Mikel Arteta has sent a word of warning for any side looking to bring an end to Arsenal’s incredible 3-month unbeaten league run.
The Premier League leaders head into tonight’s clash with high-flying Brentford full of confidence and the Spaniard has sent an ominous message to their rivals.
‘We’re unbeaten in the league since May and still in all the cup competitions, the 39-year-old told Paddy Power News.
‘Every game between now and the end of the season will be like a cup final, except Paul Young won’t murder the national anthem before kick-off’.
‘Perhaps it’s a little premature for ‘The Invincibles’ comparisons with 38 games still to go but I’m sure those 2004 lads would be flattered nonetheless’.
‘Unless Accrington Stanley somehow get promoted to the Premier League, I don’t think any team can knock us off top spot’.
The Gunners’ impressive form has brought the feel-good factor back to the Emirates with chants of ‘we are top of the league’ heard outside the stadium today.
It also appears to have repaired the relationship between the fans and their manager with ‘Wenger In’ placards and banners no longer on display around the ground.
‘I’m feeling the love from the supporters – particularly my pals on AFTV’, grinned Arteta.
Meanwhile, the Gunners have ended their interest in James Maddison because it was never going to happen, Paddy Power News understands.
Instead, the North London outfit will switch their attentions to dropping a glorious looking fourth kit as a means of distracting fans until the transfer window closes.
‘With four kits to chose from and no European football this season, players will be spoilt for choice domestically’, read a statement on Arsenal’s official website.
It’s believed Maddison will remain at Leicester and continue to be a Wish.com version of Jack Grealish until the end of the season.
