Here is What Mikel Arteta thinks about Arsenal Chances of Winning the League

Arsenal Football Club suffered a huge blow in their quest to win the English Premier League for the first time in 19 years when they visited the Etihad Stadium.

The Gunners came into the game low on confidence after failing to find a win in three consecutive games ( Liverpool, West Ham United, and Southampton) for the first time this season. Manchester City thrashed Arsenal 4-1 in the title-deciding game of the season with a brace from Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland, and John Stones, while Arsenal's goal was scored by Rob Holding.

However, the manager of Arsenal, Mikel Arteta said nobody gave his team the chance of winning the title at the start of the season.

The stats said at the start of the season that Arsenal were going to finish sixth or seventh. We are where we are with five games to go. Those players deserve a lot of credit, to be where we are after nine and a half months. There are still five games to play. I’ve been in this country for nearly 22 years and I’ve seen a lot of things; I know how much it shifts from game to game. There are no two equal games in this league. First of all, we have to lift our players, because they suffered tonight. They played against an exceptional team - they know that. But we’re an exceptional team as well and today we weren’t at the races at the level that was required to win the game.

Arsenal still lead the league table with two points ahead of Manchester City. However the Cityzens have two games in hand over the Gunners.
