'Bedlam - utter chaos!' - Inside Arsenal's greatest ever Emirates moment as Gunners complete UNBELIEVABLE Premier League comeback against Bournemouth
“I started to run, but I didn’t really know what I was running to.”
Those were the words of Mikel Arteta as he tried to describe his emotions following Reiss Nelson’s dramatic stoppage time winner for Arsenal against Bournemouth.
And every single Arsenal fan inside Emirates Stadium on Saturday will understand exactly what their manager was talking about.
Those 60 seconds after Nelson’s sweet half volley had found the far corner were as chaotic as they come.
It was pure bedlam. Utter chaos.
That surely has to be the greatest moment and the greatest celebration in the 17 years that Arsenal have called the Emirates Stadium their home.
The fact that as Arteta made his way back down the touchline towards his technical area he ran into a child, who must have been no older than five, summed it all up.
Where on earth had the boy come from? How had he got onto the pitch? Arteta had no idea.
“I suddenly saw this kid next to me that I had to give to security,” he laughed.
