Arsenal raised by the anger of injustice: Arteta


Manager of Arsenal Mikel Arteta said his side will be fueled by anger when they face Manchester City in a clash between the Premier League’s top two sides on Wednesday.

The Gunners lead City at the top of the table cut to three points at the weekend after a 1-1 draw with Brentford.

Arsenal received an apology from the refereeing body after Brentford’s penalty for failing to properly check the VAR.

“It certainly made our players, staff and fans stronger and more determined to overcome this obstacle they gave us,” said Arteta in his press conference.

“We finished the game after reviewing all the photos we got with a lot of anger and frustration because it wasn’t human error. It’s a big thing to not think and understand your job and It’s unacceptable. Arsenal have two points and that’s it. It’s irreversible.”

Arteta was part of City’s coaching staff Pep Guardiola’s help when they won back to back in 2017/18 and 2018/19.

City have won two more Premier League crowns in the past two seasons and Arteta says the trophy remains for his side.

Arsenal have a game in hand with their rivals, but haven’t won a league in 19 years.

“What they have done in the last six years, they are very important,” Arteta said.

“The way they play, the way they compete, the way they go through difficulties, for us the challenge is to get to this point.”
