Asked for his thoughts on Raul Jimenez, Arteta said: “Yeah, all the front players to be fair. They have goals from midfield, they have some dangerous attacking set pieces as well. They’re a team that is really dangerous in transition moments.
“I think they are one of the most consistent teams in the league for the way they play. It’s true on Monday that they had to play a different formation, but it’s a team that has been having really good results in recent years, a manager that has been working with them for a long time that has recruited in a really intelligent way for the way they play.
“A really solid team, really hard to break and some talent as well. So we know that it’s a team that is really hard to beat always.”
Arsenal are set to be without Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny, while they will make a las-minute decision on Bukayo Saka.
