Arsenal: Arteta Impressed by Fan Support, Fans Frustrated After This, Next Opponents Confirmed

Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta is slowly creeping his way into the hearts of the Arsenal fans after he led the Gunners to a sumptuous victory at the Emirates yesternight. 50,000 fans turned up for the match as Arsenal thrashed AFC Wimbledon by three goals to nil at the Emirates, making the atmosphere at the stadium electric throughout the 90 minutes.

In any case, Mikel Arteta should try and maintain this impressive run if he is to fully gain the support of the Arsenal fans. More than that, Arteta needs to reassure fans that his team is capable of challenging for the title by proving wrong critics who have nicknamed Arsenal a “mediocre club.” And in order to do so, back-to-back wins should be the new norm for Arsenal this season, there should be no room for excuses.

No Live Stream

Arsenal fans yesterday were left frustrated after it was announced that the Arsenal game would not be live-streamed to those in the "outside world." On Twitter, fans were eagerly searching for illegal streams on websites but to no avail at all. The EFL explained that Arsenal’s match could not be live-streamed because of the high attendance at the Emirates and also because there were a lot of other games which started concurrently with Arsenal’s.

However, a good Samaritan at the Emirates live-streamed the match for a few minutes in the fast half and after 2 minutes of starting the recording, he already had over 30,000 people signed up for his Livestream. His phone battery however died in the second half, but those who watched the match through the live stream said it was worth every minute.

Next Round

Arsenal have been drawn against Leed United FC in the Round of 16 of the Carabao Cup. The match is expected to take place in three weeks time, giving Mikel Arteta plenty of time to reorganize his team and make new strategies. Marcelo Bielsa will also be bracing himself for a tough cup tie at the Emirates but with his offensive style of football, nothing can be said to be impossible for him.
