Opposition View: ‘Arsenal have a great chance to win the Premier League but Man City thrive under pressure’

We caught up with Arsenal fan Isabella Webster ahead of our Boxing Day clash

Michail Antonio (WHU) Gabriel Martinelli (A) at the Arsenal v West Ham United EPL match, at the Emirates Stadium, London, UK on 11th December, 2021.

With just five goals in 14 appearances, did you expect more from Jesus?

I’m happy with how Jesus has been performing this season. Of course I would like him to be scoring more goals and so would other Arsenal fans but Jesus’ work ethic is brilliant.

Arsenal got into the Europa League this season. Is it vital you win that or are your priorities elsewhere?

Winning the Europa league is a priority for us as it’s a trophy and also a way into Champions League football. The Premier League is also a huge priority to us right now as we’re getting great results but I would say it’s important that we do our best to go for the Europa League

What do you think has been Arteta’s secret behind Arsenal’s flying start to the season?

How things ended last season had a massive impact on the vibe around the team. Some poor performances and results at the end of the season led to us missing out on the top four. I would say one thing that has really changed the team is some of the signings we made and players that Arteta let go really changed us, which has made us a different team with a better mentality.

You’ve only lost one game and drawn one whilst teams like Man City, Newcastle and Tottenham have lost and drawn more. Do you believe you can win the Premier League this season?

I would love to say that we could win the Premier League this season and with the way we’re performing there’s a great chance that we could, but always remember City thrive under pressure.

Can you see Arteta going to Barcelona if his success at Arsenal carries on?

I don’t see Arteta going anywhere for the foreseeable future as most people know how much he loves this club. He’s bought us fans, players and the club together again. I haven’t seen the fanbase this happy with the club and team in a long time. It’s brilliant.

Who does more running up and down the touch line the lino or Arteta?

This is a brilliant question as I couldn’t even give you the answer. Everytime I’m at the Emirates, I always see Arteta moving up and down that touch line so fast as he loves interacting with the players and always seems to have something to say to the ref. From what I’ve seen, it wouldn’t surprise me if he does more running on that touch line.
