EPL: Arteta Reveals Why Arsenal Lost To Man City Despite Being The Better Side

Arsenal failed to claim all three points to extend their lead on the Premier League table after losing to Manchester City 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Jack Grealish, and Erling Braut Haaland gave the visitors the win over the Gunners with Bukayo Saka scoring the home team’s only goal of the game.

After the match, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta reveals why his team lost the game against the defending champions.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta speaking to BBC Match of the Day: “Huge battle – a battle that, especially until we conceded second goal, we had them – we had the feeling we could beat them but we gave them three goals and the game at the end. With certain errors at this level you can’t make. The team put the level very high at the same time.

“They were playing long balls and we suffered to get out of those zones and didn’t read the situation well enough, they punished us.”

On title race: “I have more belief than I had before the game, with the performance and the level the team put in against City. They wanted to play a different game than the one we played and with the crowd we have we can do it.

“They still have it [the belief], I can sense it. They feel they can do it. The difference was in the boxes, they had three chances and they put them away. We had chances and we didn’t put them away.”
