“They packed the middle of the park and we found it harder than usual to squeeze them”, the makeshift left back stated.
Arbeloa was involved in the league win over Elche and gave his opinions about the game after the final whistle. “It was a very difficult match, they packed the middle of the park and we found it harder than usual to squeeze them. Although the result may make it seem like an easy win, it was a very hard-fought match. You have to learn how to suffer as well. They had a chance to make it 2-1, but with the next move we made it 3-0”.

On the topic of him starting the game at left back, he said: "Coentrão had a few minor problems and the coach didn't want to risk playing him. We have played a lot during the last 90 days and the most important thing is that we are all available to play”.
