Arsenal: Arteta and the case of the vanishing Chelsea blues
Arsenal not confident for Chelsea clash, Arteta says
Arsenal not confident for Chelsea clash, Mikel Arteta concedes
Arsenal are fresh from defeat to Dynamo Zagreb. They take on Chelsea this Saturday. It’s pretty incredible for the Arsenal captain to do down his side’s chances, especially when they are higher than Chelsea in the Premier League table.
It is, of course, all balls. What he actually said was:
“It doesn’t help, before a big game. We haven’t managed to win three games in a row, which is very important. We had two in the pocket [after Newcastle and Stoke] and wanted a good result in Zagreb. We have to react quickly. We’re quite good at that. We’ve done it in the past. Saturday will be a very different game. It’s a big game, we have to react. We’re upset and we have to react. Sometimes when you have disappointment in the body it’s good because you find a good reaction.”
In other words: Arenal confident ahead of Chelsea match, says Arteta.
And he has more to say:
“First we have to recover the best we can and start to prepare for the game because we only have 48 hours. It is a new day, a time to be positive and take good things into the next game because we can beat Chelsea.”
So when did Arteta concede anything?
