PSV head coach Peter Bosz has hailed Arsenal as one of the best teams in the world after his side’s 4-0 defeat in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
Mikel Arteta’s men delivered an impressive performance in their first game back in the Champions League as goals from Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard sealed a deserved win at the Emirates Stadium.
‘The difference in quality was just too big tonight,’ Bosz said after PSV’s defeat.
‘If we were to lie in front of the box we would have conceded to them too. We did not defend well in our own box, we were not short. But that also has to do with their quality.
‘Arsenal are one of the best teams in the world, we are not. I don’t blame the boys.’
The result puts Arsenal top of Group B, while Sevilla and Lens have a point each after their 1-1 draw in Spain.
Speaking after his team’s defeat at the Emirates Stadium, PSV captain Luuk de Jong already believes Arsenal will finish in top spot following their dominant performance.
‘Arsenal are simply a very good team,’ De Jong said.
‘We tried to put pressure on them, but we quickly conceded two goals.
‘They know exactly where to move when we put pressure on them and they always knew where to find a free man.
‘They have a lot of calmness with the ball, their level is so high. It was difficult for us today.
‘Still, our team deserves compliments because we fought. Arsenal were just a size too big. We will have to compete with the other teams for second place.’
