Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has expressed confidence in Fulham’s unconventional training methods ahead of their clash against Manchester City on Saturday, as the Gunners hope for a favour from their London neighbours to shake up the Premier League title race.

With Manchester City set to face Fulham in the early kick-off, Arsenal fans are banking on a rare slip from Pep Guardiola’s side to bolster their own title aspirations ahead of a crucial showdown against Manchester United. 

The Gunners’ hopes were stirred earlier this week when footage emerged of Fulham’s Motspur Park training ground, revealing Brazilian players engaged in kite flying activities.

Arteta, known for his own innovative coaching techniques, welcomed Fulham’s team bonding exercise, emphasising its potential for positive outcomes. 


“It’s the power of team bonding nobody knows what is it, but sometimes you get amazing result,” Arteta remarked. “I’ve been in teams that have been struggling, go out for a dinner, and then start an unbelievable run. I’m really positive that’s going to happen to Fulham.”

Former Arsenal star Willian, who participated in the kite flying session, echoed Arteta’s sentiments but stressed the seriousness of facing Manchester City. “It’s always good to play against the big teams, especially City who are – for me – the best team in the world,” said Willian. “To beat them, you need to be perfect. In every moment of the game, in every aspect of the game.”

Despite acknowledging the challenge posed by Manchester City, Willian remains focused on delivering a strong performance for Fulham. “We respect them a lot, as I said they’re the best team in the world, but we cannot be afraid to play against them,” he affirmed. “We need to go there Saturday and try our best to win the game.”
