Arsenal manager Arteta positive after Man Utd loss - 'We've come a long way since Anfield'
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was choosing to see the positives from Thursday's loss to Manchester United.
It was less than two weeks ago that Arsenal lost 4-0 to Liverpool at Anfield.
Coming up against another big rival away from home, Arteta was pleased with how his side had improved since losing to the Reds.
He said: "It is what it is. If you concede three goals at Old Trafford it is difficult to get a result. I was disappointed with the goals that we conceded.
"We've come a long way since the game at Anfield. We were able to maintain higher periods for longer. When we were in control we had a better structure and created chances. When it was 2-2 we needed to build momentum to get the win.
"There were a lot of things that I liked In the game. I liked the behaviour of individuals. When you score two goals at Old Trafford you expect to get something from the game and that is a regret, but that is our fault. When you see the game you would say we deserved more but that is what happens against this quality of opponent."
