In this round of the Premier League, Arsenal lost 0-1 away to Manchester City, and the Premier League suffered a 7-game losing streak against the Blue Moon. After the game, coach Arteta accepted an interview with reporters and said he was still proud of the team's performance.
Arsenal created several offensive opportunities in the game, but failed to grasp the opportunity to score. Arteta said: "Today we created some good opportunities, maybe two or three opportunities. But if we want to win such a game, we must turn the opportunity into a goal."
Although the team regretted the loss, Arteta still expressed pride for the team because the players showed their desire to win. "It's a pity that we didn't do it, but other than that, I am very proud of the belief that the team showed. Over the past four years, I have seen many teams visiting the Etihad Stadium. Our performance like this is very difficult."
"In general, I am very proud. If we have to lose a game, I would rather lose the game like this. I can get a lot of positive things in this game, but anyway, I hate losing."
Holding was shortlisted for the team before, but he was injured during the warm-up. In the end, David Luiz replaced Holding in the starting lineup. After the game, Arteta revealed Holding’s injury: “The players must be ready for the game at any time. We all know that it’s possible for players to get injured during the warm-up. We don’t know the specifics of Holding yet. What was the injury, but he was no longer able to participate in the game, so we sent Luis. I think David Luiz’s performance was really good today. He focused on the game."
Holding之前曾入围球队，但在热身期间他受伤。最后，大卫·路易斯（David Luiz）在首发阵容中取代了Holding。比赛结束后，阿尔塔塔（Arteta）透露了霍丁（Holding）的受伤情况：“球员必须随时准备比赛。我们都知道，球员在热身过程中可能会受伤。我们尚不清楚Holding的具体信息。受伤是什么，但他不再能够参加比赛，所以我们派了路易斯。我认为David Luiz今天的表现非常出色。他专注于游戏。”
