Mikel Arteta has further expressed the need for his team to improve on a lot of things despite their current momentum.

Arsenal’s impressive run in the current season has seen them taking a very strong shot at the premier league title which they last won in 2003/2004 ‘invincible season’

Speaking ahead of their game against Newcastle on Tuesday, the manager said the team has been performing well and the title is achievable in the face of being realistic.

“It’s not about stopping anybody. It’s about being realistic about where we are. The way we are performing, obviously it’s impressive and we are really happy with that.

“But we also have to set the bars and objectives in the short term for what we want to improve and see what is making us win so many football matches.”

The victory against Brighton has once again tilted the talk of the league to the Gunner’s side, yet Arteta said the boys need to improve as a team even as he noted that the ecstasy in the camp is interesting.

“It’s great,” Arteta said. “When I see those interactions, I see enjoyment and I see joy and happiness because they were really excited after a big win for us.

“But they are also moderate and understanding as well. We still have a lot of things that we have to improve as a team”

While Arsenal are the only Premier League team with a 100 per cent winning record at home this season (7/7), Newcastle begins 2023 in third place after losing just once all campaign, and Arteta expects a tough test.

“They’re a very good team, really well coached,” Arteta said. “I think what Eddie [Howe] has done in that short period of time, when you look at the numbers, is incredible.

“Big credit to him and the coaching staff. They have created, I believe, a momentum around the team that they play the same way against any opponent
