Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has revealed that his side lost to Tottenham hotspurs in Sunday premier league clash due to their inability to be leather in front of goal.
Arsenal suffered their sixth defeat of the 200/21 season campaign in the North London derby.
First-half goals from Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane secured all three points for Jose Mourinho’s side, who reclaimed the premier league top position, following the 2-0 victory.
The Spaniard was full of praise for his side but was expressed his discontent with their wastefulness in front of goal.
“In terms of the performance, they did everything I asked them to do. Absolutely everything. We played the way I believe we had to get this game. You look at all the stats, they’re in our favour but at the end of the day, it’s about putting the ball in the box.
“The first situation they had from 30 yards they put it in the top corner. You have to applaud it. The second one, Thomas has to come off, he cannot fill the gap that he should be in and we get done. Just before we had an open situation to score a goal as well.
“After that, at this moment normally the team would fall and the team got better after the first one, the team got better after the second one. They tried to generate a situation, we had the chances. We had generated probably more than ever this season put the ball in the box more than ever, had the numbers there.
“But at the end of the day we have to score the goals and when they had a half-chance they scored, and at the moment we haven’t. To build something you need results.
“I take a lot of positives for the way we played, when we come here at this moment and play with the personality, the courage, the passion, the energy and the belief the boys showed. At the end it’s a football match and you have to win it, and we lost again today,” Arteta told reporters.
