Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has said that Wednesday’s top-of-the-table game against Manchester City will not decide the Premier League title, despite the fact that the Gunners are currently five points ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side. Arteta stated that the belief is still there within the team, and they will be looking to put in a perfect performance in order to get a result. He also acknowledged that City and Liverpool have been the teams to beat for the past six or seven years, and that Arsenal have been trying to close the gap. Regarding team news, Arteta said that midfielder Granit Xhaka is a doubt for the game due to illness, while centre-back William Saliba has shown no real improvement in his recovery from an injury sustained in March. Ultimately, Arteta concluded that even if Arsenal win the game, they will not have won the league, as there are still five tricky games left to play.
