Arsenal news: Mikel Arteta is clear on who is to blame for Aymeric Laporte’s taunting of the Gunners.

Arsenal are thinking that Manchester City are now just one win away from another league title after being beaten 3-0 by Brighton.

Arsenal v Brighton: Pictures

After a valiant effort throughout the season, Arsenal’s unlikely title charge was all but over following a disastrous 3-0 defeat to Brighton at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta’s men only knew victory as Manchester City beat Everton by the same scoreline later that afternoon. And yet, they were outplayed by Brighton from the first whistle, with Roberto de Gerby’s men producing a remarkable performance to resign their hosts to their second defeat of the entire campaign.

As a result, the Gunners are certain to finish second in the Premier League this term, something they surely should have taken before a ball was kicked back in August last year, but they are feeling let down at the front. At the top.

With that in mind, Mirror Football has identified three key headlines coming out of the Emirates on Monday 15 May.

Arteta shoulders the blame

After Brighton’s defeat, the Arsenal boss admitted he felt he had let people down after gifting City a fifth league title in six seasons.

He told Sky Sports: „I hate to let people down when they’re really expecting something. That’s the biggest regret I have today.”

Arteta continued. Adding: „A week ago, I was proud to stand here and today we have to apologize for the way we played in the second half. It was not accepted.

„Mathematically, it’s still possible, but we can’t think about it today. We have to digest the result and the performance in the second half, understand why and have a different reaction.”
