“We don’t have any other solution” – Arteta speaks on 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa derailing title chances

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, has encouraged his players not to let one result ruin their season.

This came after their 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal suffered their first Premier League defeat since New Year’s Eve, thanks to goals from Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins.

It also means Manchester City will win the Premier League title for the fifth time in six seasons if they win their last six games.

Arsenal now face a pivotal week, traveling to Bayern Munich on Wednesday with their Champions League quarter-final tie tied at 2-2 before a challenging trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who defeated both City and Tottenham Hotspur at home earlier this season.

Asked if there was a danger their season could quickly fizzle out, Arteta replied: “If one result is going to do that then we are not strong enough. That’s very simple. We had one of the best performances we’ve had all season in the first half against a really good team.

“It should have been three or four or more. It didn’t happen. In the second half the momentum shifted. We could not control and generate what we did in the first half. We conceded two very poor goals and we lost the game.

“Congratulate the opponent and stand up. Now the moment is to stand up and be counted. When you win and win and win for four months it’s very simple to do it. The moment to do it is now.

“We don’t have any other solution. If you want to win championships, if you want to be there in the Champions League, when you have these moments, you have to stand up. If not that means that you don’t have a very necessary quality.

“Now it’s a big test for us.”
