PREMIER - Arsenal boss Arteta: "Our level dropped after the goal"

As a follow-up to latest Emirates Stadium 2-2 tie, accomplished against Crystal Palace, by a goal scored by Alexandre Lacazette right before the buzzer, Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, stated:

"We managed to score the goal, and we were in control. And then our level dropped. We had no composure on the ball, we started to give the ball away too easily, we didn't have any sequences in our passes, we wanted to attack in one or two passes and the distances were too big.

I think we put the handbrake on a little bit. We started to defend something. We were not moving fluently enough and taking the right decisions, playing forward more and being more ambitious to score the second goal in that moment. My boys, however, kept believing they could make it to a useful outcome. They always do, and they never gave up. We scored one and I think we should have scored one or two more".
