Mikel Arteta has high praise for his team and says that Friday night’s win against Aston Villa shows the level they can play at.
The Gunners blew away the Villains with a superb attacking performance, and the manager was excited to see how they responded after a disappointing display on Monday evening.
“I really enjoyed watching them play and the way they started right from the beginning,” Arteta told Arsenal Media.
“I always said the way they were in the dressing room after Palace, I think that was when we started to win this game. They weren’t happy with some moments we had in that game and they know they have more ability, more quality to do it.
“We talked about it, they had a great reaction and they know that the age is not going to be an excuse. We cannot change it. We are the youngest team in the league and we can change other things, we can improve other things and it has to happen now. Today they showed the level that they can play and I think the fans enjoyed it.”
