The Spanish military leader took less than a season to create an impressive milestone in the history of “Gunners”. According to Squawka, Mikel Arteta became the first person in Arsenal history to win the FA Cup, both as captain and coach.
According to Opta, the Spaniard was also the first Arsenal manager to win the title in his first season since George Graham in the 1986/87 season. Arteta won the FA Cup with Arsenal after defeating Hull City 3-2 in the final. It was also the title that ended the 10-year empty-handed series of the Emirates Stadium team.
On the morning of August 7, Arsenal and Arteta as head coach upstream beat Chelsea 2-1 to win the 14th FA Cup in history. The hero of “Gunners” is striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with double goals.
Spaniard Mikel Arteta led Arsenal mid-season after his predecessor Unai Emery was sacked for poor performance. After 28 games under Arteta, Arsenal won 16, drew 6 and lost 6 matches.
Arsenal won the right to go straight to the Europa League group stage 2020/21, directly saving the bad season in almost every arena. In the Premier League, Arsenal finished the season with 8th place.
In the Europa League, “Gunners” were eliminated by Olympiakos in the round of 16. At the Carabao Cup, Arsenal were eliminated by Liverpool in the fourth round.
According to Inews, attending the European Cup will help Arsenal a little bit attractive to the stars.
In addition, the possibility of still having to play on the field without an audience in the Premier League next season will cost Arsenal £ 96 million in tickets and sales activities. So the journey in the Europa League will partly help “Gunners” to bear the costs.
Chelsea actively engaged and only needed 5 minutes to score a goal. After Olivier Giroud’s heel pass, Christian Pulisic skillfully controlled and fired the shot at close range to hit Arsenal’s net.
Arteta’s army played awkwardly after conceding. Pulisic, Mason Mount constantly stirred the red defense. However, the shots of this duo were not enough to bring the second goal.
