Arsenal must believe in Premier League glory — Arteta

Mikel Arteta says Arsenal must cling to the belief they can lead Manchester City to the Premier League title as he prepares his men to thrash Manchester United on Sunday.

The Gunners are one point ahead of second-placed City, but the defending champions have a game in hand and will retain the title if they win their last three games.

Arsenal have a terrible record at Old Trafford – having won just once in the league there since 2006 – but face a struggling United side who have lost their way under beleaguered boss Erik ten Hag.

Arteta told Friday’s pre-match press conference that his players must stay focused even if they are not in control of the title race.

«We have to think that it will work, and what will work is that we will try to be better than our opponents and beat them and the end result, that will be something else,» said the Spaniard.

«It is not in our power at the moment. We know the difficulty of our history when you look at what we did there (at Old Trafford), so we will have to do our best to earn the right to win the game.»

Arteta warned United remain dangerous despite winning just two of their last 10 league games.

United striker Alejandro Garnacho thought he had won the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium in September but his late goal was ruled out for offside and Arsenal scored twice in the dying minutes to win 3-1.

«That tells you how difficult it is to face them, about their quality,» Arteta said.

Chasing an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title, City travel to Fulham on Saturday with the chance to leapfrog Arsenal before the Gunners kick off in Manchester the following day.

“They’ve been on an incredible journey over the last 10 or 15 years, but we want to change that. We are trying to do everything to improve and be better and better,» said Arteta, who previously served as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at City.

«You have to keep improving and trying to be better than them when you’re facing them and in a long, long, long season with a lot of demands in this league.»

«It’s been an incredible journey (for Arsenal) in every sense with a lot of changes. We’ve come a long way from where we were, that’s true, but there’s still a lot to come.»
