Arsenal FC Manager, Mikel Arteta insists the Gunner’s trip to face Manchester City on Wednesday is not a Premier League title decider but concedes his team now have to be perfect in order to stay top of the table.
City and Arsenal will go into their potential Premier League title decider with both on long unbeaten runs but with momentum maybe swinging towards City.
Arteta’s side are on a run of three dramatic draws in succession, and with questions being asked over their nerves in the run-in.
Arsenal drew against Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton with them coming from behind to draw at home to the Saints.
Arteta said: “If we win tomorrow night, we haven’t won the league, that’s for sure. It will shift the percentages a little bit, but with five games left after this, it will still be very tricky.”
City are unbeaten in 16 games in all competitions since losing to Tottenham in early February, with 13 wins and three draws in that run.
