For­mer Nige­ria coach, Sun­day Oliseh, has hailed Arse­nal man­ager Mikel Arteta af­ter guid­ing his team to a 2-0

vic­tory over Manch­ester United at the Emi­rates Sta­dium on New Year’s Day, de­scrib­ing the per­for­mance a mas­ter­class.

Arse­nal started the game brightly and were re­warded for their per­for­mance as Ni­co­las Pepe got the opener just af­ter eight min­utes into the game.

Sokratis got the sec­ond which proved to be the win­ner three min­utes be­fore half-time, leav­ing fans at the Emi­rates Sta­dium in ex­cite­ment.

Re­act­ing to the win, Oliseh wrote on his ver­i­fied Twit­ter han­dle that he was im­pressed with the tac­ti­cal ge­nius of Arteta.

“Im­pressed by the Tac­ti­cal, Tech­ni­cal and or­ga­nized man­ner Arse­nal went about their match against Manch­ester United.

“Vic­tory well de­served in my opin­ion and ku­dos to Coach Arteta! His sig­na­ture was all over his team. Es­pe­cially on Ni­co­las Pepe,” the for­mer Su­per Ea­gles coach wrote.

The win saw Arse­nal move up to 10th po­si­tion in the EPL with 27 points.
