In the latest episode of the Essential Football Podcast, Sky Sports features writer Nick Wright sits down with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta for an exclusive interview at the club’s training centre at London Colney.
Ahead of the Gunners’ crucial Premier League clash with West Ham – which is live on Sky Sports on Sunday – the Arsenal boss discusses how his side have adapted after injuries to Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey, the club’s summer transfer plans, why they cannot copy Liverpool’s route to the top and how his Arsenal project is developing. Are they ahead of schedule?
Arteta also talks the recent return of club legends Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry to the Emirates Stadium and the race for the top four.
