Mix’s emotions so extreme again
Mikel Arteta went wild on the touchline again against Oxford – despite watching his Arsenal side cruise to victory.
After an awkward first-half, a brace from Eddie Nketiah and a bullet header from Mohamed Elneny took the game away from the League 1 hosts.
An impressive first-half showing from Karl Robinson’s side saw Arsenal have to fight to avoid an upset.
And even though he watched the Gunners take a commanding 3-0 lead, boss Arteta grew increasingly animated and even caught the attention of co-commentator Lee Dixon.
With the game winding to an end and Arteta frantically gesturing in front of the cameras, Dixon said: “[Arteta is] waving his arms about like he normally is.”
The pundit then added cheekily: “At least he has stayed in his technical area tonight.”
The Arsenal boss had triggered a mixed reaction after putting on a show against Newcastle last week – and almost coming to blows with Eddie Howe.
Arteta cut a frustrated and energetic figure as he watched Arsenal drop points in the league for the first time since October.
Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness claimed the 40-year-old would have felt “embarrassed” watching back his antics the next day.
