Stunned, Arteta admits that Newcastle dominated Arsenal


The Gunners needed a win at St. James’s Park on Monday to return over tougher rivals Tottenham to fourth place on the last day of the Premier League season.

But Ben White scored an own goal in the second half, and Bruno Guimarães secured the victory of the “Forty”, doubling the advantage in five minutes of normal playing time.

Edins Howe’s team dominated Arsenal’s Tyneside, which ensured that Spurs will leave on Monday at Norwich City, knowing that the score will definitely be enough to finish in the top four, given that the difference of swords at “gunners” is much bigger.

Arteta’s men have no chance of catching Chelsea, who are in third place, and seem destined to play in the Europa League next season before meeting Everton, who face relegation this weekend.

The head coach of the “gunners” was surprised by such a poor performance of his team, when so many on the line.

He said: “Newcastle deserved the match and was much better than us. We had nothing in the game.

“They were much better in every department: in fights, with second goals. We are bad with the ball and didn’t defend properly

“A lot happened at night, with replacements due to injuries, but that’s no excuse, Newcastle deserved to win the match because it was much better than us from the start. They were much better than us in all that football. The match should to be on top ”.

Arteta says such a tasteless discovery was hard to accept.

“True, we could not cope with the game we had to play here. We tried to change some things, and it did not improve,” – added the Spaniard.

“We had moments when we looked better at the beginning of the second half, we understood better what we needed to do, but then the performance was so bad and the goals we scored were very bad.

“It’s unfortunate that Newcastle were 10 times better than us and totally deserved the match.Performance was far from the level we should be at if we want to play in the Champions League.

“I’m incredibly disappointed. Our team now has question marks in many positions because of the injuries and deviations we had, but that’s no excuse. We weren’t in the races today. It’s really very painful.

It was in our hands, and today it is not in our hands. We have to beat Everton and wait for Norwich to beat Spurs. In football there is always a chance and you have to be there just in case chance to show up “.
