Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has heaped praise on Kai Havertz, revealing that the German midfielder played a pivotal role in their North London Derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur despite being unwell. Havertz’s dedication and resilience were evident as he delivered an outstanding performance despite not being at full fitness.

Speaking to Arsenal Media after the match, Arteta lauded Havertz’s contribution: “He was sensational in every department today. He wasn’t 100 percent today, he was ill before the match and was struggling a bit, but he still put in the performance that he put in. I thought he was unbelievable today.”

Arteta’s revelation highlights the unseen sacrifices and challenges that players often face. Havertz’s ability to overcome his physical discomfort and deliver a match-winning performance speaks volumes about his character and professionalism. His dedication serves as an inspiration to his teammates and a reminder of the collective spirit that drives Arsenal’s pursuit of success.
