In the wake of Arsenal’s resounding 5-0 victory over Chelsea, midfielder Thomas Partey has set a decisive tone, asserting that the Gunners must secure victories in their remaining four Premier League fixtures, commencing with a pivotal clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Partey’s declaration comes in the aftermath of Arsenal’s commanding performance against Chelsea, where they surged to a three-point lead at the summit of the Premier League table. With Manchester City closely trailing by four points and possessing two games in hand, the destiny of the title remains within their grasp, with a crucial fixture against Brighton on Thursday.

Mikel Arteta’s side has thrust pressure upon their title rivals with their recent form, as they strive to reach the formidable 90-point mark—a benchmark set by Arteta last month as necessary for clinching Arsenal’s first league title in two decades.

Partey emphasised the importance of Arsenal’s self-reliance, stating, “Everything depends on us. We have to continue winning our games, we have a few more games left and we have to win them all.” The midfielder anticipates a challenging encounter against Tottenham, acknowledging the significance of the fixture in the title race.


Partey’s physical presence proved instrumental in Arsenal’s victory over Chelsea, as he marshalled the midfield alongside Declan Rice and Martin Odegaard, contributing defensively while allowing Rice to surge forward and initiate attacking opportunities.

Reflecting on Arsenal’s recent resurgence following setbacks against Aston Villa and Bayern Munich, Arteta highlighted the team’s perseverance and unity, emphasising the belief and consistency required to sustain their title challenge.

Meanwhile, Chelsea endured a dismal evening, compounded by a brace from Kai Havertz, whose stellar performance drew praise from Arsenal’s Ben White. The defeat further underscored Chelsea’s struggles, prompting reflection on their recent form and aspirations for the remainder of the season.
