Arsenal fans were lauding Mikel Arteta after the Spaniard commented on what starting XI he will choose for the club’s clash with Olympiacos this evening.
In his pre-match press conference yesterday, the former Manchester City coach claimed that he will choose the team that he feels ‘is the best to play’ (via Arsenal). The comments come amid some interesting team news ahead of the fixture against the Greek giants. While Pablo Mari and Matteo Guendouzi could feature, Lucas Torreira could miss out because of illness and Mesut Ozil has been left at home with his wife due to give birth.
The Gunners will be hoping for a better start to the Europa League knockout round having lost 1-0 to Belarus outfit BATE Borisov at the same stage last season. Fans were loving the comments made by the head coach as they took to Twitter to react. Let’s take a look at some of the replies:
