Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta knows Tuesday’s clash with Leicester City will be a hard task to navigate for his side. Arsenal is currently in seventh, eight points behind Chelsea in fourth but because of Manchester City’s ban from European football fifth could be enough to qualify for the Champions League. At one point of time, the season looked over for Arsenal when they suffered back to back defeats after football resumed but now they are seven points off the champions league spots but have some crucial matches coming up against Leicester City, Tottenham and Liverpool.
Mikel Arteta said “I think we have to win every game and then wait and pray, It’s not about a game, we need to go game by game. A few weeks ago we were really far from thinking about Europe and we are a little bit closer at the moment so lets go game by game and see where that takes us. I think Brendan and his staff have completely changed the style of play and the way they approach games, It’s very clear what they are trying to do and they are very dominant. It’s one of the teams that has better possession in very difficult areas as well in the Premier League, they’ve been really consistent even though they’ve had some difficulties in the last few weeks but since they joined Leicester they completely changed the way they are playing. I think they proved against big teams as well that they can sustain that influence against stronger teams and credit to them for what they’ve done.”
