Arteta's awkward interview live on TV leaves Arsenal fans in stitches as they say he's turning into Guardiola | The Sun

MIKEL ARTETA left fans in stitches with his response to Arsenal's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Monday.

The Spaniard was all smiles at the final whistle after his side claimed three points despite going down to 10 men.

And during a post-match interview, he made his feelings very clear.

When asked if it took a lot of grit and character to see out the game, the Arsenal manager simply responded: "Great win! I'm so happy!"

The reporter then asked Arteta what the most pleasing aspect of the performance was.

To which he responded: "That under any circumstances, you win."

Arsenal won the match 1-0 thanks to a penalty from Martin Odegaard.

But the Gunners almost suffered the consequences of a very controversial red card.

Takehiro Tomiyasu was sent off after receiving two yellow cards during the second half.

The full-back received a caution when both he and Kai Havertz wasted time at a throw-in at the hour mark.

He then picked up another booking just eight minutes later when he was adjudged to have pulled back Jordan Ayew.

But the second yellow card caused much debate among fans and pundits.
