Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta: “They are a really strong side. They’ve been unbeaten in the league. 

“You see how they have the ball. I think in the last few years, competing at the highest level, they’ve always been in the game and made it really difficult. 

“[They’re] really competitive, brave, very direct and incisive and a team that can cause you problems throughout the game.
