Premier League

Arteta explains title mindset as Arsenal sits top of the table

As Arsenal leads the Premier League standings and faces the potential of playing Manchester City, Arteta explains the title mindset.

Arsenal's strong start to the season and the possibility of competing with Manchester City for the Premier League title, according to Mikel Arteta, should not cause them to lose focus.

Arsenal leads the table after eight games and has just suffered one loss this year.

Arsenal maintained first place with a 3-1 victory over Tottenham on Saturday. City closed the gap to one point yesterday with a 6-3 victory over Manchester United.

The next game for Arteta's team is on Thursday when they host Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League. The following weekend, they play Liverpool.

But Arteta argues that despite their lofty position, the Gunners are keeping their feet firmly planted in the ground.

Arteta added, "It's fantastic to always look at it and see the club where it is, in this situation. It's amazing and, obviously, makes you feel great.

"But we're committed. Believe me, they are a really humble and hungry crew. Where we are is known.

"We haven't done anything yet, and there are still lots of things to improve, so that's the course we are going in.

We are still at the beginning, but we are content with where we are and aware that you cannot control everything.

Ramsdale also spoke on the subject, warning against fans becoming overexcited because the Gunners have eight more games this month during a busy time.

You people are considering that, but Ramsdale stated, "We just go into every game with a big smile on our face hoping to win the game.

"When we succeed, we rejoice; if not, we review our actions and try again.

We're a young team, so we basically go into a game hoping to have fun and succeed. After that, we'll see where that leads.

We have three different competitions this month leading up to the World Cup, and we aim to win each and every one of them. After those competitions, we'll assess our position before the break because, at the end of the day, we want to win trophies.

But we have eight games left. With teams like Man City, something always goes wrong. When they were 14th at Christmas a few years back, they embarked on an insane run.

"We're just having a great time traveling right now, and long may it continue."
