Spanish midfielder discusses Arsenal manager’s reaction to Anfield debacle.
By all accounts, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was not a happy man at half-time during his side’s 5-1 defeat at Liverpool.

Indeed Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta believes he has never seen the Gunners manager as angry as he was during the break.
“We have had two big crises already,” Arsenal’s captain stated.
“I think the Manchester United defeat was a different game to this, but City and this one are really hard to take. We have to react because there is nothing we can do about this now. We know we need to improve and face those games in a different manner because after 19 minutes we were 4-0 down and it was like a car crash. The manager was really upset at half-time, that’s normal because it wasn’t good enough for this football club. It was the angriest I have seen him.”
Liverpool did of course race into a 4-0 lead after just 19 minutes and such a meltdown will have left any sane Arsenal supporter, of indeed employee, apoplectic with rage.
Luckily, to some extent, Arsenal did manage to prevent too much further anguish and the North London club are still very much in the Premier League title hunt as they entertain Man United tomorrow night.
