Arsenal assistant manager Albert Stuivenberg has revealed Mikel Arteta's feelings towards the Gunners' last-minute heartbreak.
Rodri was able to turn the ball past Aaron Ramsdale in the 93rd minute to extend Manchester City'sPremier League winning run to 11 games.
However, Arsenal felt aggrieved at a series of decisions from referee Stuart Attwell, especially a penalty call in the first half.
Attwell didn't consult the pitch-side monitor, but when City had a similar decision, the official took a second look at the monitor before awarding the spot-kick.
The decision left Arsenal fans fuming, and Stuivenberg has now revealed Arteta's stance on the performance.
"Mikel has the same feelings as me," Stuivenberg said after full time while questioning why Arsenal hadn't been awarded a penalty.
"He is frustrated after the performance and seeing the development of the team from the start of the season to now.
"Are we able to compete against one of the best teams in the world? And we were.
"We also showed guts and played the game we wanted in the first half. In the end it is frustrating to end with zero points."
