Arsenal 1:0 Manchester City – Premier League
This saw the top two from last season face off early in the campaign. A solitary goal from Gabriel Martinelli was enough to seal three points for the hosts – albeit with the help of a deflection from Nathan Ake.
Arteta won against his former side for the first time in the Premier League since joining The Gunners.
“A great feeling obviously, you could sense it’s been so many years without beating them and today we have beaten in my opinion without a question of a doubt the best team in the world, and we’ve done it in a great way,” the Spaniard told the club media.
“There were moments we had to suffer, but as well moments we showed real determination, desire and belief to beat them, so really happy.
“Certainly sends a message to the team, keep believing in what they are doing. They are a fantastic group of players.
“The way they try, the understanding, the chemistry that they have between them you sense it and you need it to beat that, today again really proud. I was proud on Wednesday when we lost the game, and I am really proud again today as well to be part of that team.” He spoke.
