Arteta hailed his young Gunners after they sealed a spot in the FA Cup fifth-round with a win over Bournemouth.
Mikel Arteta heaped praise on his Arsenal side after they secured a 2-1 win over Bournemouth in the FA Cup.
The Gunners started the game at the Vitality Stadium in flying colours as Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah both found the net within 26 minutes. The Cherries later responded through Sam Surridge in the dying minute but it was too late to seal a comeback - in a match that was dominated by the awayside.
"I'm very pleased. It's always tough to come here and win, we've done it with a young team as well," the Gunners boss told BBC Sport.
"I have a lot of faith in them. I think they are developing really well. They are willing and hungry and will only get better.
"We analyse opponents and try to generate situations that are favourable for our players.
"I was worried with their history in the last few weeks we would concede in the last few minutes.
"Our history with this cup is massive for the club. We need to take it step by step."
