What Arsene Wenger Told Mikel Arteta Ahead of Manchester City vs Arsenal Clash

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has backed current manager Mikel Arteta to win the Premier League and beat Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium when both sides meet next week.

Arsene Wenger led Arsenal to their last Premier League title in 2004 and many observers believe that the Gunners stand a good chance of ending their nearly 20 years wait to secure the win.

However, Arteta boys have failed to win all three points from winning positions in their last two games, a situation which has seen Manchester City close the gap on their title rivals this season.

Wenger however believes that the Gunners are only experiencing a blip and he is confident the team can win the title and even beat the reigning champions on their home ground.

”Arsenal and these players have not been in the position to win the league before.

”Hopefully, they win it this year and next year it will be easier. But now, when you have never won it, there will be a moment in the season when the tension comes in.

‘’When you start thinking more about the need to win than the process and how to play, it gets difficult. I felt that at Arsenal when I was there too,” Wenger said.

Wenger insists City are not the favourite to win the league, he said:

“No, no, no. I would say Arsenal still [will win the title].
‘What you want in this position is to have things in your hand. If Arsenal wins their games, they win the league so that’s an ideal position with a few games to go.

“Of course, Man City have an opportunity when they play Arsenal and that could be the decider in the championship.

“I still fancy Arsenal, I’m not completely objective here, but I do. We will also have to see how much the Champions League takes out of Man City.”
