Arteta leaves Guardiola’s shadow
Mikel Arteta begins to show why he is so highly rated by Pep Guardiola and good form allows him to emerge from the shadow of the manager of Manchester City.
Arsenal’s impressive 2-0 victory against the Wolves marked a fourth consecutive victory in all competitions, with the Gunners charging late for European places.
As James Benge writes, however, it is the smallest details of Arteta’s management that prove the most fascinating part of Arsenal’s turnaround in form. More than anything, it could just show that Arteta is the man to move the club forward in an increasingly difficult situation.
The Arsenal boss told football.london that an obvious advantage of playing behind closed doors was that he could give instructions to his players, which would not be possible with 60,000 fans in the stadium.
Therefore, such an environment allows him to convey his message to his players and, in turn, show the developments of the system and the results of the team.
Wright responds to the wonders of Arsenal by signing new deals
Arsenal legend Ian Wright praised Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli after the paid men committed to their long-term future with the Gunners this week.
Both aged 18, the duo are considered to be exciting prospects in North London and players who can become crucial players under Arteta.
Saka confirmed this on Saturday with his first league goal for the club and Wright only had positive things to say on young people.
“I’m thrilled for him, a fantastic week for Arsenal with the signing of Saka, the signing of Gabriel Martinelli, in talks with Aubameyang,” said Wright.
“The way we play is very encouraging, the arrival of Saka was magnificently guided.
“It is simply brilliant to see. “
