Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has attributed the team’s success this season to their unity and togetherness. The Gunners are currently leading the Premier League table with 69 points after 28 games, closely followed by second-placed Manchester City with 61 points and a game in hand.
Arteta believes that the key to Arsenal’s success is the right level of competition and cooperation among the players. He said as per The Mirror, “They really want to help each other, but they have to challenge each other as well to benefit the team and lift the standards that we want.”
The Arsenal manager also highlighted the sense of belonging that the players have towards the club. He said, “They love to spend time with each other, they love to play with each other, they love to play in front of our people and they really have that sense of belonging to the club. That’s very powerful, I think.”
Arsenal’s success this season has been built on a solid defensive foundation, with goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and defenders William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes impressing in particular. The midfield duo of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka have also been instrumental in controlling games and providing a platform for attacking players such as Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that their team can maintain their form until the end of the season and win their first Premier League title since 2004. With Arteta at the helm and a united squad behind him, anything is possible for this talented Arsenal side.
