Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta compares playing Leeds to going to the dentist

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta compares playing Leeds to going to the dentist

In his programme notes for the FA Cup third round tie, Aubameyang took time to clear the speculation regarding his future and stressed that he is committed to taking the club back to their glory days.

The Gunners were outplayed for much of the first half as Sky Bet Championship leaders Leeds showed no stage fright at the Emirates Stadium.

Bielsa though is unwilling to draw the conclusion that his side are ready for the Premier League based on the game and was quick to recall how Manchester United thrashed his team in pre-season.

"It is robust. They make it actually exhausting". They are a great team and what they've built is powerful.

Swansea City are the only team in the Championship top 15 with a worse goals-per-game ratio than Leeds.

Arteta was removed from happy with Arsenal's first-half displaying, nonetheless, admitting he let his gamers realize it through the interval.

"I was not happy with the first 30, 35 minutes, how we started the game, how we approached the game", he said.

"We wanted to beat them and win the match", said Bielsa.

"What they have achieved and to do it consistently with three days with those players. And as well, how can they react when they want to".

"There are many factors, some we can not control, but at the moment everything is OK and not the time for me to change things in place because I haven't seen real things to make the decisions. They've gone out and given their all, every player should do that every time no matter who they are playing for and the supporters will back you".

"I tried to tell them exactly what they were going to face and after 32 minutes we had won one duel, I think".

"Then your body and your mind try to relax a little for a day or two".

"We are not in a position to relax because we are not good enough to relax", Arteta - who last month replaced sacked compatriot Unai Emery - added. We need to be united more than ever.

'But why happened at half-time is useful for me, at least I know they can react and respond.
