arp poisoning

I understand that arp spoof/poisoning involves an attacker intercepting a computers request for a mac address say for example from a router and responding with their mac address and believe their ip address. Thus the attacker fools the legitimate machine into thinking it is the router.

Whats baffling to me is why would the machine report to the attackers machine rather then the routers machine ?
