EPL: Arteta Expects Tough Game Against Newcastle United

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has revealed that he expects a difficult game against Newcastle in today’s Premier League clash.

Arsenal, last year’s runners-up, are second in the table, two points behind pacesetters Tottenham after seven wins and three draws in 10 games.

A much-changed Arsenal team suffered a chastening 3-1 midweek defeat at West Ham in the League Cup, on the same evening that Newcastle, also with multiple changes, beat Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford.

Arteta in a chat with TribalFootball, said St James’ Park was one of the “toughest places” to win.

“We’ve done it and there is nothing new to it, we know what we’re expecting,” he said. “It is very clear what they do, what their strengths are, and where the opportunities are for us. We will try to take the game where we want.”

The Spaniard said Newcastle boss Eddie Howe deserved huge credit for the job he has done since taking over late in 2021, weeks after a Saudi-backed consortium bought the club.

“I think he has transformed the club, the environment, the atmosphere and what he created in the team as well,” he added.

“They have such a belief in what they do and that’s a huge compliment to him.”

Personal life

Arteta was born 26 March 1982 in San Sebastián, in the Basque Country of Spain. He is multilingual, and is fluent in Spanish, Basque, Catalan and English. He also speaks French, Italian and Portuguese.

He is married to Argentine-Spanish actress, television host, model and former Miss Spain, Lorena Bernal. The couple have three children: Gabriel (born 2009), Daniel (born 2012) and Oliver (born 2015).
