Named by Arteta as the player who could have altered Arsenal’s championship destiny

According to Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, if he could have chosen one Premier League player to take advantage of a situation that could have put the Gunners in control of the title battle, it would have been Son Heung-min of Tottenham.

In order to break their title drought of two decades, Arsenal must hope that West Ham beats Manchester City in the other semifinal match. They face Everton in the final match.

After their recent 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City moved two points clear of Arsenal in the standings.

City would retain the Premier League title if they beat West Ham at the Etihad Stadium.

Even if they were dependent on West Ham, Arsenal might have been better off.

After intercepting a pass from Manuel Akanji, Son had a golden chance to equalize for City in their match against Tottenham. However, Stefan Ortega, City’s goalkeeper, saved his effort.

Arteta reflected on the lost opportunity and reiterated his confidence in Son’s skills as Arsenal prepared to face Everton on Sunday.

He would have been the Premier League player I would have picked at that point, Arteta said.

To emphasize the beauty and unpredictability of sports, he drew a comparison to Michael Jordan’s experience with clutch shots.

There was anticipation, but it fell through. Everton is having a strong run right now, so we have to execute our job, which Arteta said would be difficult.
