As Kai Havertz explains his “external” problems, Mikel Arteta is moved by Arsenal’s gesture to him.

As Kai Havertz explains his “external” problems, Mikel Arteta is moved by Arsenal’s gesture to him.

Arsenal, led by Mikel Arteta, demonstrated their Premier League title credentials on Saturday by defeating struggling Bournemouth 4-0 and closing the gap on Manchester City to one point.

 

Mikel Arteta claims that his team’s decision to let Kai Havertz take a penalty in the 4-0 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday “won his heart.”.

Bukayo Saka and Ben White’s headers, as well as penalties from Martin Odegaard and Kai Havertz, helped the Gunners win the game.

As a result of Manchester City’s shocking 2-1 loss at Wolves, Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League are greatly increased.

 

Havertz spent £65 million to transfer from Chelsea to Arsenal during the summer transfer window, but in his first eight games this year, he struggled to make an impression.

The German international, however, has now scored his first goal for his new team

 

The Gunners manager was pleased with his team’s “empathy” toward the struggling star after Arteta revealed that Havertz is going through a difficult time “externally.”.

Arteta told the BBC, “What they did today for Kai was a really moving moment.”.

“(He’s) someone who is going through a period externally — not internally, but externally — that he’s getting questioned in certain areas.

Today, that group of players won my heart because they stood up for him and demonstrated empathy and trust.

“.

Despite having a rocky start, Arsenal is thought to be among the favorites to win the Premier League this year.

Arteta’s team was held to 2-2 draws by Fulham and Tottenham despite having won five of their first seven league games.

 

If the Gunners want to defeat Pep Guardiola’s champions and win the title, they must have a nearly flawless season.

Last season, Arsenal was in a strong position to win the English championship, but they struggled in the final stages, allowing City to triumph.

 

When Arsenal played Bournemouth, Kai Havertz scored his first goal for the club.

 

Just one point separates Arsenal from league-leading City as of this writing.

Arteta expressed to the media his “very happiness” with his team’s performance.

He continued, “We knew the team was prepared to play based on how we approached the game yesterday.

“We faced a serious obstacle.

You don’t get much time from them (Bournemouth). We successfully read the game and earned the right to victory.

“.

Despite winning, Arsenal suffered injuries to Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Jesus.

Arteta responded, “I don’t know yet, when asked about Saka’s injury.

I’ve been unable to speak with him.

Following the game, Gabi was limping as well.

“.

 

If Liverpool defeats Tottenham on Saturday night, Arsenal will finish the day in third place.

However, given how well Ange Postecoglou’s team is performing, that will be a challenging task. Spurs have won four out of their first six games to start the league season unbeaten.
