Sport: The light blues from Manchester are in the driver’s seat in the battle for league gold before the last series round on Sunday.

Arsenal host Everton on home turf. The table situation means that the red shirts from London have to win their match to be able to become champions, and at the same time West Ham must get one or three points from Manchester.

David Moyes was for a number of years Arteta’s coach at Everton. Now the Spaniard is hoping for a handshake from the old boss.

– That is what is so wonderful about this industry. You meet people with whom you have wonderful experiences and who mean a lot to you personally. Now I’m the one who needs something from him. Hopefully it will happen, Arteta said at a press conference before the weekend’s series finale.

West Ham have beaten Arsenal twice this season, once in the League Cup and once in the Premier League. Arteta is clear that Sunday’s task will not be easy for Pep Guardiola, Erling Braut Haaland and the rest of the City machinery.

– They are playing against a tough opponent. West Ham are a very difficult team to beat. I’m sure they’re going to be screwed, and hopefully they can help make our dream come true,” continued Arteta.

20 years have passed since Arsenal last won the Premier League. Then they played their matches at venerable Highbury. On Sunday, they can potentially lift their first league trophy at their new home ground.
