After Arsenal lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United, despite dominant the possession and chances, midfielder Mikel Arteta says he is in shock at how the game went away from them, reports sky
“I am shocked and frustrated because we did not deserve this result. I think we played our best game this season in terms of what we demand of ourselves – the quality in the way we attacked, how we won the ball back, how consistent we were throughout, the amount of chances we created. It’s not fair for the players and the fans. How can I explain the result? I can’t.”
Arsenal did everything but score in the first-half, with the likes of Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck coming close. But their wastefulness in front of goal cost them as United took a surprise lead. It went from bad to worse as a quick counter attack led to Wayne Rooney being put through and finishing with aplomb to double their lead late on. The Gunners pulled a goal back, but it was nothing but consolation.
With United only having a couple of shots on target in the game, the Arsenal players were in disbelief that they lost again.
