Arteta: I love Arsenal’s attacking mentality

Mikel Arteta was full of praise for the Arsenal squad’s attacking prowess following yet another thrashing as they sent home Newcastle United with a 4-1 scoreline.

Arsenal is now six wins out of six in the Premier League, with Arteta’s men putting four past Newcastle United. However, former academy product Joe Willock managed to return a goal with a brilliant header late in the game.

Sven Botman opened the scoreline as he erred his way to their own goal but Havertz, Saka, and Kiwior capitalized on Botman’s mistake making it four for the Gunners. Arsenal have now scored an incredible 25 goals in the last 6 matches.

This has prompted Mikel Arteta’s praise for Arsenal’s winning mentality and individual brilliance of his players.

Arteta: Arsenal are flowing!

Asked what has clicked in a run that included 6-0 and 5-0 away wins at West Ham and Burnley, respectively, before beating Newcastle, Arteta said: “We’re in a good moment. Players are performing individually, it is not any secret.

“Things are flowing. We’re scoring goals in different ways and especially we want more. When we score one, we want two, or three, or four. I love that mentality from the team.

“We train every day the best possible way and look after ourselves. First of all though, belief. Belief in yourself that you can improve and always get better. Also getting players back.

“The more players we have back, the more competition there will be in the team, the more alternatives to impact the game. Especially we have to make sure we believe we can do it.”

Jorginho made a comeback to the Arsenal lineup for the match against Newcastle and delivered a standout performance, earning the title of man of the match. Despite his consistent impressive displays throughout the season, the Italy midfielder was only among the substitutes in the game in Portugal.

“He’s a top player,” added Arteta. “Especially when opponents have certain behaviours and set-ups, the way I imagine the game, he was going to have a big impact.

“After, you have to do it at this level. When he’s not playing consistently, credit to him because he was magnificent again.”
