Ahead of the showdown, it was put to Arteta that City rival Pep Guardiola often had his team play long balls in April’s defeat at the Etihad.
He responded: “They’ve done that against Brighton or against Liverpool.
“It’s adapting to the behaviour of the team. You know what you’re going to provoke. They have different qualities with Ederson and another goalkeeper.”

He also praised Gunners attacker Leandro Trossard saying: “Really important.
“I think Leo has been really good. He had a big impact. He was absent against Brentford when he could not compete but apart from that he’s been really good.”
Arteta was born 26 March 1982 in San Sebastin, in the Basque Country of Spain. He is multilingual, and is fluent in Spanish, Basque, Catalan and English. He also speaks French, Italian and Portuguese.
He is married to Argentine-Spanish actress, television host, model and former Miss Spain, Lorena Bernal. The couple have three children: Gabriel (born 2009), Daniel (born 2012) and Oliver (born 2015).
