Martin Keown on why the Wolves’ victory is a “turning point” for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown said that the 2-0 victory over the Wolves is a “turning point” for both Mikel Arteta and Arsenal.

Midfield goals from Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette gave the Gunners a crucial victory in their quest for European football next season.

Arteta was appointed manager of Arsenal in December, but had several months in his first managerial role.

However, the victory over the wolves was Arsenal’s fourth in a row in all competitions.

And speaking in Match of the Day, Keown can only see good signs for the future.

“They seem much more resolute,” he said.

“I am immensely impressed with Arteta, I think it is the first type of statement in which I think this is the manager now to carry on Arsenal.

“It is certainly a turning point, the tactic, he had two days to prepare while Nuno knows this system perfectly and Arsenal was magnificent in the way he dealt with this problem today.

“Everyone worked hard, they are not too compact. It is not easy to learn to play with a new system, but everyone knew their roles and responsibilities.

“They were taking over the bodies, Mustafi is growing in confidence and knows his role, they were recovering bodies.

“I really liked the way they worked together as a team, they were always in touch with each other. There was no room for wolves and they could simply dry carefully behind. This was probably as good as a performance I have seen. Today, as a group, it was the best performance under Arteta. “

Arsenal are hoping the team will maintain their level of performance when they face another crucial game against Leicester City on Tuesday as they try to bridge the gap between the top four.
