3 things we learned from Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Ostersunds


Take nothing for granted

There’s no doubt that Arsenal turned up to the Emirates Stadium yesterday expecting a comfortable victory, especially after leading 3-0 from the first-leg, and that complacency was capitalised on by Ostersunds- who played extremely well.

Arsenal struggled to get going throughout the match and it was an incredibly frustrating performance, which shows that the Gunners cannot take anything for granted and must enter each match with the desire to win by a large margin- especially in a knock-out game.

Against a better side, Arsenal could have easily thrown away their advantage and the match would have been entirely different if it wasn’t for a defensive mistake that allowed Sead Kolasinac to smash home after the break.
