"Thank You Arsenal Fans" Mikel Arteta Left Impressed After What Fans Did Last Night

Arsenal eased past Afc Wimbledon in the third round of the Carabao cup to proceed further where they will be facing Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United in the next round.

Goals from Alexander Lacazette, Emith Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah finished the job for the gunners who are starting to build a winning moment despite a very poor start to the season.

Mikel Arteta who few weeks ago was under heavy pressure to exit is now feeling more alive and a little bit less stressed with the boys putting on a good shift recently.

It was not that much of a comfortable win but a rather well crafted win that shows the growth in mentality of the squad who are starting to show they can win even when not playing at their level best.

Arteta was however more thrilled by the Arsenal fans for what they did on a Wednesday night and during his post-match conference, he dearly thanked the over 50,000 fans who turned up to watch the team play.

"To have 50,000 fans in the Carabao Cup on a Wednesday night is pretty special and it doesn’t happen in many places. Thanks for your brilliant support this evening," said Arteta.

Striker Lacazette also revealed that having the fans really helps them much in games and will appreciate if they keep turning up. 

"We are happy and we enjoy it when the fans are there. We missed them a lot during the pandemic so now that they are here, we have to give back the confidence that they give us," said Laca.
