EPL: Why Arsenal lost 2-0 to Aston Villa – Arteta

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has highlighted where his players got it wrong as they lost 2-0 to Aston Villa on Sunday.

Goals from Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins saw the Gunners fail to go back to the top of the Premier League.

Arteta, speaking to Sky Sports, said: “Two very different performances. The first half was superb, one of the best halves we have played against a top team. It should have been three or four – or more.

“We didn’t put that score line up and didn’t reflect that second half. We lacked momentum. We didn’t have the flow we had in the first half and then we conceded two very, very poor goals.

“Credit to them, in the second half we were a bit unprecise with the ball, we weren’t able to do what we did in the first half. In the end we lost it so we have to congratulate them on the points.”

Arteta’s men now have to play catch up behind leaders Manchester City in the title race.
