he thanked the fans for their presence and support. The Gunners, who haven’t been able to gain a win in their last a few Premier League games, welcomed back their audience after a long wait due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Arteta talked about the impact the presence of fans had on their game, saying:

 "They made a very big contribution. We had 2,000 but it felt like a lot more. They were really supportive with the team, they were very encouraging to the team."

"I think the lads were saying here it makes a huge difference to feel that encouragement and support from them. Thank you so much to them for coming and supporting the team.”

When asked about the advantage of having supporters in their stadium, the Spanish coach replied:

"Probably. This sport without fans is completely different.”

"The players lose a bit of purpose and emotion. We are here to entertain and make the fans enjoy. When they are able to transmit that it gets directly to the players."

For their upcoming match Arsenal will look forward to meeting their opponent


with the hope of winning the game.
