Arsenal to win the Premier League

Jorginho urges Arsenal to embrace underdogs mentality

Arsenal spent 248 days at the top of the Premier League last season before eventually losing out on the title to Manchester City.

This term, though, the Gunners have very much been playing catch-up with Liverpool and Manchester City, spending the majority of the campaign chasing top spot.

This has led to Arsenal being labelled the third horse in the 2023/24 title race, but Jorginho has told his Gunners teammates to embrace that tag:

“I like to be underdogs,” he said. “Let people speak, we need to stay humble, keep working hard and keep believing. Then we’ll see where we are going to get.”

Arsenal are next in action on March 4 vs Sheffield United and are clear favourites to pick up another three points, keeping the pressure on both Man City and Liverpool.
