Carabao Cup: It’s a shame – Arteta slams Arsenal players
Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, said that it is unfortunate for his team that they were unable to score three goals in the second half of Wednesday's Carabao Cup third-round match against Brighton.
At the Emirates Stadium, Arteta witnessed Brighton defeat Arsenal in the Carabao Cup match.
Three goals from Danny Welbeck, Kaoru Mitoma, and Tariq Lamptey ensured the visitors eliminated Arteta’s side from the Carabao Cup, as Eddie Nketiah’s goal was not enough for Arsenal.
Arteta, who made ten changes from Arsenal’s last game, said during his post-match press conference: “The view is that the result doesn’t reflect what happened on the pitch; I think it’s clear,” Arteta said at his post-match press conference after the game.
“In moments where we were clearly on top of the game, we didn’t take our opportunities." There was a big difference in efficiency in both areas, and we paid a big price for it.
“It’s a shame for the boys because I think they really tried and we should have scored two or three in the second half." "I would select the same players if I had the opportunity again.”
