Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is urging his team to carve out their own chapter in the club’s history, drawing inspiration from advice received from former manager Arsene Wenger on winning the title.

Twenty years after Wenger’s legendary Invincibles clinched Arsenal’s last Premier League crown at the old White Hart Lane, Arteta’s side faces a pivotal North London derby clash at the Tottenham Stadium on Sunday, aiming to sustain their momentum in the title race.

Having played under Wenger and lifted the FA Cup twice during his tenure from 2011 to 2016, Arteta revealed that he has sought advice from the Frenchman on navigating the challenges of winning the title. “I have spoken to him a few times,” Arteta disclosed. “He used to talk about how they won it and the later stages. It is always there in the hard drive.”


With Liverpool and Manchester City hot on their heels in the title race, Arteta emphasised the importance of maintaining focus and finding ways to secure victories, echoing Wenger’s emphasis on seizing opportunities in closely contested matches. “For this time of the season, at the end, it is about finding a way to win the game,” Arteta noted. “And that is it. You can do it in various ways when you look at how they won the titles.”

As the title race heats up, Arteta remains cautious about labelling it as a two-horse race. “This league is tremendously demanding and there can still be a lot of turns,” the Spaniard stated. “We know what we have to do to win this league.”
