“I said arguably that they are [with] where they are competing in their competition and what they’ve done in the Champions League semi-final. But as well it shows the level of this league – that team has the capacity to get 105 or 110 points. They haven’t done it this season because of the level of the league. We have been there with them, toe to toe, for 10 months,” said Mikel Arteta in the pre-match conference as quoted by

“Today? At the level that we want, no. We didn’t have the capacity to do that with the Europa League. It’s part of that evolution. We have made a lot of good steps, strong steps in that journey. We have to continue. That never ends. We have to be better. The rest will be better. The demands will be higher. We have to start and live with those standards, improve and be smarter. That doesn’t just mean signing players. It’s to improve our players.” (ANI)
