“I am very pleased with the performance. I’m even more pleased with the result that we needed,” said Arteta after securing his first win as manager and Arsenals second win in 16 matches. “A lot of the things I demanded and I wanted to see on the pitch actually happened today”.
The GUNNERS put on a good show at Emirates stadium with early goals from PEPE AND SOCRATIS which gave them a much needed three points and massive support from their fans which has not been happening in recent.
the new boss added “I said to the players it’s up to you – your body language, your behaviours, what you’re able to transmit to [the fans], they’re going to buy into. If it’s negative, they will be negative, if it’s positive they are willing to help you guys.
“They are here to support you and they want to see their team perform like they did today. Thank you so much to [the fans], when they are right behind them you can tell that the confidence, the things they tried and the energy they had towards the game was much better.
“The challenge is to maintain it.”
