NEWS UPDATE: EPL: What Gerrard said about Arteta ahead of Aston Villa vs Arsenal

Aston Villa manager, Steven Gerrard, has hailed Mikel Arteta for the “fantastic job” he has done at Arsenal.

Gerrard also hailed the Gunners’ board for backing the Spaniard through the rough spell.

There was pressure on Arteta at the beginning of the season after they lost all three of their opening Premier League matches.

But Arsenal have turned things around, and now find themselves in a battle to finish in the top four places.

Ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Aston Villa on Saturday, Gerrard said: “He’s come through a couple of periods where the pressure was certainly on him and his team,’ Gerrard said.

“You’ve got to give people at Arsenal credit for supporting him, backing him and giving him the time to stamp his identity and philosophy on how he wants the team to play.

“With that time and with that support, they’ve grown, improved and got better. Now, they’re showing everyone what a consistent and strong team they can be.

“They’ve got some real top talents within the team. Defensively, they’ve improved. Set-piece wise, they’ve improved. Credit to the coach and his coaching staff.

“Arsenal are in great form since September and I think Mikel Arteta’s done a fantastic job.”
