Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta admits they’re chasing three points at Champions League opponents Sevilla tonight.
The Gunners are in Seville on the back of defeat at Lens in their last group outing.
Arteta said, “Sevilla react in a really strong and fast way, great. Let’s enjoy a great football atmosphere, there’s nothing better than playing here and I just hope that tomorrow we can just talk about football and enjoy that atmosphere.
“Lessons after the match against Lens? In the Champions League you can’t give anything away. We need to understand why this is happening and how the match went away, but we put a lot of our effort into it.
“We didn’t deserve that result.”
Arteta initially started out playing as a number 10 in the Barcelona youth system, and was later shifted to the position of a “pivot” or defensive midfielder, as he was thought to be a player in the mould of Pep Guardiola.
He was rated as the sixth most effective player in the Premier League in 2006–07 by the official player ratings system the Actim Index. Arteta returned to his original deeper midfield role at Arsenal. in which he excelled as his team’s playmaker, due to his technique, skill, vision, passing, awareness, and tactical intelligence.
His total of 12 league assists in the 2006–07 season was third to Cesc Fàbregas and Cristiano Ronaldo. With 100 fouls committed against him in the same season, he was the most fouled player in the Premier League.
