The Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta was given a one-year extension by Arsene Wenger last summer, but only managed to make two starts in the whole campaign due to ongoing injury problems. He still made good use of the year by studying for his coaching exams and working with the youth sides to gain extra experience on the coaching side.
The two big moneybags tems in the Premier League meet this afternoon at Stamford Bridge. We all hate Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, and Man City have snuck through to win the title twice in the last few years, but who do Arsenal fans want to win the game.
