Kai Havertz said he "doesn't want to have a day off" as he enjoys every second of this title race between Arsenal and Manchester City.

The German won the penalty for Arsenal's opening goal in their 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth which moved them four points ahead of City, ahead of their match at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers later in the day.

"I'm really enjoying it - it's brilliant for me personally," Havertz told the club website. "The other players especially make it quite easy for me, so I enjoy my role, try to work hard in training and try to help the team.

“I really enjoy every second, sometimes I don’t feel like I don’t even want to have a day off because you’re just so excited for the weekend and really want to work with the team, try to get everything out of us to be better prepared and we do that every single day."

Arsenal have two matches remaining, at Manchester United next weekend before finishing the season at home to Everton

“It’s going to be two tough games [left]," said Havertz. "We have a lot to play for.

"We have to win those games and then see where we’re going to go. Right now, though, the mood is good but we’re going to prepare now for the big game this week against Manchester United and hopefully win that as well.”

Mikel Arteta gave praise to his striker's performance.

"He was unbelievable today, honestly," the Arsenal manager said. "Everything that he did, intelligent, timing, the movements, how he keeps the ball, the way he goes to the press, how he links the play, understanding of the game."
