Arteta insists Arsenal needs to earn Champions right

0 18

Mikel Arteta insists his Arsenal side need to earn the right to become Premier League champions, rather than rely on any possible sanctions imposed upon title rivals Manchester City.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta believes his side needs to work hard to get points in order for them to be crowned the Champions of the Premier League rather than relying on punishment on second place Manchester City.

Arsenal sit five points clear of the holders heading into this weekend’s fixtures and the top two clash at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

The game will take place with a cloud hanging over the visitors, who have been accused of more than 100 alleged rule breaches.

City have denied wrongdoing but could face stringent sanctions if they are found to have broken spending regulations by an independent commission.

Points deductions, expulsion from the league and severe financial penalties would all be on the table – but for Arteta, he wants his side to challenge for the title on the pitch.

“We have to look after our own garden,” he replied when asked if Arsenal have to be prepared to take advantage of any distraction caused at City.

“Let’s focus on what we have to do and win enough football matches for that to happen. We have to earn the right to win it, that’s for sure.”
