Arteta hails Saka, others for earning a point at Bournemouth

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says he’s pleased with the performance of his side following the boxing day 1-1 draw with Bournemouth at the vitality stadium.

Captain Emerick Aubameyang scored the equalizer after Dan Goslin had given the Cherries the lead in the first half.


Speaking after the game, Arteta said he’s satisfied with the response of his boys and hope to build on it in the next game.


“I’m very pleased with some of the things I’ve seen in terms of attitude, character, the passion we showed, and the fight and the spirit the team showed,” said Arteta.


“[It was] spot on, probably better than I expected over 90 minutes.


“A lot of things that happened in the game we prepared, I think they understood them and they tried to take them on board and we liked the final product at the end,” he said.


Arsenal has now picked eleven points from losing position this season, more than any team and they will take on Chelsea on Sunday.
