Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta has explained why his side lost 3-2 against Manchester United in the Premier League on Thursday night.
Arteta said Man United defeated Arsenal because the Gunners lost â€˜controlâ€™ during the Premier League fixture and conceded three goals against the host.
DAILY POST reports that Man United defeated Arsenal at Old Trafford, thanks to Bruno Fernandesâ€™s strike and a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo.
Emile Smith Rowe and Martin Odegaard did score for Artetaâ€™s men.
Speaking at his post-match press conference, Arteta said,â€œIt is what it is. If you concede three goals at Old Trafford, it is difficult to get a result.
â€œI was disappointed with the goals that we conceded, But we have come a long way since the game at Anfield. We were able to maintain higher periods for longer.
â€œWhen we were in control, we had a better structure and created chances. When it was 2-2, we needed to build momentum to get the win.
â€œThere were a lot of things that I liked in the game. I liked the behaviour of individuals.
â€œWhen you score two goals at Old Trafford, you expect to get something from the game and that is a regret, but that is our fault.
â€œWhen you see the game, you would say we deserved more, but that is what happens against this quality of opponent.â€
Arteta will now hope to lead Arsenal to victory when they take on Everton in their next game on Monday.
