After Gabriel Magalhaes scored the winning goal for Arsenal against Fulham, emotions were running high in the Emirates Stadium, but manager Mikel Arteta was able to keep his cool.

After Gabriel Magalhaes scored the winning goal for Arsenal against Fulham, Mikel Arteta may have been the coolest person in the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners had to come from behind to keep their perfect start to the new Premier League season. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the first goal 11 minutes into the second half, but Martin Odegaard tied it up when his shot was deflected, setting up a thrilling finish.

Both teams had chances to take the lead, but in the end, Arsenal won this surprisingly tense London derby. Gabriel scored the winning goal when Bernd Leno, who was playing against his old team, dropped the ball from a corner. Gabriel poked the ball in from close range, and the crowd went crazy.

Arteta, on the other hand, was able to keep his feelings in check. Reddit noticed that after the ball went into the back of the net, the Gunners manager turned around to celebrate, but then quickly made a sign for a substitution. When the game started again, Takehiro Tomiyasu had replaced Gabriel Jesus.

When you look at the video clip more closely, you can see that Arteta talks to assistant coach Albert Stuivenberg before going over to Tomiyasu, who was cheering from the bench. It’s clear that the message was for the Japanese player to get ready because he would be needed to help the home team win.

During his press conference after the game, Arteta, who looked very happy, talked about how important it was to come back from behind. “We’ve grown up, we have more options, and I think we’ve also grown up,” he told reporters. “Playing in front of these fans helps because they push you, too. Then it’s all about believing.” A lot of that is about believing you can do it and having confidence in yourself, and now we have that.”

Also, the Spaniard gave Gabriel a lot of praise after the defender made a mistake that gave Fulham the lead but then scored the game-winning goal: “It’s just how everyone reacts. After the goal, everyone in the stadium did nothing but cheer for the player,” Arteta said.

“The player then has to be brave to keep playing. This is a normal part of football, and mistakes will continue to happen. How you react to that is what matters, and I’m really happy about that. It’s not a coincidence, because Gabby’s mind has changed, and he does things differently now than he did a year ago.

When asked to describe the Brazilian’s new approach and mindset, Arteta said, “How he takes care of himself every day, what is most important to him besides his daughter and family, how consistent he is every day in his habits, and how much he really wants to be one of the best.”
