Arsenal’s football when 2-0 up vs Leicester is going viral after previous Arteta comments

Mikel Arteta’s side beat Leicester 2-0 on Sunday to move back up to fourth. They’re ahead of Manchester United, West Ham and Wolves despite having three matches in hand. They’re also six points above Spurs having played one match fewer.

In other words, a top-four finish is now theirs to lose.

The Gunners are in fantastic form having won five matches in a row.

Their latest – the 2-0 victory over Leicester – was just so comfortable.

“I was pleased with the understanding of what we had to do. When they started to overload in certain areas, we understood how we had to resolve that,”.

Thomas Partey gave them an 11th-minute lead with a header from Gabriel Martinelli’s corner. And the match was effectively wrapped up with Alexandre Lacazette’s penalty with half an hour remaining.

And in that remaining half an hour, Arsenal were in total control. They passed the ball around with ease and gave Leicester absolutely no hope of a late fightback.

In contrast, last week, Arsenal tried their best to throw away all three points against Watford. Having taken an early lead, they allowed Watford to equalise minutes later. Then when 3-1 up with a few minutes remaining, there was a nervy finish another letting Moussa Sissoko pull a goal back.

After the match, Arteta wasn’t impressed with how his side controlled the game at Vicarage Road.

“We have to show that maturity, understanding and capacity to control the game how we wanted to,” he said.
