Mikel Arteta has hailed his side’s attitude as they put their disappointment at their European exit to one side to beat West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Nicolas Pepe and Willian sealed the win against the Baggies, and afterwards our manager praised the team’s performance.
“It was a needed victory,” Arteta told Arsenal.com. “It took us two days to get through the disappointment from Thursday but we had to show the real attitude today and the desire to win the remaining few games.
“I think we've done that and had periods where we were really positive in attacks. We created many chances and scored three wonder goals. But then as well when we conceded the goal, we looked nervous. I think we should do better.
“After losing, all the time you have to put it right and win because then it boosts your confidence and stops a lot of negativity that can surround the team as well. It's the best medicine to win football matches.”
