Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has shrugged off predictions from a Premier League supercomputer regarding the league title, as his focus remains fixed on the upcoming North London Derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

Currently leading the league table with a slender one-point advantage, Arsenal face mounting pressure from second-placed Manchester City, who have a game in hand. Should City triumph, they would leapfrog Arsenal into the top spot, intensifying the Gunners’ need to avoid any further slip-ups.

With four games left in the season, every point is crucial for Arsenal’s title aspirations. However, the odds seem stacked against them, with the supercomputer favouring City’s chances of clinching the title with a 72% likelihood, compared to Arsenal’s 27%.

Arteta, though, remains undeterred, expressing a touch of humour as he contemplated tweaking the supercomputer’s predictions. “Hopefully we can tweak that computer and make it a bit higher. Maybe they need to upload the software, maybe we need to help them and give them more tools – hopefully, we can change that,” Arteta quipped during a pre-match press conference, hinting at Arsenal’s determination to defy the odds.

As Arsenal prepares for the crucial derby clash against Tottenham, Arteta emphasised the heightened motivation surrounding the fixture, particularly for him as a manager. Reflecting on past victories against Spurs, Arteta highlighted the opportunity to bring joy to Arsenal supporters by securing a vital win.

“You know what you can give to people, which is a lot of joy and happiness if we manage to win the game,” Arteta explained. “When you have the chance to do that and it’s in your hands, you really want to make the most of it to try and make it happen.”

In this fixture last season at the Tottenham Stadium, Arsenal emerged victorious with a 2-0 win and Arteta will be hoping for a similar outcome to keep their title hopes alive.
