Mikel Arteta reveals why Charlie Patino didn’t show up against Wimbledon

Mikel Arteta reveals why Charlie Patino didn't show up against Wimbledon

Arsenal advances

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal team achieved three victories at the top with a 3-0 win over League one team, AFC Wimbledon, in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Gunners took the lead on an Alexandre Lacazette penalty in the first ten minutes, but had to wait until well into the second half for the comfort of a second goal, with Emile Smith Rowe spinning from close behind. Moments later, Eddie Nketiah added sparkle to the result with a beautiful heel finish to give the marker a comfortable look.

As a reward for their performance, Arsenal have faced Premier League Leeds United in the fourth round of the competition, something both sides will take seriously as they seek to end the season with some sort of trophy.

Patino a notable absent

Many Arsenal fans were excited to see the kind of lineup the Gunners were going to play, with the youth team talking about the city having beaten Chelsea 6-1 at the weekend. Cheif among those fans wanted to see was 17-year-old Charlie Patino, but when the lineup was announced, it was a notable omission from the team.

Speaking after the game, Mikel Arteta described the reason why Patiño did not come tonight, saying:

“It was very close, but in the end we decided that some players needed a few minutes,” Arteta said after the game.

“It will happen in time.”

Charlie has been fine. He played a practice game at Colney and it was great.

“Again, give it time and we will prepare it.”

Could we see Patiño, at the tender age of just 17, make his Arsenal debut this season, or will 2021-22 come too soon for the young prospect?
