The Gunners who had a sloppy start in EPL since the return of football after the coronavirus break made sure they proved that they were still the boss of the FA Cup after Aubameyang double strike sent Man City packing.
Still being fresh from beating Liverpool, Arteta couldn't hold his joy after the defeat during his interview after the match. He praised Aubameyang for his wonderful performance after acknowledging his opponent's team as the best in Europe in terms of the way they play. He also expressed concern about their fans not being able to enjoy the moment with them as they could have loved watching the team play.
In his own words from an after-match interview he said:
"I'm extremely happy and [I'm] proud about our players and I'm very sad that we cannot enjoy this moment with our fans as they could enjoy watching the team play and achieve the finals"
"Absolutely that's (a gritty performance) what you need against this team. You have to try to give the best when you have the opportunities make the most of them (as we had) because when you have the defence put everybody on the line. It really went organized you know how it is for me its [Manchester City] the best team in Europe the way they play 'positionally,' but we did our job," he added.
"There's a great chemistry between them and they really believe in what we are trying to do and you can sense that. And they themselves they've done it, I went on the pitch and congratulations for them."
In conclusion he praised Aubameyang for his performance and also admitted that they went away with few mistakes from gaining possession in the first half of the game.
