Talking on the Pitch to Post podcast for Sky Sports, Jamie spoke about what Arteta has done with the squad he inherited from Unai Emery. Arsenal were stuck in a rut under the former manager, and fans were not impressed with the style of play, nor were the Gunners getting results.
Mikel Arteta has beaten Chelsea to win the FA Cup final, and then beat Liverpool to win the Community Shield. Jamie Carragher claims that loss to Arsenal in the curtain raiser is something his former side will look to avenge. He said:
"There's no doubt Arsenal are on the way back under Mikel Arteta. I think he's been a brilliant signing. I'm so impressed with how he's managing that squad."
"But what he's done with the squad he's inherited is fantastic. To win the FA Cup, beat Liverpool a couple of times in the league and Community Shield, that's something Liverpool will want to put right."
