Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta reveals how his side managed to grab a win at Everton for the first time in six years.
Arsenal dug deep to secure a narrow but well-deserved win over struggling Everton at Goodison Park.
Mikel Arteta, speaking to Sky Sports after Everton game: “We talked about it, this is the challenge. For six years we haven’t won here and there are a few reasons for it.
“We took the game into the areas we wanted for long and we were really solid. We gave very, very little away.
Mikel Arteta added: “It’s how you do things and the input you do in every single action. I think we played an incredible game, we kept them quiet and created many, many chances.
“The first (disallowed) goal, as well, should be allowed. We dominated the game and are extremely happy to go away with a win and a clean sheet.”
Arteta on the use of short corners: “Obviously they are very strong in the box so we need alternatives.
It’s about creating a story in the game and the players have to sense when is the best moment to do it.”
Arteta on Trossard’s goal: “Great finish. He did it in the week with Belgium as well.
“It’s what we need – the players who came in did very well, the subs that came on did very well. We need everyone on their toes and we fully trust them.”
Arsenal summer addition Leandro Trossard scored the only goal which led to the Gunners maintaining their winning start in the PL this season.
Leandro Trossard to Sky Sports: “We knew and we wanted to win the game.
“It’s always a hard game, they give you a hard time but we defended the box well, got a couple of chances and took one of those chances.”
“It’s always nice to help your team, especially with a winning goal.
“I think it’s a great action. I called B (Saka) and he saw me with a perfect lay-off. It went in perfectly and I’m very happy.
“I’ve been practising all my life on both feet and you can see it helps you. It’s so helpful if you’re good on both feet – you can go both ways and score off either.”
