How Mikel Arteta performed in the 2023–24 season?

Arteta's Gunners pushed Man City to the wire, with the Sky Blues clinching an unprecedented fourth consecutive English top-flight title after their final-day victory over West Ham.

Despite only securing the Community Shield in the 2023–24 campaign, Arsenal had one of their best-ever Premier League seasons.

Finishing with 89 points, the North London side chalked up a club milestone of 28 wins from 38 fixtures.

Additionally, they scored a record 91 goals and remained unbeaten against any of the 'Big Six' teams.

His performance with the Gunners saw the 44-year-old surpass his former boss and mentor, Pep Guardiola, to be crowned the 'Best Premier League Coach' at the awards ceremony in Sardinia, Italy, GOAL reports.

Gradually, he has transformed the Gunners into genuine Premier League title challengers, narrowly missing out on league glory in consecutive seasons, finishing as runners-up both times.

Arteta fires strong warning ahead of next season

After winning the top coaching award, Arteta was asked about Arsenal's future, to which he issued a rallying cry, promising to continue pursuing success.

"We want to win. Win, win, and win. That’s what we want," he said, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.
Arteta continued: “We have a team full of enthusiasm and so hungry to win trophies, we believe we can do it. So, we’re going to give it a real go.”

Journalist points out where Arsenal lost PL title

In a previous report by Sports Brief, FIFA and CAF-accredited journalist Adepoju Tobi criticised Arsenal for faltering at a critical moment.

Adepoju argued that Arsenal effectively conceded the title to Manchester City after their defeat to Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium.

The Villans completed a season double over the London club, securing victories both home and away.
