Opposition View: Mikel Arteta | Southampton FC

    Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is wary of coming up against a ‘committed’ Southampton side when his side head to St Mary’s on Thursday night.

    The Gunners will head to the south coast having suffered consecutive defeats in their return to league action.

    Defeats to Manchester City and Brighton leave Arsenal just three points ahead of Saints, leaving Arteta in a cautious mood.

    “They are a very German side. A manager that has the team in pressing mode, they are really aggressive, really good on the counter-press, really good in transition, they know what they are doing.

    They all seem very committed to him and are a very dangerous team.”

    Without a win at St Mary’s since 2017, the Arsenal boss is anticipating another tough encounter.

    “I know it’s a really difficult ground to go to. I explained what the qualities of Southampton are, they are a really dangerous team.

    “They have no fear, they go for it, they really believe in what they do and they competed really well so we have to be ready and on Thursday we will be ready.”
