Premier League: for Arteta, Arsenal “took a big step forward” after the draw against City

Arsenal “took a big step forward” by standing up to Manchester City (0-0) on Sunday, said coach Mikel Arteta, describing the performance of his players, second in the Premier League, as “phenomenal”. “As you can imagine, the match was very competitive. We took a big step forward today,” the Spanish technician commented to the BBC.

“I think we had the best situations. We were very aggressive at times and managed to place the ball in good areas. The way we fought individually and collectively was phenomenal,” he said. Arsenal are the first team to not concede a league goal against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium since Crystal Palace (2-0) in October 2021, a performance which did not escape the coach.

“It was a very difficult test for us today. We wanted to win, but when you can't win, you shouldn't lose,” Arteta concluded. In front of the Sky Sports camera, French defender William Saliba used the same formula to summarize the feeling of his team.

“We can't be satisfied after a draw, but that's OK. We learned that in difficult matches, when you cannot win, you must not lose,” said the French international. “We know Manchester City are the best team in the world, we have to stay focused the whole match and that's what we managed to do well,” said the 23-year-old, named man of the match. Leader at the start of the day, Arsenal gave up their seat to Liverpool, 2-1 winner of Brighton on Sunday afternoon.
