Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, praised his team’s tenacity in defeating Bodo/Glimt on Thursday night in the Europa League.
Arsenal kept their perfect record in the Europa League group stage alive with a spirited 1-0 away victory over Bodo/Glimt in Norway.
Even though they weren’t at their brilliant best, the Gunners persevered to win their third game in a row on the continent.
Bukayo Saka attempted to lob the ball over the carelessly charging goalkeeper Nikita Haikin in the second minute, but the ball was cleared off the line and Eddie Nketiah was called for a foul.
The first-half goal from Bukayo Saka was sufficient for the Gunners to win all three points in Norway.
“Really happy with the win against a team that has won 14 games consecutively here.
“It’s not a coincidence and we knew we were expecting a really tough night here.
“We made a lot of changes again but I’m delighted to find a way to win football matches every three days, under any circumstances it’s a positive sign for the team,” Arteta said.
Arsenal are now top of Group A with nine points, two more than PSV Eindhoven.
