Arteta Sets Clear Title Ambition for Arsenal, Reveals Points Target to Squad

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has set a clear target for his team, stating that they will need to accumulate at least 90 points to win the Premier League title.

Currently sitting five points behind leaders Liverpool in third place with 58 points, Arteta acknowledges the challenge ahead. Winning all 12 remaining games would put Arsenal at 94 points, but they face tough away fixtures against the likes of the reigning champions, Brighton, Tottenham, and Manchester United.

Reflecting on their performance last season, where Arsenal led by five points after 26 games but faltered towards the end, Arteta emphasized the need for consistency.

He believes that anything below 90 points would make winning the title very difficult.
Despite setbacks earlier in the season, including consecutive defeats in London derbies, Arteta senses a renewed determination among his players.

With six consecutive Premier League wins to start the year, he sees a clear focus and commitment in training, instilling confidence in their chances of success.

At Sheffield United, Arteta could pair Declan Rice and Thomas Partey together in midfield for the first time since the Community Shield.

“I think they only played in the Community Shield together in midfield,” said the Spaniard. “That tells you how much we have missed Thomas. To play the whole season and a player like him who has not played much with us. The impact he can have for the next 3 months can be really big.

“He can also help Declan as well. I will have to see that chemistry on the pitch and those qualities and the things we have to treat around to make sure they play to their strengths and make each other better.

“But I think that will be a very powerful midfield.”
