Mikel Arteta in rapture after Arsenal win over Spurs

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been named Premier League manager of the month for September.

He emerges manager of the month after the Gunners had made their worst start to a season in 67 years after losing all three games they played in August and reversed their form in September.

The London club enjoyed back-to-back 1-0 wins over Norwich and Burnley to get their season going, before demolishing Tottenham in a one-sided derby to finish the month.

Upon receiving his manager of the month award, the Spaniard said “It’s a great feeling, it means we went on a good run and won matches.”

“But for me it’s much more than that. It’s about the people involved, the people who work with me and how grateful I am to have them.

“The level of trust, implication, and passion that they show working alongside me every day, that gives me the strength and then the belief in the players that they can do it, and that they are good enough to win matches and that we believe in them.”

“I said it after the [Spurs] game, it’s the best atmosphere I’ve seen at the Emirates. It was electric, it was real, it was honest and it was a real sense of chemistry between our supporters and the team.
