Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta demands Arsenal improvement
Mikel Arteta wants to see his side improve despite his side winning six matches on the trot.
Arsenal played Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League and after a hard-earned victory, Mikel Arteta demands that his team must improve if they really want to make a statement and win something this season.
Bukayo Saka’s 24th-minute goal sealed the victory for the Gunners and they are now on course for a silverware this season.
“I’m really happy with the win against a team that has won the last 14 here at home,” the Spaniard told BT Sport.
“We were expecting a really tough night here, and we made a lot of changes again, but I’m delighted to find a way to win. To do that under any circumstances is a real positive for me and the team.
“They are really fast and the turnovers and giving away of the ball that you don’t usually expect. The ball was leaping, and it was out of your feet, and you give it away and the game becomes so fast.
“I’m happy, but at the same time we have to improve a lot.”
Saka made it four goals for the season with his winner, but Arteta wants more from the 21-year-old.
“He can become much better,” Arteta added. “He had moments in the game where he was really good and then moments he can improve and demand more of himself, especially defensively.
“There were moments where we allowed their left full-back to progress the play and break our press too easily. There are a lot of things to improve.”
“Today there were moments where we had to suffer, and we lost too many duels in the middle of the park,” he said. “But the way the boys are trying and their hunger to win is there, and you can notice that.”
