Arsenal boss Arteta delighted with victory over Rapid Vienna

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was delighted with their 2-1 Europa League win at Rapid Vienna.

David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck the goals for Arsenal.

Arteta later said, "We knew it would be a difficult match and we made it a little bit harder with a few of the decisions we made and the goal we conceded, which if anything is my fault because I demand those things.

"But I really liked the reaction, in the second half we understood much better the spaces that we have to attack, we played with more purpose and we generated much more, even though we conceded a late chance with another misunderstanding at the back. But in general I think e scored two good goals, the second one was fantastic and I am delighted to start with a victory."
