Arsenal have not won the league since the 2003-04 season

As he gets his team ready to take on a struggling Manchester United on Sunday, Mikel Arteta believes Arsenal must hold onto the hope that they can upset Manchester City and win the Premier League.

The Gunners lead second-place City by one point, but the reigning champions still have a match in their pocket and can clinch the title with three straight victories.

Arsenal’s home record at Old Trafford is awful—they have just won once in the league there since 2006—but they will be up against a United club that is struggling and has fallen on hard times under manager Erik ten Hag.

During his pre-game press conference on Friday, Arteta stated that although his players are not in charge of the title chase, they still need to remain focused.

“My brain is telling me we are lifting the Premier League!”

Although winning just two of their last ten league games, Arteta cautioned that United are still a formidable opponent.

What happened during the last Arsenal vs Manchester United encounter?

Alejandro Garnacho, a forward for United, believed he had won the rematch match at the Emirates Stadium in September, but his final strike was disallowed for offside, and Arsenal triumphed 3-1 with two more goals in the closing minutes.

The defending champions under Pep Guardiola visit Fulham on Saturday morning, travel to Tottenham, Arsenal’s opponents in North London, then host West Ham the following weekend.

Even if his squad are slightly underdogs right now, Arteta is happy with where his team is at. For the majority of the previous season, Arsenal were in the lead, but the City team caught and overtook them en route to capturing the treble.

Even though Erik ten Hag’s future as manager of the Red Devils is in doubt and the team is now ranked ninth in the league, Arteta nevertheless anticipates a difficult test on Sunday afternoon.
