Arsenal to win the Premier League


Mikel Arteta on Premier League title race

Manchester City can go three points clear of Arsenal in the table if they win both of their games in hand.

However, three points in February is really not a big gap, with the Liverpool win giving Arsenal a huge chance to win their first title in 20 years.

When asked if his side are back in the title race, Arteta said: “We are there, that’s for sure. We want to continue to be there. We’ve been really consistent all season, if not you aren’t where we are today. We take it game by game, the availability of the squad is going to be crucial. We have learned that from last season. Let’s try to make that happen.

“The schedule that we had prior to Christmas, the amount of players that played so many minutes and the injuries that we had, we needed to recharge.

“Now we’ve got some momentum back. Three really convincing wins in a row, the team playing really well and we have to go for it. The whole season is now ahead of us. We need players back because we have a few injuries.

“That’s the big concern I have. If we have everybody fit, training and available then we have a good chance.”
