Mikel Arteta has gotten off to a perfect start this season, winning all four games against Fulham, Bournemouth, Leicester City and Crystal Palace, perching at the top of the Premier League table on 12 points.
This incredible start means they’re the only side this season to have a 100% win record, putting them 2 points ahead of Premier League Champions Manchester City.
The Gunners’ good run of form has already had football fans speculating that the north London side has already established themselves as one of this year’s title contenders.
However, Arsenal boss Arteta has remained humble, pointing out the fundamental fact that the campaign is a marathon and there’s still a long way to the finish line.
“No, I think it’s just the start of the season,” Arteta told Sky Sports when asked if Arsenal are now title contenders, as quoted by 90min.
“This is a long, long marathon. Everybody has to suffer at some stage. We’re on a good run and we have to try to maintain it.
“Absolutely not [getting carried away]. Be humble and hungry.”
