In this article, you will get all information regarding Arsenal showed they have ‘everything you need to win a Premier League title’ as legends Thierry Henry and Arsene Wenger watched Mikel Arteta salute the former boss
Arsenal have sent another message to those who doubted their Premier League titles ahead of two men who now know exactly what it takes to win one.
Club legends Thierry Henry and Arsene Wenger were in attendance at the Emirates Stadium on Boxing Day as the Gunners came from behind to beat West Ham 3-1.
Mikel Arteta’s men were perhaps unfortunate to have a half-time goal – West Ham’s first game via a Said Benrahma penalty – having dominated possession and threatened to open up the Hammers defense to plenty occasions.
In the past, the Gooners faithful would have blamed the players, who would then wither under the toxic atmosphere.
But this season has been different for the north Londoners and by the time referee Michael Oliver blew the final whistle the pitch was in jubilation as Arsenal turned the game around thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah in the second half. demonstration of excellent resolution.
The result sees Arsenal extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points and talkSPORT’s Alvin Martin believes Arteta’s men have shown they have what it takes to go all the way.
“They didn’t give West Ham time to catch their breath. It takes a lot of conviction and know-how to achieve that,” Martin said.
“This West Ham side have a lot of ability, I’ve never seen Declan Rice get dispossessed or put under pressure when he had so much possession of the ball.

“It tells me that they don’t just have attacking technique and philosophy, it tells me that they have courage, character, solidarity, know-how, intelligence, all the things you need to win a title.”
Wenger had a penchant for winning titles for Arsenal, three in the space of seven Premier League seasons to be precise, during their splendour.
The Frenchman was eyeing his beloved Arsenal at the Emirates for the first time since leaving his role as Gunners boss in May 2018, and Arteta, who played under Wenger, was delighted to have him back.
“It’s very special because Stan and Josh [Kroenke] are also here,” Arteta told talkSPORT.
“Arsene is finally back with us and I think we really needed it because he needs to feel how much everyone loves him, everything he left here…I have a lot of admiration for him.”
The idea that being in the lead at Christmas means it’s your title to lose is somewhat misleading this term, as we’re not as far into the season as usual.
Arteta has steered his team away from title talks all season and admitted there was a belief in the side, but was quick to make sure he wasn’t looking too far ahead.
“There’s a lot of conviction but there’s also a lot of humility,” Arteta said.
“Brighton is going to be a very tough test, the way they are playing is going to make it very difficult for us and we are going to start preparing for that tomorrow.”
