"I said at the start that Arsenal have got the same chance as the rest of us to win the league," he told reporters. "It's an open Premier League.
"They've had a really good start but it will only be decided at end of the season who will win it. We'll wait and see until then.
"Arsenal are coming to play the champions. They're in the top position at the moment, their form has been very good and they'll come here in good spirits. But we've had some growing momentum and we want to put on a good show."
Arsenal are currently two points clear at the top of the table.
