Mikel Arteta says Arsenal are for sure in the Premier League title race after his side defeated league leaders Liverpool 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.
Going into the match, the Gunners were five points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side, meaning it was a must-win match to reignite the title race. A win for Liverpool would have seen them go eight points clear, which would’ve pushed Arsenal further out of the picture.
When asked after the dominant victory if Arsenal are in the title race this season, Arteta said: “We are there, that’s for sure and we want to continue to be there.
“I think we’ve been really consistent the whole of the season. We’re not where we are today [without that].
“We go game-by-game, the availability of the squad is going to be crucial, and we have learned that from last season. So let’s try to make that happen.”
