ARSENAL SUPPORTERS, GOOD MORNING!

Arsenal’s Thomas Partey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are in contention to play in this evening’s tea-time game against Liverpool, where they will ‘test’ their comeback.

After recovering from a groin strain, midfielder Partey is back in full training, while Aubameyang is hoping to be fit after sustaining an injury while on international duty with Gabon.

Mikel Arteta believes Arsenal should aim for more than Champions League qualification now that they are unbeaten in ten games.

“This club is about being the best, not even fourth,” he explained.

“That history must be present at all times, providing us with the motivation and mentality to achieve the most ambitious goals.”

“Going to Anfield is always a test,” the Spaniard continued, “but if you can do that, there aren’t many grounds as good as there to feel like you’re a proper footballer.”

“You must be at your best, emotionally, physically, and tactically, because if you don’t, you will be exposed.”

Arsenal’s ascension to fifth place, while Tottenham’s slide to ninth, comes as no surprise to Nuno Tavares, who is in fine form.

“I don’t know why people are so surprised,” the Portuguese left-back said.

“It’s important for people to realize we’re Arsenal.”

And, according to Tavares, a strong backcourt is a big reason for the turnaround.

“The whole team enjoys defending,” he said.

“With every ball, we’re aggressive, and we don’t like conceding goals.”

That is the key to good defense.”

Finally, Arteta has refused to discuss the futures of Alexandre Lacazette and Mohamed Elneny, who play in the midfield.

Lacazette is expected to be offered a short-term contract by Arsenal next summer, while Elneny is expected to join Galatasaray in January.

As a result of his massive Emirates clear-out, the Gunners boss believes there is a new spirit of optimism sweeping through the club.

Arteta was still on the stage…
