Arsenal star: We should have beaten Swansea
12:54 07 January 2013
Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta felt his side were the better team in their 2-2 draw with Swansea.
The Gunners are hoping to end a seven-season trophy drought and the FA Cup resembles the north London club’s best chance for success.
“It’s a great chance to win a trophy,” he told Arsenal Player. “We don’t want to miss it.
“We improved a lot in the second half [against Swansea]. We had many chances to finish the game earlier, but then suddenly with one mistake they scored the first goal.
“We kept going and showed a lot of character to get back into the game, score and go ahead. But then we conceded a sloppy one again.
“I think we were the better team. We dominated possession better than them and created more chances. We deserved to win the game and that’s why we’re disappointed.
“We’re on a good run. We’re disappointed with the draws in the last two games as we could have won both of them but I thought in the second half we played very good football.”
