Arteta calls for ‘aggression’
Mikel Arteta has praised his side after Arsenal’s 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace.
The Gunners boss told Match of the Day: “Very pleased, clean sheet and five goals, win the game and performance.
“I had a really good feeling after we left the stadium after Liverpool, the performance was there but the results were not.
“Today we were much more efficient in the opponents’ box particularly than the last few games. Last few games we had moments playing better than today but this is about scoring goals.
“Set pieces are a big part of us, especially against teams that want to defend deeply. It is a good way to win games.
“The success of last season was the amount of players who scored more than 10 goals and we are going to have to do that again.
“We used moments of the game we knew could exploit really, really well. The subs did really well and had a big impact. Everyone was really focused.
“This is the second part of the season we want to tackle it with a lot of aggression and motivation.
“I would like to play three days after but it is what it is! We will keep preparing and we must continue to do better and improve as a team.”
