“He was everywhere on the pitch yesterday, he was smarter than Havertz and Gabriel Jesus, he left the stadium with a standing ovation after a 9/10 performance” – Arsenal legend Thierry Henry was ecstatic as he showered Arsenal’s “Mr 9/10” star, who stole the show against Brighton yesterday, with accolades.
Against Havertz and Jesus, Arteta’s real hero was Arsenal’s “Mr 9/10.”
Yesterday at the Emirates, Arsenal easily won their seventh Premier League match of the year.
Arsenal recovered from their weekend’s 1-0 loss to Aston Villa with a crucial, if tense, 2-0 victory over Brighton at the Emirates this afternoon.
Ten minutes after the half, a header from a corner by Gabriel Jesus gave Mikel Arteta’s team the lead. Arsenal was let down by their poor finishing, but an equalizer from Kai Havertz in the 87th minute sealed the win.
