Mikel Arteta attributes Arsenal’s progress toward the top of the Premier League table to the strong sense of unity and togetherness among his players.
With just 10 games remaining, Arteta’s team boasts an impressive eight-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.
The Gunners are scheduled to host Leeds on Saturday. If they perform well, they could be on their way to winning the club’s first English title since the impressive achievement of the ‘Invincibles’ in 2004 under the guidance of Arsene Wenger.
Despite briefly surrendering first place to City after a 3-1 loss, Arsenal has bounced back with an impressive winning streak of six consecutive league matches to regain control of the title race.
This season has proven to be quite the turnaround for Arsenal, who defied expectations after being written off as underdogs following their defeat to Tottenham in the race for a top-four finish last season.
Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, attributes his team’s surprising achievements to the tight-knit relationship shared among the players.
“Our team has found a balanced level of competition and cooperation where everyone is willing to support each other, yet they push each other to grow and raise the team’s standards, which is exactly what we strive for,” commented Arteta in an interview with Sky Sports.
Perhaps their strength lies in the deep sense of unity and solidarity that they share among themselves.
“Spending time together is something they truly enjoy, playing together brings them immense pleasure, performing in front of our supporters is their favorite thing to do and they feel a deep connection to the club. This is an incredible and compelling force that shouldn’t be underestimated or ignored.”
