Arteta delighted with the spirit of his players
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta told Sky Sports: “What I love is the spirit of these players. When you lose games you get punished and criticized but with these players I I don’t care because they are growing up. For us to win a London derby the way we did, I’m really happy too
“I told them if you want to play Champions League football you have to come to places like this and win.”
On Eddie Nketiah’s performance, Arteta added: “What I say all the time about Eddie. When you watch him in training and how humble he is all the time, good things happen. Good things happen to good people. Same with Mo Elneny and Rob Holding.”

Tuchel unhappy with the quality of the pitch
Speaking to Sky Sports after the defeat, Thomas Tuchel said: “To say the ground is difficult to play here sounds like an excuse, but it is.
“It’s a very difficult pitch we have here. It’s not in our favour. The ball bounces very awkwardly past Andreas (Christensen) when he runs to play the ball. We made the same mistake against Real Madrid.
