EPL: Arteta reacts as Arsenal players give Havertz penalty against Bournemouth

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has spoken of his pride after his players gave Havertz the second penalty in their 4-0 win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Gunners had already taken a two-goal lead in the first half, thanks to Bukayo Saka’s header and Martin Odegaard’s penalty.

Eddie Nketiah had won the first penalty, but Saka handed the ball over to Odegaard.

However, when Odegaard was clipped inside the box in the second half, Havertz was given the ball and he made it 3-0, his first goal since he arrived from Chelsea.

“I’m really happy for the win, but I’m even happier to be part of a team that shows the human qualities that they do today.

“To show that empathy to a player that has some question marks they warmed me even more today,” Arteta told reporters after the game.
