Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has slammed his boys for losing 3-1 to Brighton in the Carabao Cup third round fixture on Wednesday.
Eddie Nketiah’s goal wasn’t enough as the seagulls thrashed the gunners by 3-1, Danny Welbeck, Kaoru Mitoma and Tariq Lamptey all scored for Brighthon in the encounter.
Although, Arteta, made ten changes from Arsenal’s last game, his post-match reactions show that the former Everton and Arsenal midfielder wasn’t pleased with the outcome.
Arteta berated his boys for not making it to the next round of the competition while speaking at the post-match conference.
He said “The view is that the result doesn’t reflect what happened on the pitch I think it’s clear,” Arteta said at his post-match press conference after the game.
“In moments where we were clearly on top of the game, we didn’t take our opportunities. There was a big difference between efficiency in both areas and we paid a big price for it.
“It’s a shame for the boys because I think they really tried and we should have scored two or three in the second half. I would select the same players if I had the opportunity again.”
Arsenal have got just one game to play in the English Premier League before going on WorldCup break.
