Arsenal Must Show More Courage And Consistency — Arteta
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta can’t hide his disappointment following the Gunners 1-1 draw against Southampton in Sunday’s Premier League clash at the St Mary’s Stadium.
The North London club extended their unbeaten run to nine matches in all competitions, but Arteta was disappointed with the result of the game.
Granit Xhaka gave the league leaders the lead in the first half following a superb move that involved Bukayo Saka and Thomas Partey.
Southampton however fight back with Stuart Armstrong netting the equaliser midway through the second half.

“I have a feeling that we lost two points, especially with the way we started the game and the chances we had,” Arteta told Arsenal.com at full-time.
“When you look back at the chances, we should have come out on top.
“But we have to blame ourselves. I think the way we played in the first half and in the second half was very different, especially what we did in ball possession. We should have more courage, more consistency and be more reliable in ball possession and dominate the game better when we have total control of it.
“Today we should have won the game and sustained our level, which we haven’t done in the second half – and that we have to raise the level again.
“There are positives – if you can’t win, don’t lose it. Coming to any ground in the Premier League with the amount of games we are playing is very difficult – but we have to demand from ourselves to be better.”
