Arsenal are in contention for two titles this season. As Mikel Arteta’s side take on against Aston Villa on Sunday, one rival boss has special plans for the game in preparation for upcoming engagements.

With the opportunity to seal a monumental victory in the Bundesliga, all eyes are on Leverkusen as they take on Werder Bremen in a match that could mark the end of Bayern’s remarkable streak of 11 consecutive league titles.

Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel revealed his weekend plans during the pre-match press conference ahead of their Bundesliga clash with FC Koln.

When asked if he would be watching Leverkusen’s potentially title-clinching game, Tuchel candidly responded, “No. I’m going to watch Arsenal,” emphasising his full focus on the upcoming Champions League clash with the English side.

Tuchel’s comments shed light on Bayern’s shifting priorities, with the club channeling their energy towards success in the Champions League.


It is apparent that Tuchel and his squad are determined to overcome Arsenal in the European competition, conceding the Bundesliga title to Leverkusen, led by Xabi Alonso and featuring former Arsenal star Granit Xhaka.

Following Bayern’s recent encounter with Arsenal, where they displayed a strong performance despite setbacks in the Bundesliga, it is evident that their attention is firmly set on advancing in the Champions League.

Despite challenges in the domestic league, Bayern remains a formidable opponent and will pose a significant threat to Arsenal in the upcoming fixture at the Allianz Arena.

Meanwhile, Arsenal faces a dual challenge as they continue their pursuit of the Premier League title while balancing their European commitments.

With a crucial clash against Aston Villa looming ahead of their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern, Mikel Arteta’s side is poised for a demanding schedule.
