Arteta said that the team has been struggling with the results. However, the win over Chelsea handed a major boost to the club, and coming to Amex stadium to secure another win was massively important. Arteta also insisted that he’s equally proud AMD happy for the club.
Arteta also said that the best medicine is winning. The picture looks much better with it. It’s a different world with different stories. For Arteta, the one year tenure at arsenal has been a real challenger. But the manager is happy with the people around him.
Regarding Bukayo Saka’s injury during the Brighton win. Arteta is hopeful that it is not the serious one. The England international who once again named man of the match limped as he took the great challenge.
