s official site;

on the performance…
“We controlled them really well, the counter-attacks, apart from a few moments where we lost the ball inside, which is impossible to control. Then we started to look more and more dangerous in the final third, attacking this low block in front is complicated and we generated a lot of situations but they didn’t end up in big chances. Sometimes the cross, sometimes the last action or the shot and the conversion rate has been really low and is something that we must improve dramatically. And then, when we need a little bit of luck, we hit the post or we have some big chances and we don’t put them away. At the end, the reflection is a little bit similar to the last few weeks. You are better than the opponent, you dominate the game and usually when you are under this pressure and this position in the table, you get battered by teams. It’s not the case. I see the spirit in the team and how they try and how they are willing to do things the right way and I’m gutted for them as well because they needed a result and I think we played a game that we had to get something out of.”

Although Arteta has come under fire from the fan base, the City Manager was quick to defend his fellow Statesman. Some fans have reacted with mixed feelings, below are some of their comments:
