Arteta hails ‘very positive’ group campaign

Boss Mikel Arteta believes his side can feel well pleased with their Champions League showing so far.

The Gunners, already through to the knockout phase, ended the group stage with a 1-1 draw away to PSV Eindhoven.

“Overall, I think, very positive,” Arteta said.

“Having not been in the competition for six or seven years and having a team that hasn’t got that much experience, I think we’ve competed really well.

“Overall, finishing first with a game to play we have to be really happy. Now we have to close that chapter until February and make sure when that chapter opens up again we’re in the best place to compete against another top side.”
