Arteta on the draw with Anderlecht

Mikel Arteta celebrates scoring his penalty against Anderlecht

Mikel Arteta spoke to the media after the 3-3 draw with Anderlecht. This is what he had to say:

on what happened at 3-0…I don't know. We cannot afford to make that many mistakes and to concede three goals after we went 3-0 up. It's just not good enough. I'm very disappointed - we missed a great opportunity to finish the job today. It's not good.

on what the catalyst was…I don't know. Even with the first goal, you have a two-goal lead at home and we know what we're playing for. It was a massive day for us to finalise the group stages, and we need to analyse the mistakes and what happened in the second half, because it's not at the level required at this club.

on blowing chances of winning group…As well. That's the main aim when you start the competition. We've thrown everything away today. We have another two chances still, but you can't miss your chances in the Champions League, because every team has qualities and you can see what happened today.
