Arteta tells Arsenal players to keep their cool

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said his players must learn to control their emotions after they reacted angrily following an injury to goalkeeper Bernd Leno in last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by Brighton.

Neal Maupay scored a late winner to give relegation-threatened Albion a vital three points and condemn Arsenal to their second defeat since the Premier League restart, leaving Arteta’s side languishing in 10th and 11 points off the Champions League places.

Maupay was surrounded by Arsenal players on the final whistle – Leno had pointed at him as he was stretchered off the pitch in the first half after appearing to suffer a serious knee injury following a clash with the forward.

Midfielder Matteo Guendouzi had to be pulled away after placing his hands around his fellow Frenchman’s throat.

Maupay said the Arsenal players should learn about “humility” but Arteta disagreed with that remark, saying his young squad needed to show cooler heads.

“When we show frustration we have to show it in the right way,” said Arteta.
