Sport: Mikel Arteta Arsenal Need To Be More Ruthless

Mikel Arteta says Arsenal should have taken more than a 1-1 draw from their Europa League clash against Benfica on Wednesday. 

Bukayo Saka equalised two minutes after the Portuguese side took the lead in the first leg of the last-32 tie to put the sides on level terms before the return fixture next week. SEE MORE SOCCER LIVE BETTING

Arsenal registered just two shots on target in the clash in Rome, while striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admitted on Twitter after the game that he should have found the net.

Arteta was happy with the way his side threatened Benfica and believes they should have won the game.

He told BT Sport:

“We were very dominant and created some big chances. We have to be more ruthless.

“It was disappointing the way we conceded the goal. We gave them the ball then it was 1-1 and all to play for.

“We conceded a corner then from the corner we did not react quick enough and conceded the penalty. Looking at it it’s difficult to judge. We had a great reaction and scored a great goal.

“We tried to maintain the level. Both teams dropped in the last 20 minutes. But overall we should leave the ground with more.”
