Mikel Arteta praises Fabio Vieira after Bodo/Glimt win
Share this post:

Mikel Arteta praised Fabio Vieira after Arsenal’s routine Europa League win over Bodo/Glimt but insisted the summer signing ‘needs to do more’ defensively.

Vieira has impressed in his limited appearances following a £34m move from Porto, opening his account for Arsenal with a wondergoal in the 3-0 win over Brentford last month.

The Portuguese midfielder was on target again on Thursday night as Arsenal beat Bodo/Glimt by the same scoreline to take charge of their Europa League group.

Arteta said Vieira was a ‘real threat’ for the home side but urged his summer signing to ‘do more’ for the team from a defensive point of view.

Asked if Arsenal fans should be excited by Vieira, Arteta said: ‘Yes, you saw the quality. Every time he’s around the box he’s a real threat, really intelligent player and brave.

‘In defending he still needs to do more and understand it more because organisation is key when you play against good teams in ball possession.’

Eddie Nketiah and Rob Holding scored the other goals as Arsenal outclassed Bodo/Glimt and secured their ninth win in ten games in all competitions this season.

Asked what pleased him most about Nketiah’s performance, Arteta said: ‘When he puts the ball in the back of the net! For a manager, this is the best moment.

‘Obviously his work rate, his attitude, his application is just phenomenal. But he’s got this natural ability and he does it every time.’

On Nketiah’s role at Arsenal this season, with first-choice striker Gabriel Jesus enjoying a brilliant start to his Gunners career, Arteta added: ‘What I can say is that I’m really happy to have him in the team.

‘He has the qualities to play for this team, in any role – as a starter or a finisher, or however you want to call him. We all love his attitude and the qualities that he has, so we are really happy to have him.’

While Arsenal cruised to victory at the Emirates, Arteta was impressed by Bodo/Glimt. The Gunners will travel to Norway for the reverse fixture next week.

Arteta said: ‘It’s impressive how clear and brave they are in what they want to do. They came here and they tried to play exactly the same as they have played away or at home against any opponent.

‘That’s credit to the manager because they have put that belief in the team. So, they are a very, very good team.’

Premier League leaders Arsenal return to domestic action on Sunday against last season’s runners-up Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have endured an uncharacteristically poor start to the season, winning just two of their seven league fixtures to slip to ninth in the English top-flight.

[STORY] BEHIND THE FINE FACE (Episode 02)

Antony marked his Manchester United debut with a well-taken goal against Arsenal on Sunday, becoming the first Brazilian to score on his Premier League bow for the club. The winger, who arrived from Ajax in an £81.3million (€95m) deal, latched onto Marcus Rashford’s well-timed pass to slot home after 35 minutes, handing the Red Devils a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford. Antony became the ninth Brazilian player to appear for United in the Premier League. At the age of 22 years and 192 days, Antony’s goal made him the youngest Brazilian to score on his Premier League debut for any team. Casemiro became the eighth Brazilian to appear for United in the competition last month after joining from Real Madrid, but the midfielder is still awaiting his first start for the club. Antony was United’s most costly addition in a busy transfer window, having joined the likes of Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Martin Dubravka in making the switch to Old Trafford.
