Arsenal Were Fantastic At Crystal Palace — Arteta

Mikel Arteta has hailed his side for a hard-fought 1-0 win at Crystal Palace despite finishing the match with 10 men.

Martin Odegaard 54th minute penalty separated both sides before left-back Takehiro Tomiyasu was shown a red card for two bookings in the 67th minute.

The red card afforded Palace the opportunity to exert pressure on Arsenal, yet the Gunners held onto their slender lead to take three massive points on the road.

Manager Arteta said of his team's performance: "I loved it. I absolutely loved it. It's a really difficult place to come. 

"We played how we wanted to play 11 against 11, we dominated and created enough chances. 

"We had two huge chances and normally he [Eddie Nketiah] puts them away but we never gave up.

"We continued playing the way we wanted to and Eddie earned us the right to go ahead with his action. 

"Then we had to play the final half an hour with 10 men which is a context that we didn't prepare but we had to adapt and the players were fantastic as I don't think we gave anything away. I'm really happy."
