Arsenal defeated AFC Wimbledon in the EFL CUP on Wednesday night. Goals from Alexander Lacazette, Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah secured a 3-0 victory. We take a look at two Crucial Decisions Mikel Arteta Made Tonight.
1. Giving Opportunities The Frienge Players: Mikel Arteta named a strong starting XI and gave opportunities to some first-team players who have struggled for game time in the Premier League this season. The Arsenal boss could have named a youthful team but decided to go give opportunities to some first team players and it was a wise decision from the manager.
2. Resting Key Players: Arteta rested players such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ben White, Nicholas Pepe, and Granit Xhaka. The Gunners Will host Tottenham at the weekend and resting key players was another good decision by the manager.
Arsenal have now won their last three games and have kept three clean sheets after their poor start to the season.
Surely, Mikel Arteta deserves some credit for their recent performances.
