After losing 0-1 to Manchester City, Arsenal coach Arteta talked about the situation of new aid Thomas and Holding's injury. He said that Thomas had to adapt to a completely different game mode, and that Holding's injury was unclear.
"We will see how long it takes him to adapt, and we must respect this process because he only trained with us for one day."
"There are so many new things here. He has to understand a completely different game pattern from the past. We have to respect this. He looks good when he is on the court."
Ghana international Thomas joined Arsenal before the deadline for the transfer window, and then he went to the national team to report for the game on October 12th and delivered two assists. In this game, he played 10 minutes off the bench to complete his debut in the Gunners.
"We don't know. The decision to remove him temporarily was very bad. But David was very focused. He played and I think he played very well."
