Arsenal were 3-0 victors over Everton in the WSL on Sunday night thanks to goals from Caitlin Foord, Beth Mead and Jordan Nobbs. Jonas Eidevall spoke to the press post-match, the first four questions are from Arseblog News.

On whether Everton lined up as he was expecting…
Yes, very much in line with how they played against Manchester City and many times teams line up similar against us to how they do against Manchester City so that’s usually the place to look!

On controlling the tempo and the emotion of the game…
A lot of the things we spoke about after the Chelsea game and the things we worked on in training were really showcased in the game today. We were so disappointed not to get sustained possession in Chelsea’s half last week and we were way too stressed with the ball. We need to understand the decision making when we go forwards, in a counter attack for example, then you need to really commit. But sometimes you really need to step on the ball, to organise the team and make more passes so we move them and then we find the moment to go through and we did that so much better here today. We had long spells where Everton had to work really hard off the ball and we were finding good moments to go through and even the times when we didn’t get through, we were so well together that we counterpressed and got the ball back and they couldn’t start any counter attacks.

On stretching the pitch by going wider in the second half…
We spoke about the decision making about when we should stay on one side and when we should go to central zones or the other side. That took a little too long in the first half so we were still very much in control but sometimes we kept the ball in spaces where we had even numbers. In the second half we were much better at moving the ball quicker and creating that extra player.

On Jordan Nobbs coming off the bench to score her 50th WSL goal…
Extremely pleased for her and extremely pleased with how she has trained this week. I spoke with her and I said unfortunately she wasn’t going to start but I thought she had trained excellently but I know she is so ready to come off the bench and she showed that. It is so important to us, you remember the minutes the players play and today she showed what a great player she is. I am really happy she got an end product from it because I know that is important to her so that was excellent to see.

On Beth Mead reaching 50 WSL goals and breaking the WSL assist record…
It shows how humble and grateful I should be to work with legendary players like that. But I also think that it is being part of being at this club to achieve things like that and not be satisfied with it. We are really happy and proud about it today but then we need to keep it going to strive for even more.

On playing after Chelsea earlier in the day…
Every time you manage Arsenal or play for Arsenal, the expectation is that you win. To be honest, Chelsea’s result doesn’t really matter to me because the pressure is on every game, I can’t feel more pressure. I support this club and I am so privileged to be here and I want nothing else other than to showcase this club so that pressure is on all the time.

On whether he will watch Chelsea v Spurs on Thursday night…
I don’t think so. Thursdays are our day off so I will spend it with my kids, I might catch the second half. I will rewatch the game because we play Tottenham but the game will not change if I see it!

On only being able to select 11 players…
It is part of the game and it is part of how we want to operate as a club to have really high competition for spots. I find it difficult to put good players on the bench because i know every player on our bench would start for many other WSL clubs. I want them to play because they work so hard and I want them to showcase their abilities to the world and their national team coaches, it is not easy but it’s part of the job and not everything is easy.
