The Arsenal Manager commented after the Villa game “Those (top-four) teams don't make those mistakes. Those (top-four) teams cannot play four or five times in the first 22 games of the season with 10 men. It doesn't happen. There's not a team in the world that can sustain that. If you concede a goal early or make an error, the team has to react," said Arteta.
It would be helpful if he would explain how he intends to eliminate this imperfection.

Tonight's UEFA Europa League game v Benfica played in Rome's Olympic Stadium instead of Portugal for Covid-19 reasons resulted in a 1-1 draw.
The amount of missed chances by Aubameyang resulted in his withdrawal in the second half.

Last night's UEFA Europa League game v Benfica 2nd leg resulted in a 3-2 win and Arsenal go through 4-3 on aggregate.
The villain of the piece was their own Dani Ceballos whose input resulted in two needless goals for the opposition.
For the result to be termed "lucky" would be an injustice as they were far the better team, but it had a feeling of déjà vu about it with Steve McQueen+James Garner in the leading role.

Saturday's game at Burnley resulted in a 1-1 draw which was another two points lost. A moment of stupidity between goalkeeper and Xhaka wasn't enough (Since the start of 2016-17, Granit Xhaka has made more errors leading to goals (8) than any other outfield player in the Premier League) as VAR later on decided a blatant hand ball in the area wasn't enough for a penalty.

A very good performance last night away in Greece to Olympiacos with a 3-1 win. But again the match was marred by another stupid mistake between goalkeeper and Ceballos..
The manager stated, "Overall a really positive result but we have to stop making the errors that are costing goals because we cannot sustain that" so when is he going to do something about it?

A huge 2-1 win today against our North London rivals. All pundits stated the best team won and apart from the last ten minutes when Tottenham went down to ten men did they show any competitiveness. Strange indeed.
Well done lads. (y)(y)

Away at West Ham and what a game. Arsenal were 3-0 down inside 32 minutes caused by schoolboy defending, but what a fight back to level for 3-3.draw.

Last night's 3-0 loss at home to Liverpool was an upsetting event. They showed no fight or courage but content to sit back and let Liverpool run the game which they did very well. :mad:
The manager apologises for the team's performance but that does not win games. There are constantly players there under performing and should be moved out.

Watching yesterday evening Europa League game v Slavia Prague ending 1-1 was so disappointing. There are players at the club with no loyalty and just swan around the pitch without putting a shift in. This attitude needs eradicating, dead wood cleared out before the whole team becomes infected.

Away at Sheffield United yesterday evening and a 3-0 win with a clean sheet. It was a good performance against a bottom of the league club. Well done lads. (y)
