After Arteta benched a €60 million star in Chelsea’s “lucky win” over Wolves last weekend, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino called Arteta a “Baby coach.” “Arteta hasn’t coached a big club before, and that is why he keeps dropping this guy to the bench in every game. i hope he tries it against Chelsea when we meet.”

After Arteta benched a €60 million star in Chelsea's "lucky win" over Wolves last weekend, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino called Arteta a "Baby coach." "Arteta hasn't coached a big club before, and that is why he keeps dropping this guy to the bench in every game. i hope he tries it against Chelsea when we meet."

Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, has slammed Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, calling him a “baby coach” for the way he handled a star player worth €60 million during their most recent game against Wolves. Pochettino’s comments fuel the flames ahead of the two teams’ impending match against each other amid a backdrop of mounting tension between them.

The player in question, whose identity is still unknown, has been left off of Arteta’s starting lineup a lot, which has angered the Chelsea team. Pochettino voiced his displeasure with Arteta’s choice, implying that the manager of Arsenal lacks the tactical nous and experience necessary to make the best use of such a priceless asset.

Paul Merson, a former Arsenal player, has added his voice to the discussion and urged Arteta to use Kai Havertz as a central striker. Havertz can play a variety of positions on the field due to his versatility, even though Arteta primarily uses him in midfield. Merson thinks Havertz would be a great addition to lead Arsenal’s offensive line because of his deft movement and knack for scoring goals.

Havertz may move up to a more senior position at a time when Arsenal is having trouble finding a consistent goal scorer. Although Gabriel Jesus was initially Arteta’s top pick, his injury history and inconsistent play have cast doubt on his suitability for the part. Merson supports Havertz’s inclusion as Arsenal’s starting striker due to his recent goal-scoring displays.

The talk about Havertz’s position at Arsenal is intensified by rumors that the team may make a move for a new striker in the next transfer windows. Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen are two names that have been floated as possible targets, suggesting Arteta wants to increase his offensive options. Arteta, though, is unwavering in his support for the current team and emphasizes the necessity of working with the players he has available.

The focus is still primarily on Arteta and his management of the team’s personnel and tactical choices while tensions between Arsenal and Chelsea continue to simmer. Arsenal supporters are excited to see if Arteta will take the advice of analysts and make tactical changes to address their goal-scoring concerns, with Havertz’s role at the center of the debate.
