“Yet still, you get two more chances to score, but you don’t; that is the game’s narrative. Despite everything we did to earn a comfortable victory, we only receive one point. “.

According to Arteta, three replacements had a big impact on the game’s texture. All three of the replacements, he claimed, “changed the game.”. “Fabio [Vieira] was involved in everything we produced, and I am really happy about that.
