Arteta was clearly disappointed with how Arsenal collapsed against Man City.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says "everything went wrong from the first minute" as they were beaten 3-0 on Wednesday night.
Manchester City ran riot over the Gunners as goals from Raheem Sterling, Kevin de Bruyne, and Phill Foden handed the homeside three points.
David Luiz's mistakes also played a part in their defeat but all in all, they were below par especially in the second half at the Etihad.
After the loss, manager Arteta told Sky Sports: "Everything went wrong from the first minute. Every possible accident that could have happened hopefully happened today."
When asked if the lengthy lay-off was a reason behind the injuries, he said: "If they were muscular injuries, maybe yes. But these ones I don't think so."
On David Luiz's clumsy performance, the Spaniard replied: "He is someone that is very honest and straight forward. My opinion on David Luiz hasn't changed. It won't change because he had a difficult performance tonight."
On leaving Mesut Ozil out of the squad, he said "It was a tactical reason."
Regarding the 'Black Lives Matter' support, the 38-year-old said: "I think it is bringing everyone back together again in a very strong message."
Arsenal are winless in their last 26 Premier League away games against fellow ‘big six’ opposition (D10 L16).
