Bernd Leno has revealed Mikel Arteta told his Arsenal squad they should be ‘upset’ after losing to Manchester City as they had chances to secure at least a point at the Etihad.

Raheem Sterling’s first-half goal was enough to secure victory for Pep Guardiola on Saturday against his former Man City assist Arteta.

Arsenal had chances to equalise but City goalkeeper Ederson made a number of superb saves, as the Gunners’ miserable record against ‘top six’ clubs continued.

The north Londoners have now failed to beat a fellow ‘top six’ team in their last 29 meetings and Arteta told his squad they had a chance to erase that record against Manchester City.

Speaking after the defeat, Arsenal goalkeeper Leno told Sky Sports: ‘It’s very hard. The manager said we have to be upset because [getting a result] was possible.

‘But on the other side there were a lot of positives.

‘It’s disappointing that we lost. But we compete today and had chances to get a point. Unfortunately we didn’t take the chances.

‘We controlled the game but the big chances we missed. We tried everything but we couldn’t score.

‘The game was very close and Man City could feel that. They didn’t have too many chances.’

Arteta, meanwhile, insisted he was ‘proud’ of Arsenal after their narrow defeat to 2019-20 runners-up Manchester City.

‘I felt we kept growing and growing, having more belief that we could get something,’ he said.

‘I’m proud of the way we played individually and collectively. It’s not easy to produce a performance here.

‘We need everything to go our way to get a win here. The three or four chances we had, you need to put them away.’
