The action match EPL as Arsenal pays West Ham and in favour of The Gunners which scores 2-0 at home in the Emirates stadium, as fans celebrate Arsenal’s victory.
Arsenal beat West Ham United in today’s London derby at the Emirates Stadium, it was a big win for Mikel Arteta’s aide as they closed in on Chelsea and entered top four spot.
Arsenal held on against West Ham and ended up snatching all three points. Mikel Arteta made some decisive moves in today’s match and it completely changed Arsenal’s game play. Here are the two mistakes Mikel Arteta avoided.
Gabriel Martinelli has really been at his best since he replaced Bukayo Saka weeks ago, the Brazilian earned his place in the first team and has been delivering ever since.
He scored the opening goal for Arsenal in today’s match, not just that he made a positive impact in today’s game. Mikel Arteta had Nicolas Pepe start on the bench while Gabriel Martinelli saw more playing time.
Nicolas Pepe hasn’t really been involved in Mikel Arteta’s first team squad in recent games, the Ivorian might have lost his place in the first team.
It was the right decision to play Gabriel Martinelli ahead of him, besides Nicolas Pepe wouldn’t be more productive from the left hand side. It will be difficult for Nicolas Pepe to get back into the first team as Bukayo Saka has already occupied his natural position.
Mikel Arteta played Martin Odegaard in the attacking midfield position in today’s match, the Norwegian played just behind Alexandre Lacazette. In recent matches Martin Odegaard played in center midfield but Mikel Arteta changed his role in today’s match.
Starting Martin Odegaard ahead of Emile Smith-Rowe was actually a smart move by Mikel Arteta. Emile Smith-Rowe has been on a terrific form but Martin Odegaard always delivers more for the team.
