‘On one Condition’ Brendan Rodgers sends glowing message to Mikel Arteta
The Leicester City boss sends cheeky message to Mikel arteta
As long as their key players stay healthy, Brendan Rodgers is optimistic that Arsenal will come “very, very close” to claiming the Premier League championship.
After another spirited victory away from home, the Gunners will enter Wednesday’s encounter against Everton at the Emirates Stadium with a two-point lead over Manchester City.
Mikel Arteta’s team won three points at the King Power Stadium thanks to a goal from Gabriel Martinelli one minute into the second half. City’s victory over Bournemouth a few hours later highlighted the significance of Arsenal’s victory.
When asked if Arsenal could end their nearly 20-year title drought, Rodgers praised Arteta’s squad and praised them as an exceptional unit.
I believe they will come very near, he said. They are outperforming, and I believe they have done so throughout the season.
The scoreboard was clearly close, but their level of technical skill and football ability was higher.
With a top young goalkeeper, a strong back four, two aggressive center backs, and Zinchenko, who has performed admirably since joining the team and brings a new flavor to the game in midfield with his technical skill and strength, I believe they will come very close to winning the championship.
The two wingers are elite, especially Saka, who is a top player.
I predicted that Arsenal would finish in the top four if they kept everyone healthy last year.
“Unfortunately, they suffered injuries, and I anticipate that this year will be no different if they maintain everyone healthy.” They make an excellent combination.
While Arteta was pleased with his team’s performance against the Foxes, he cautioned that despite dominating possession, they needed to be more incisive in the closing third.
We dominated the game, we attacked frequently, and we were high up the pitch, but we weren’t able to generate enough significant chances, he said.
We need to get better at that, but we didn’t give up, and Dewsbury-Hall only had one attempt that was off-target.
We had a lot of opportunities with significant advantages, but we need to improve because in those circumstances, hitting 14, 15 shots on target will make all the difference. However, we are making progress.
