After the game, Arsenal boss Arteta was impressed by his team’s character after a bad defeat against Liverpool. He said on the club’s website:

“It was really important to win and bounce back as you mentioned. It was a game that had different phases in the first half and we were able to change the game when we wanted, but without really threatening or hurting them enough. We lacked some urgency and some composure in the final third to deliver better balls. We didn’t hit the target enough with the attempts that we had and in the second half we had to maintain and not be impatient to lose any structure in our play because we were controlling them quite well, but we needed to threaten much more certain spaces and I think we did. Our team scored the two goals and after that, the game was in our control. “
