Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has reacted to his side’s narrow win against Brentford on Saturday in the Premier League.
The game which ended in a 1-0 win saw the Gunners pick all three points thanks to a late goal from Kai Havertz.
When asked if Havertz’s goal had more significance than the one against Bournemouth, Arteta said:
“Yes, but I think that’s the beauty of it. When things come easy, you don’t value them.
If things would have come easier today, he’s [probably] not getting the reception that he got; everybody hugging him and cuddling him, and telling him how much we love him, and it’s for a reason.
It’s because of the way he behaves in difficult moments and he’s an example for all of us to do what you have to do when you have difficulties, and he’s a great example for the team, and we cannot be happier that a big player like him wins the game for the team.”
