“You prepare a meeting and then you can throw all the preparation, all the videos in the bin and then you have to start new. That’s football and academy players are good players.”
Extra-time goals from Emile Smith Rowe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gives holders Arsenal victory against Newcastle.
Smith Rowe had earlier had red card decision rescinded before opening the scoring and Gunners boss Mikel Arteta was grateful VAR was in operation.
“I was going mad because when I saw the action on TV, I didn’t think that he could get sent off but thank God the regulators decided to have VAR and it worked the way it should work, so I am so happy to have that,” said Arteta.
