Mikel Arteta names club that will make life difficult for Arsenal in title race

Brighton is the team that would present a real threat to Arsenal's title hopes, according to Mikel Arteta.To increase their advantage over Manchester City to seven points, the Gunners defeated West Ham United in their Boxing Day Premier League match on Monday.

With goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and Eddie Nketiah in a second-half show of outstanding tenacity, Mikel Arteta's team overcame a deficit to defeat the Hammers at the Emirates Stadium.They will face high-flying Brighton in their ensuing match, a team that has disrespected powerful opponents this year.

Many people think that because Arsenal was in first place at Christmas, the title is now theirs to lose. However, Arteta distanced his team from title talk.Arteta told talkSPORT, "There is a lot of belief, but there is a lot of humility as well.

Brighton is going to be a very tough test for us, and we're going to start preparing for that tomorrow, he said. "The way they play, they're going to make it really hard for us."
