Arsenal signs Mat Ryan ahead of FA Cup clash with Southampton

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has wished Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, the best over the Blues’ current struggles.

Arteta insisted that he is taking no enjoyment from Lampard’s current struggles at Chelsea as speculation continues to ramp up over his future at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard said this ahead of Arsenal’s FA Cup tie with Southampton on Saturday.

Lampard’s men were top of the Premier League table a few weeks ago, but their form has declined and Arsenal, who were closer to the relegation zone before Christmas are now just two points behind Chelsea.

Arteta was facing scrutiny over his position at Emirates during Arsenal’s nine-game winless run, but now it’s Lampard who is under the microscope after Chelsea lost five of their last eight Premier League fixtures.

Speaking on the development, Arteta said as quoted by Metro UK: “No. When any of my colleagues are in difficulties, I don’t smile.

“If anything, I would like to support them. I had a lot of support from a lot of managers in the league when we were going through rough times, even some advice as well and that’s how it should be.
