Mikel Arteta has praised Takehiro Tomiyasu’s last night’s performance against Liverpool.
Arsenal lost to Jurgen Klopp’s side in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final with a score of 2-0.
Although the right-back had one of his worst games for the Gunners, Arteta hailed the Japanese for playing after his calf injury recovery.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the boss has told.
“Well, he’s done incredibly. We didn’t want to play him, we had to push him because Cedric and Callum were out and we didn’t have any full backs.
“The moment that he knew that he knew that he said that he would play.
“He didn’t have any training sessions with us, and still was willing play and compete the way he has done today.
“So I am extremely proud and grateful for the players that we have.”
