Arsenal continued their fine start to the new campaign with a 4-2 win over Leicester courtesy of two goals by Gabriel Jesus and second half strikes from Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Martinelli.

After the match, Mikel Arteta faced the Sky Sports cameras. Here’s what he had to say…

On back-to-back wins…

I’m really happy, a great game, I thought. Two very good teams, we had big moments, total control of the game and then we let it go a little bit and we had moments we suffered a little bit and then we got back on it. Overall, it was a big performance and a great win.

On Jesus’ performance…

It’s what he brings to the team, it’s that energy, that passion, that threat, you have the feeling that something is going to happen, it’s very intuitive and he’s very reliable every time you have to use him. I’m delighted to have him.

On expecting big things from Jesus…

I expect what I know of him and what we all expect from him is that he has the same level of work rate and enthusiasm that he brings to the team and then he’s going to put the ball in the net because it’s in his nature.

On twice scoring straight after Leicester and what it says…

The goal we conceded, obviously it was an own goal from Willy and a disappointing moment but I’ve never seen in football the response from our crowd, it was just incredible, I’m so proud to play in front of them. You don’t see that in football, you just don’t see it the way they supported him afterwards. They lifted the team and instead of a disappointing moment they created a very special moment in the stadium, so thank you so much for supporting our players like this.
