Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has emphasised the team’s growth and determination, asserting that they have learned from past setbacks and are primed to sustain their title challenge this season.

Reflecting on the disappointment of the previous campaign, where Arsenal squandered a significant lead, Arteta acknowledged the valuable lessons from their experiences. He highlighted the team’s resilience and adaptability, pointing out the improvements made since then.

“It is different to last season. The momentum is different. We had certain results and big injuries in that moment but those experiences are there to learn.”

Arteta stressed the importance of continuous learning and development, citing recent matches against Brentford and Porto as examples where the team identified areas for improvement. With Arsenal’s return to the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in over a decade, Arteta emphasised the psychological boost gained from notable victories over title contenders like City and Liverpool.

“We have learned from last season. And hopefully we are constantly learning. We learned something from the game we played against Brentford and Porto and that is going to help us for the next one against Bayern Munich and try to be better every game.”


Confidence within the squad is high, with Arteta expressing belief in the team’s ability to compete against any opponent at their best. Ahead of a crucial clash against Manchester City, Arteta underscored the significance of maintaining momentum and securing a positive result.

“Psychologically it is important and it gives you confidence and it sets a different kind of belief that you can play those games and you can actually beat them,” Arteta added. “When we are at our best we have the capacity to do that.

“They are in the best possible mindset and they are convinced and they have a feeling they can beat any opponent. I have full belief and trust in my players and what we’re trying to do. It’s something that we have to show on the pitch.”

Acknowledging the magnitude of the upcoming fixture, Arteta emphasised the long-term implications while remaining focused on the immediate challenge. 

“It’s a massive game for both teams. It will give us a huge boost again if we go there and win it. Still there is a long, long, long way after to make the ground to win it.”
