Mikel Arteta has hailed the resilience of Arsenal's draw with Manchester City last weekend and insisted his side will have to "leave your ego aside" if they are to pip Liverpool to their first Premier League title since 2004.

The Gunners drew 0-0 with Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday afternoon, which continued their strong performances against teams in and around the Premier League's top-six this season.

In failing to beat Pep Guardiola's side, though, Arsenal were leapfrogged by Liverpool at the top of the table ahead of the final nine games of the campaign.

However, Arteta was left impressed by the nature of his side's performance, despite seeing just 27% possession and managing six shots at the Etihad.

The Spaniard believes the resilience to keep Erling Haaland, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne at bay was a sign of his team's "really strong" mentality.

"You have to, sometimes because you want to adapt, sometimes you have to adapt and have that resilience," said Arteta when asked if Sunday's performance was a sign of his side's evolution.

"Leave your ego aside and your ideology aside and do what you have to do to win the game.

I thought the team was mentally really strong and clever the way they did it."

The Gunners face Luton Town at the Emirates on Wednesday night and know that should they defeat Rob Edwards' side, they can move back above Liverpool and return to the top of the Premier League, albeit temporarily, if the Reds defeat Sheffield United at Anfield 24 hours later.

Arteta is hopeful top-scorer Bukayo Saka will be available for selection after limping off against Manchester City on Sunday, though long-term absentee Jurrien Timber will continue to be sidelined as he continues his recovery from an ACL injury he suffered on his Premier League debut back in August.
