Win against Chelsea can take you to the Champions League – Mikel Arteta
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has said wins against teams like Chelsea can assure his team of a Champions League qualification spot.
Speaking to the media after the 4–2 win against Chelsea, Mikel Arteta said:
“What I love is the spirit of these players. When you lose matches you get punished and criticised but these players are growing.
“For us to win a London derby away the way we did, I’m really happy. I said to the players, if you want to play Champions League football you have to come to places like this and win. We wanted to give the fans something to believe in.”
Arsenal are still fifth in the Premier League table, level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham (57 points from 32 games.)
It looks like the fate of the top four will be decided when the two sides meet in the North London derby away at Spurs on May 12.
