Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta insists the Premier League title race is far from over despite his side securing a dramatic victory over Manchester United.
Arsenal came from behind to beat United 3-2 in a pulsating match at the Emirates on Sunday.
Marcus Rashford put the visitors ahead with a superb strike but equally as impressive goals from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka either side of half-time gave Arsenal the lead.
United levelled the scores through Lisandro Martinez's first goal for the club but Arsenal snatched all three points when Nketiah scored his second of the match from close range with just minutes remaining.
Arteta: We are still far from the title
Arsenal have lost just one league game all season, the reverse fixture at Old Trafford, but Arteta is taking nothing for granted – especially against defending champions Manchester City.
When asked to give his thoughts on the title race, Arteta said: "I don't have an opinion, it can be a perception, I know my team so well.
"I know where we are, I know we are here and I know where we want to be, and we are still far from that.
"I know the level of the other teams, especially one that has won everything in the last five or six years, and we are not there yet."
Arsenal have now reached 50 points at the halfway stage of the campaign, one of the strongest starts in Premier League history.
When asked if his team might have to break the 100-point barrier to win the title this season, Arteta added: "I don't know, obviously that number has been achieved in the past and those teams have the qualities to do that, that's for sure.
"But I don’t know what the number is going to be, but it's going to be really high for sure."
