Mikel Arteta’s team put on an incredible display to defeat Liverpool 3-1 over the weekend, but it was also surely helped by the enthusiastic supporters who were there to applaud every foul call and every well-executed play.
Attendees at Emirates Stadium made sure to create as much noise as they could for the full 90 minutes, knowing that this was Arsenal’s huge chance to maintain their lead at the top of the table.
After Gabriel Jesus’ injury, Kai Havertz was forced to start at centre forward for the game. Following the game, he talked about the effect of the fans.
Havertz remarked, “The little things made a big difference today.”
“Undoubtedly, our way of thinking and the evident assistance from our fans. They exhibited great faith and forced us to flee today when we needed them. We are quite pleased with the three points.
“With two elite teams competing, there’s no secret to the victory. The little things count a lot. We managed to score two excellent goals; granted, their goal was also somewhat fortunate. We are overjoyed.
“We had a great night, and the supporters were outstanding.” We sincerely appreciate them.
Before the season ends, Arsenal still has a few important games at the Emirates Stadium, most notably in the Champions League.
The Gunners meet Chelsea at the same location later that week on March 16 after taking on FC Porto on March 12 in their second leg matchup for the round of 16. More is in store if Arsenal can advance farther in the Champions League.
This month’s next home game is particularly important since Arteta’s team is trying to exact revenge on Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United.
Just as they did against Liverpool, the supporters must support the team in certain games because it is obvious that it affects the players.
