ARS 2-0 NEW: 2 Mistakes Arsenal's Manager Made In Today's Match, Despite Match Result (OPINION)

ARTICLE SOURCE: MY OPINION

Arsenal defeated Newcastle United in today's encounter, dominating play but failing to create those major scoring opportunities. Newcastle United failed to put any genuine pressure on Arsenal and instead sat back and let them dominate the game. After losing to Liverpool in their previous match at Anfield, Mikel Arteta's team got back on track.

Mikel Arteta made certain mistakes today that needed to be corrected. Arsenal was moving the ball around rather than creating chances; they had nearly all of the ball possessions but were unable to produce more significant scoring opportunities. Mikel Arteta should have employed more creative and dangerous players in front of goal. Regardless of the outcome of today's match, Mikel Arteta made two blunders.

Mikel Arteta needed to rest Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after starting in back-to-back games for Arsenal. Alexandre Lacazette could only stand on the sidelines and watch Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lose a golden opportunity to score. The Frenchman is one of Arsenal's most lethal finishers at the moment, and he deserves a chance in the first place. In today's encounter, Mikel Arteta should have started Lacazette ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; he would have been more effective.

Because Emile Smith-Rowe hasn't been as productive as he has been in recent games, Nicolas Pepe has been omitted from the starting lineup entirely. This season, the Ivorian has been denied more playing time, and he deserved to start ahead of Emile Smith-Rowe. With Bukayo Saka out, Nicolas Pepe may be called upon to start the team's next match against Manchester United. Mikel Arteta's side will be up against it, and he'll need all the aid he can get.
