Mikel Arteta: I love my players more than ever

Arsenal did not manage to achieve a positive result against Southampton and they equalized in the last minutes (3:3). Mikel Arteta's team is aware of how much this result will affect everyone, but the Spaniard is not disappointed with his team.

Arteta is proud of the reaction of his team who, despite the fact that they lost 3-1, managed to reach 3-3. "Obviously unhappy with the result, We made it very difficult again for ourselves but mistakes are part of football but the way we reacted I love my players more than ever.
It is incredible, we were on the way back, we conceded again with a sloppy goal but in the end we should have won the game.

We created enough chances and opportunities but it didn't happen and we are disappointed."- he said, as quoted by eurosport.com

Southampton and England

Southampton is also a team that is fighting for survival at this moment and every point is important to them.

There is no team in England that cannot match you, and they knew what could await them. Still, in a way, Arsenal showed the right mentality. "You can't concede three goals in this league, if you concede three like we did in a sloppy way it is very difficult to win matches.
This young team reacts in a way that is incredible, when it is against the odds but the chances they created and the spirit they had it was a joy to watch.

The message is clear that I love them." Arteta believes that his team must do better defensively if they really want to win the title. They missed Saliba, one of the more important players.
"We are down and they are more willing than anybody to win it.

You can see that spirit and fight in the dressing room but it is clear we have to do defensively things better." The next match with Manchester City will be the most important for the London team. They will have to do their best to get a positive result. Both teams are aware of the importance of such a match.
