EPL: 'We Can Still Be Champions' - Arteta Speaks On Arsenal Winning Title
Arteta has refused to give up on Arsenal clinching the trophy for the first time in almost 20 years
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has insisted they can still be champions this season.
The Gunners go into this weekend’s clash against Nottingham Forest four points behind Manchester City and two games left this season.
However, no matter the result at the Forest Ground, City can be confirmed champions if they defeat Chelsea at the Etihad on Sunday.
But Arteta has refused to give up on Arsenal clinching the trophy for the first time in almost 20 years.
“We can still be champions against probably the best team in the history of the Premier League.
“We are still there. We are not going to bottle that. What happens next season? It depends on what we do and how we evolve,” Arteta told reporters on Friday, May 19, 2023.
Arsenal will be relying on a miracle if they still harbour ambitions of winning the Premier League this season.
They will need to hope City do not win any of their three remaining league games – against Chelsea, Brighton and Brentford.
The Gunners will also need to win both of their final matches against Nottingham Forest and Wolves.
But, as they sit 20 goals behind on goal difference, even a draw would likely be enough for City to reclaim their crown – while Pep Guardiola’s men could be crowned champions without even playing if Arsenal lose against Forest on Saturday evening.
