Managers Reaction

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta: “I am really happy for the result and the performance in the match. We should have scored many more goals but today was about being consistent in everything we wanted to do in this game.” he added. “I have to defend my players, team, and club. We are the most honest. At some stages, we can even be naïve. I’m sure there was no intention to take advantage. I focus on the performance and want to talk about what we did. It’s great for any team to win before the international break.”

Watford boss, Claudio Ranieri: “We were playing very well. Everybody expected the Arsenal players to give the ball back to us. We put the ball out because there was an injury to our player. It was very strange.” he added. “It’s ok, that’s football… I’m very satisfied with our performance. In the first half, it was a very tactical match and we tried to close all the situations. Foster saved the penalty very well and we made some mistakes on the counter-attack. In the second half, after the goal Arsenal had more space but we had the chance to draw the match.”
