The Gunners are five points clear of second-placed Manchester City with a game in hand on the champions.
Mikel Arteta says Arsenal can have no excuses if they do not win the Premier League title for the first time in two decades after strengthening their squad during the January transfer window.
Arteta splashed out more than £50 million (Rs 502crore) on three new signings, Italy midfielder Jorginho, Belgium forward Leandro Trossard and Poland defender Jakub Kiwior. The Gunners are five points clear of second-placed Manchester City with a game in hand on the champions.
Arteta was asked on Friday about whether there would now be no excuses if Arsenal failed to get over the line. “If you want to put it that way, that’s fine... I’m really happy with what we’ve done. We knew that in this market you have to adapt and be flexible and ready for inconvenience. We’ve done that. Arteta said ahead of Saturday’s trip to struggling Everton.
Arsenal have yet to win at Goodison Park under Arteta and the Spaniard knows Everton could get a boost from the appointment of new boss Sean Dyche. “When there is a new manager the environment will change, so it’s going to be a really tough test.”
