Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has insisted he will always stick up for his players after his touchline spat with Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp.

Asked if it was good for the players to see his passion, Arteta said: “I don’t know.

If I feel like this, I will react and if I feel I have to defend my players, I will do it.

However, what he saw in the dressing room in the immediate aftermath pleased Arteta.

I will always defend my club, my team and the players on the pitch.” The defeat at Liverpool ended the Gunners’ 10-match unbeaten run in comprehensive fashion and served as something of a reality check.

“You can see the last game that they played as well, you see some different things, new manager, new coaching staff, so let’s be prepared.” Meanwhile, Arteta has reminded his soon-to-be out of contract players, among them striker Alexandre Lacazette, what he expects from them after insisting talks over new deals will not take place until the end of the season.

The two men clashed during the Gunners’ 4-0 Premier League defeat at Anfield last Saturday, with the Spaniard furious over Sadio Mane’s challenge on Takehiro Tomiyasu and the German unhappy with his reaction to it.
