“You want to go 100mph”
Poetry from Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta ahead of this contest. Not quite up there with Eric Cantona’s famous “seagulls” analogy but I like it.
This one relates to the Gunners being unable to show as much free-flowing, attacking football as they did last season.
They do, however, boast the best defence in the division.
In response, Arteta said: “The satisfaction is where we are. We have to find a way to be where we want to be, and this is exactly where we want to be.
“It’s not going to be as fluent, it’s not going to be as hectic, because there is no space to run. When you are sitting in traffic, you want to go 100mph, but I have three buses and 55 taxis around me, so it’s tricky.
“We need to get where we want to get to and in order to do that we have to be really solid – and I think we’ve been really solid so far.”
(Yes, that really was the best picture I could find)
