August 23rd, 2021 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admitted that the circumstances are “really difficult and probably unprecedented” after the loss to Chelsea and a poor start to the Premier League but insists nothing’s over yet.

Chelsea added to Arsenal’s misery in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory at the Emirates.

The Blues opened the scoring just after 15 minutes when record signing Romelu Lukaku scored his first ever goal for the team on his debut.

Reece James doubled the west Londoners’ lead just 20 minutes later and sealed a major win for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

After the match, Arteta said: “One of the difficult moments that you have to go through. The circumstances are really difficult and probably unprecedented. Feeling sorry for ourselves doesn’t help though.

“You can always do things better in a football match. In the first half we had some difficulties. It took us a long time to regain the ball in the areas we needed. When we did we looked a real threat.

“I certainly see a team that in the second half they kept trying they never gave up and their attitude was exceptional. Something that is clear is that they never gave up. Even the crowd tried to push them and we tried to fight until the end”
