Mikel Arteta: Arsenal need to find a way after missing 'huge' opportunity

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta believes that the team needs to find a way to win as they fell to their third consecutive loss in the Premier League. Despite having 23 shots, the Gunners failed to score and ended up losing 1-0 to a Jan Bednarek goal. A win would have taken them level on points with their North London rivals Tottenham in fourth place.

“It certainly has and we need to find a way to win football matches. What we can do is play as well as possible to get the team as close as possible to winning football matches – today we’ve done that again. The stats will say, ‘How the hell have we lost that game?’ but the reality is we lost it,” Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said. “It is difficult to explain because this is football, not basketball. In any other sport, you win the game very comfortably. I can’t remember a game Arsenal have played this season [where we have] created more and better. But the result in the end is what we need to be where we have to be. If we’re not able to do that we’re not going to be there.”

“At the end of the day it’s decided in the boxes, they scored one goal, we didn’t for that amount of time we spent around the box, the clear-cut chances we had, we didn’t put them in the goal because they have an exceptional goalkeeper today, and because we didn’t have enough quality to break them down,” he added. “It’s what we have. The players haven’t done it in this league. World-class players have been in the league for 10 years. I am the first one to defend them, to support them, you see how they tried. The only way to do it is to insist. What happened today might happen next week or the next month.”
