Mikel Arteta emphasised Arsenal’s need to maintain belief in their ability to outpace Manchester City for the Premier League title, as he readies his team to take on a struggling Manchester United today.

Despite Arsenal’s poor record at Old Trafford, where they have only won once in the league since 2006, they are facing a United team in disarray under manager Erik ten Hag.

Arteta stressed the importance of his players staying focused, even though they do not have control over the title race.

“We have to think it is going to work and what’s going to work is that we try to be better than our opponents and beat them and the final outcome, that will be something else,” the Spaniard said.

“At the moment that is not in our control. We know the difficulty in our history when you look at what we’ve done over there (at Old Trafford) so we’re going to have to be at our best to earn the right to win the game.”

Arteta cautioned that Manchester United, despite only winning two of their last 10 league matches, still pose a threat. In the previous encounter at the Emirates Stadium in September, United forward Alejandro Garnacho’s late goal was disallowed for offside, allowing Arsenal to clinch a 3-1 victory with two late goals.

Meanwhile, Manchester City pursues a historic fourth consecutive Premier League title, following their win against Fulham on Saturday, taking them two points clear above Arsenal on the table.

“They’ve been on an unbelievable journey in the last 10 or 15 years but we want to change that. We’re trying to do everything we can to improve and get better and better,” said Arteta, who previously worked as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at City.

“You have to keep improving and try to be better than them when you face them head-to-head and in a long, long, long season with a lot of demands in this league.

“It’s been an unbelievable journey (for Arsenal) in every sense with a lot of changes. We have come far from where we were, that’s true, but there’s still a lot to come.”
