Sunday Oliseh, a former Super Eagles coach, has praised Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta, after his side grabbed a hard-fought 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
The Gunners were reduced to 10 men in the 26th minute after David Luiz was sent off for fouling Tammy Abraham in the box.
Jorginho went on to score the resulting penalty before Gabriel Martinelli equalised for the Gunners in the 63rd minute. Cesar Azpilicueta then scored again for the Blues in 84th minute before captain Hector Bellerin slotted home three minutes later to ensure both teams settled for the spoils.
But Oliseh was more impressed with the man pulling the strings in the background, singling him out for praise after the match.
“Remarkable coaching work by Mikel Arteta tonight vs Chelsea, 2-2! With one man sent off, away from home, changes players’ animation, exit of Ozil at the right moment and keeping Martinelli on are some of the highlights of his coaching prowess, in my opinion! Very Entertaining,” the former Super Eagles midfielder tweeted.
The result left Arsenal rooted to the 10th spot with 30 points after 24 matches. Chelsea have 40 and are fourth on the log.
