Arteta also spoke for the first time since being cleared of misconduct by an independent committee regarding comments on refereeing standards in Arsenal’s defeat to Newcastle United. He expressed satisfaction with the process, emphasizing the need to draw a line and focus on constructive learning from the experience.

Regarding the upcoming match against Brighton, Arteta acknowledged the challenge posed by Roberto De Zerbi, who guided Brighton to the Europa League knockout stages. De Zerbi, known for his outspoken views on English referees, recently led Brighton to a 1-0 victory over Marseille. Arteta emphasized the importance of moving forward and learning from such experiences in the highly competitive managerial landscape.
