Leicester vs Arsenal: What has been said?

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta: “We have to travel back on a four-hour flight but we won’t use that as an excuse,” he said. “We have to deal with that, we know that when you play in European competition you have to be able to perform every three days and we will prepare to play Leicester with the same intensity like we always do.

“They’ve been really consistent in the league. I think they’ve done a lot of good things, there’s not any luck or anything like that in how they’ve developed as a team.

“Obviously they have a really good manager, a great coaching staff and they have made a lot of good decisions in the last few seasons.

“They have built a way of playing which is completely suited to their recruitment policy, and with a bit of time the quality that they had already in the team – plus some young talents that they have recruited and experienced players they already have – they have a really good mixture. I think they totally deserve the position they are in at the moment.”
