boss Mikel Arteta ‘so disappointed’ after loosing against Aston Villa

Published

on

Mikel Arteta admitted he was ‘so disappointed’ with Arsenal’s defeat to Aston Villa as he felt his side dominated the game and the better team lost.

Ollie Watkins’ early goal proved decisive for the 1-0 win at Villa Park – the Gunners’ second defeat in the West Midlands in five days.

Watkins put Villa ahead in the second minute with a deflected shot past Arsenal debutant Mat Ryan.

 

Former Gunners keeper Emiliano Martinez made good saves to keep out a Granit Xhaka free-kick in the first half and a Nicolas Pepe effort after the break.

Ryan also pulled off some decent stops, including denying Jack Grealish as Villa pushed for a second goal late in the game.

At the other end, substitute Martin Odegaard fired a good chance over the bar as Arsenal slipped to another loss, four days on from the 2-1 reverse at Wolves.

Although there was controversy surrounding the David Luiz red card at Molineux, Arteta claimed his side deserved to win this time around after dominating the game.

 

“Yeah very disappointing not to win the game obviously,” he told talkSPORT. “But we gave them a goal and another three chances, we just gave them.

“It’s not as if they earned them, we just gave them to them. And then, in the opponent’s box, we have that amount of situations and chances and if you don’t score them, it is impossible to win the game.

“So incredible; dominating the whole game and dominating every single department that you have to dominate to beat this team, but you lose again.

It’s a similar story with Wolves and it’s incredible it has happened two times in five days, but it is down to us.”

 

Luiz saw his appeal rejected for his challenge on Willian Jose, but the Gunners again felt as though chances went against them on Saturday.

Although Arteta refused to go into specifics, the Spaniard felt as though ‘many’ decisions went against his side and lamented the decisions by the officials.

“We just give the games away,” he added. “When the opponent is better, just shake hands and let’s work on it.

But when the team plays the way they played again today, you HAVE to win the game. It happened against Wolves – okay with the decision – today there were many other decisions that went against us.

 

“But still, with what you produced today, you have to win the game.”

As if to add further insult to injury, summer signing Thomas Partey limped off the field once again after enduring a frustrating start to his career in north London.

“He had a muscular issue,” Arteta confirmed. “He could not carry on playing.”

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

on

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
