Arteta Confirms Premier League Trophy Will Be At Emirates For Arsenal vs Everton

Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, has affirmed that the Premier League trophy will be at the Emirates on Sunday, when they host Everton in their final fixture.

The Gunners have a slim chance of winning the title on the day if Manchester City drop points at home against West Ham.

Despite the disappointment of seeing City beat Tottenham to go top, Arteta still believes his side can come out on top on the final day of the season

Speaking to the Spanish media, Arteta said: “This is the nice part, fighting for the title until the last day.

“It will be the first time that the Premier League trophy will be there waiting at the Emirates since it was built, with red ribbons on it, because if we win and they don’t, it’s ours.”

EPL: Arsenal Will Not Win Title, Chelsea To Finish In Top Four – Robbie Savage

Robbie Savage, a former Blackburn Rovers midfielder, has made a Premier League prediction.

He predicted that Chelsea will finish in the Premier League top four despite their slow start.


He, however, warned Arsenal that they won’t win the title.

Chelsea are currently 12th in the table after winning just one of their opening four fixtures under new head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

But Savage is backing Pochettino to turn things around at Stamford Bridge.

He told Planet Sport Bet: “When Mauricio Pochettino was appointed I thought Chelsea would get in the top four, and I still believe that.

“They’ve signed so many good, hungry players and with a manager like Pochettino and the way he can develop players and teams, I think that Chelsea will still finish in the top four.

“With no European football the extra time on the training pitch is going to be so valuable to Pochettino.”

For Arsenal, Savage claimed that the Gunners will not emerge champions next May, despite going so close last term.

“Even with the acquisition of Declan Rice, I don’t think Arsenal can win the league, simply because of Manchester City.

“If City weren’t in the Premier League, then I think Arsenal would win it, but unfortunately for Arsenal, they are,” Savage said.

In 2013, Arsenal was on the verge of signing Kylian Mbappe.

Gilles Grimandi, a former Arsenal scout, recalled how the Gunners missed out on signing French football star Kylian Mbappe in 2013.

Kylian Mbappe.

Grimandi who worked as an Arsenal scout for 13 years, said they held talks with Mbappe before losing him to Monaco.

He told The Sun;

“The job of scouting is about finding but also missing players. For me, it is Kylian Mbappe. We just could not convince him.

“He was out of contract in June 2013 and we met him in February. If we could have convinced him to join, he would have changed the club. But he then decided on Monaco.

 “Arsenal were not always playing their best so it was quite complicated. At first it was easy, as soon as we talked to a player he wanted to sign it. However, if you are not getting results it is difficult to bring top players to help the team. That’s why it is important to stay at the top for as long as possible. It is so much easier. Yet the likes of Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah, who I watched develop, prove you should never forget the talent you have inside your club, even in difficult times.”
