PSV Eindhoven manager Ruud Van Nistelrooy has said that Arsenal lost the game in the second half. He said that the Gunners were dominating the first half.

However, he claims that his team vastly improved in the second half of the game. This helped them beat the Gunners by the score of 2-0.


PSV Eindhoven manager Rudd Van Nistelrooy has said that Arsenal dominated the first half of the game. However, he said that his players defended brilliantly to keep the game 0-0 at halftime. Although, he said that they were the better team in the second half. The display in the second half helped them beat the Premier League giants 2-0. This also means that they have the chance to fight with Arsenal for the top spot in their Europa League group.

Rudd Van Nistelrooy further said,

” I have seen the last games Arsenal have played and I thought the way they played in the first-half, they were tremendous. We couldn’t get them off the ball and we had a lot of problems stopping their possession and their rotations between the players. They just never seem to lose the ball. The second-half we changed it a bit and put them under a bit more pressure. It was the things we did well, we scored the goals at the right time as well.


Arsenal forward players will have to start scoring goals. They are creating chances at regular intervals in all the matches. However, they have failed to score many in the last two or three games. Hence, this will be a big test for Mikel Arteta. The star signing striker Gabriel Jesus is also six matches without a goal. Hence, this is a different problem in itself.

Mikel Arteta will hope that his attacking players get their scoring boots back against the newly-promoted Nottingham Forest. However, it will be a difficult task for the, This is because Nottingham Forest defeated Liverpool in their last match. Hence, it clearly shows that Forest have the capability to stop Arsenal from scoring against them.

Arsenal will hope to win the match. The potential winner will help them stay at the top of the Premier League table above Manchester City. They will also hope to win the game against FC Zurich in their last group game in the Europa League.
