Mikel Arteta harassed by Arsenal fans outside stadium after Chelsea defeat
In their first half of the game at the Emirates, Arsenal fans made a move to voice their disappointments as they booed the players at half time just as at the full-time whistle.
What’s more, a few fans vented their outrage straightforwardly at Arteta as he advanced home on Sunday evening.
As Arteta’s vehicle was immovable, a few fans mobbed the driver’s window and started encouraging the Spaniard manager to help himself out by leaving the club.
One supporter could be listened to inquiring: ‘Arteta, was that good enough? Please leave the club.’
Another man added: ‘Arteta, do yourself a favour. Mikel, do yourself a favour, please leave.’
‘It’s another defeat, the second one of the season which is really tough to take,’ said Arteta.
‘Chelsea deserved to win, I think they were the better side overall. We had moments at the start of the first half and at the beginning of the second half.
‘After conceding the goal they started to manage the game exactly how they wanted. When we had them in good areas and without the ball with our press they still managed to come out with the incredible quality that they have. They showed in moments why they are the champions of the Champions League.

‘What I liked about the team is that at 2-0 they never gave up, they tried right up to 90 minutes.
‘With our limitations, because at the moment we are missing eight or nine players.
‘I’m sad, sad for the fans because we really wanted to give them something special today. Even though we know the circumstances we have with the team at the moment, and not being able to do that and enjoy this moment with them is sad.’
