Arteta reveals what it will take for Arsenal to win the Premier League

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta believes his side are good enough to win the Premier League title – but need to perform consistently to get over the line. 

The Gunners exhibited their title credentials on Saturday by beating Burnley 5-0 at Turf Moor, thanks to goals from Martin Odegaard, Leandro Trossard and a Bukayo Saka brace.

Arteta‘s men have now scored 11 goals in their last two games and won all five of their league games in 2024.


“Individually and collectively, the purpose they are playing with, the form the players are in, even at 3-0, 4-0 they want more,” he told BBC Match of the Day after the final whistle.

“The way they track back at 96 minutes tells you how they are feeling. It’s about maintaining momentum now.

“We are generating competition within the squad. They are a joy to work with, the way they train every day and apply themselves, and how they want to improve.

“They want more – that’s the good thing.”

The result keeps Arsenal without two points of leaders Liverpool in the Premier League table and temporarily ahead of champions Manchester City.

“At the moment all we can do is win our games and after our big two wins away from home we have a tough one in the Champions League at Porto.

“I hope we can do it [win the title] because we are there but it is about consistency and you see the standards of the other teams. We want it, that’s for sure.”
