As Arsenal navigates the pressure-cooker environment of a Premier League title race, manager Mikel Arteta has revealed that he has sought guidance from a familiar face: legendary former Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger. Arteta, who played under Wenger during his time as an Arsenal midfielder, has tapped into his former mentor’s vast experience to gain insights into navigating the challenges of a title run-in.

Speaking to The Standard, Arteta acknowledged the conversations he has had with Wenger: “I have spoken to him a few times. There were certain topics about how they won it and the later stages.” Wenger’s Arsenal teams were renowned for their resilience and ability to secure crucial victories in the final stretch of the season, making his advice invaluable for Arteta as he aims to emulate his predecessor’s success.

Arteta further elaborated on the specific areas of focus in his discussions with Wenger: “He used to talk about that when I was a player. It is always there, in the hard drive. For this time of the season, at the end it is about finding a way to win the game. And that is it. You can do it in various ways when you look at how they won the titles.”

Wenger’s emphasis on finding ways to win, regardless of the circumstances, is a valuable lesson for Arteta and his team as they face the pressure of maintaining their lead at the top of the table. The ability to grind out results, even when not playing at their best, will be crucial in determining Arsenal’s title fate.

Arteta also highlighted Wenger’s insights on the importance of individual moments and player contributions: “And how they won certain games with very very, very close margins. He always talked about that, about the fine margins and who is going to step up on the occasion to make it happen.” This underscores the need for players to seize crucial moments and deliver when it matters most.

As Arsenal continues their pursuit of Premier League glory, Arteta’s willingness to learn from the experience and wisdom of Arsène Wenger demonstrates his dedication to success and his understanding of the unique challenges of a title race. The insights gained from these conversations could prove invaluable as Arsenal aims to secure their first Premier League title since Wenger’s Invincibles in 2004.
