Carabao Cup Arteta reacts as Brighton eliminate Arsenal in third round. Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, acknowledged that his team “came up short” against Brighton in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
After losing 3-1 at the Emirates, the Gunners were declared out of the competition.
Eddie Nketiah scored first, but Robert De Zerbi’s team rallied with goals from Kaoru Mitoma and Tariq Lamptey in the second half, as well as a penalty kick from Danny Welbeck to advance to the fourth round.
That is the roster we have, according to Arteta, who made 10 changes to the team that defeated Chelsea 1-0.
“We need to use it as effectively as we can. However, we failed today. To win the game, we didn’t fulfill our obligations in both boxes.
“We are aware of our situation, and our already small team has injuries. The best way feasible must be used to manage that.
