"Mathematically Possible" – Arteta Speaks On Arsenal Winning Title After Brighton Loss
Mikel Arteta has said Arsenal can still mathematically win the Premier League despite their heavy defeat to Brighton yesterday
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has insisted that it is still “mathematically possible” to win the title ahead of Manchester City.
Arteta was speaking after their 3-0 loss to Brighton at the Emirates on Sunday, May 14, 2023.
The result means City are now four points ahead of the Gunners, with an outstanding game.
Pep Guardiola’s men could be confirmed champions for the third consecutive campaign if they beat Chelsea next Sunday at the Etihad.
But Arteta is refusing to give up.
Arteta stated: "I hate the feeling of letting people down when they’re really expecting something. That’s the biggest regret I have.
“Mathematically it is still possible and this is football, but it is impossible to be thinking about that today.
“We have to be thinking about the result and the performance we had in the second half and understand why and obviously have a different reaction in the next game."
