Arteta confident ahead of City clash

Mikel Arteta has said that he believes that Arsenal can repeat the Chelsea performance against Manchester City as well. Many doubters were proved wrong early on in the season when Arsenal ran out 5-3 winners over Chelsea.

It was one of the best performances by the Arsenal team, despite the lack of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas. Mikel Arteta has said that Arsene Wenger has the capability to produce a number of good players for the team and that the departure of a few players will not weaken them. After a poor start to the season, Arsenal have emerged as one of the major contenders for the title come the end of the season.

However, in order to be recognised by everybody that they are worthy challengers for the title, Arsenal do need to beat Manchester City when they face the League leaders at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. Recent performances show that Manchester City are likely to excel in this fixture given that they have been having an excellent record over Arsenal in recent seasons. However, they have just suffered their first league defeat of the season and have also been expelled out of the Champions League. Arsenal, meanwhile, have progressed into the last 16 of the Champions League that they will be facing AC Milan.

“We beat Chelsea at their place, so why not repeat the experience against City? That City lost at Stamford Bridge last week isn’t good or bad for us. We must always approach games looking for the three points and that won’t change, even though they are first,” Mikel Arteta said when asked about his team’s chances of getting a victory at the Etihad Stadium. Robin van Persie is just four short of creating a new Premier League record for scoring in a calendar year.
