The pressure is mounting at the Gunners, but club coach Mikel Arteta tried to bring it down on Tuesday in front of the press. Indeed, the Spaniard confirmed that the meeting was going “to be very important, yes”but not decisive as to the outcome of the championship: “If we win tomorrow night, we haven’t won the championship. It’s going to affect the percentages and our chances of success a bit, but with five games left it will still be very tricky..

Currently, Arsenal are leaders in the PL, with 5 points more than Manchester City, but Pep Guardiola’s side are two games behind the Gunners.

A loan will leave

Far from the tension that reigns at the Emirates Stadium before the clash of PL against Cityzens, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, under contract with Arsenal but on loan at Southampton this season, spoke about his future with the Gunners. Quoted several weeks ago as a possible starter next summer, the 25-year-old winger confirmed the rumor in an interview with The Athletic : “It was a great adventure (at Arsenal) but it is now over. It’s time to start fresh and find a new home. I’m very excited, but at the same time I’m not in my head yet because of what’s going on at Southampton.

Last in the Premier League, Southampton is a serious candidate for the descent into D2. Which doesn’t seem to scare Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who would “happy to stay” if the Saints make him a contract offer. Indeed, the Englishman is at the end of his lease at Arsenal this summer, and is already free to join another team.

This season, the winger hasn’t scored, and provided just one assist, in 23 appearances.
