Mikel Arteta says 100 wins isn’t ‘a title’

Mikel Arteta said he was happy to have achieved 100 wins as Arsenal manager, but was keen to insist that the achievement was not a “title”.

Arteta’s side were hugely influential at Craven Cottage, putting Fulham to the sword in the Premier League with a dominant first-half display in an eventual 3-0 victory.

Results It sees Arsenal five points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City in the title race, and it was also Arteta’s 100th win as manager of the club.

The former Manchester City assistant coach took over at Arsenal at the end of 2019 and has since won the FA Cup and overseen this season’s remarkable rise from top four contenders to title favourites.

When asked about 100 wins on the club’s official website, Arteta said: “It’s amazing [100 wins]We have to go on like this, I’m glad we did, unfortunately this isn’t a title, so there’s still a lot to improve.

“It’s unbelievable and it means we have a lot of people doing the right things at the club. In the squad, a lot of players contribute hugely and especially the support we have, which in my opinion has completely changed this team with that energy, so I’m really happy.”

Arteta will be hoping to achieve his 101st victory as Arsenal coach when Arsenal face Sporting Lisbon in the second leg of their Europa League Round of 16 on Thursday night.
