Contradanyc.com – Manchester City wins and believed in it to snatch a much-anticipated win in the game. Many strategies are used to win points and always compete with other clubs, one of which is Arsenal.
Arsenal managed to show promising performance at the beginning of this season. Mikel Arteta’s squad has recorded six wins from a total of seven matches they have played since the start of the 2022/2023 Premier League.
The Gunners won over Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Bournemouth, Fulham, Aston Villa and Brentford. Martin Odegaard and colleagues have only lost once when they travel to Manchester United (MU) in the sixth week of the Premier League.
This achievement led Arsenal to now sit at the top of the standings with a score of 18 points. Cannon London is one point ahead of Manchester City wins, who won the Premier League title last season.
For your information, the Gunners have always failed to break into the top four of the Premier League since the 2015/2016 campaign. They were also only able to finish fifth after being two points behind Tottenham Hotspur in the 2021/2022 season.
The arrival of a number of new recruits seems to make Arsenal more tested. Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko are present as additional ammunition for the London Cannon. William Saliba and Granit Xhaka were also important figures behind the Gunners’ brilliant performances.
However, former Chelsea player Frank Leboeuf still doubts Arsenal can present a challenge in the race for the Premier League title this season. The reason, Manchester City Wins is too tough to pass.
“Arsenal are great, and I want to give them all the credit they deserve,” Leboeuf told ESPN FC, as reported by Metro.
“They can try to follow (in the footsteps of) Manchester City, but I don’t think they can win the title because City are superior.”
Manchester City has indeed become a superior club in the Premier League in recent years. Pep Guardiola’s squad has won four of the five Premier League titles since the 2017/2018 season.
The Citizens have only been conceded by Liverpool in the 2019/2020 competition. At that time, Manchester City was only able to finish in second place in the final standings with a difference in points quite far from the Reds who inhabit the top.
The contrast situation experienced by Arsenal. His most recent achievement in the Premier League was being runner-up in the 2015/2016 season. They lost to Leicester City. After that, the Gunners never finished in the top four.
However, Liverpool legend Michael Owen has a different opinion. The former England national team player assesses Arsenal has shown a different level of play from the previous season. The fans deserve to be eagerly waiting for the achievements of the Gunners.
“I would be the first to call them weak in recent seasons because they are. However, now Arsenal have maturity even though there are many young players,” said Owen, quoted from Metro.
“Their performance is in a different class compared to last season. We can see from the number of games they have played, (the Gunners performed) well. They won the first five games.”
“If I was an Arsenal supporter – after a few (unsatisfactory) years – I would start feeling excited now,” he concluded.
Arsenal will again face a tough test after the international break. Mikel Arteta’s men must be involved in the inaugural North London derby of the season by serving against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday (1/10/2022).
After that, the Gunners will also be challenged by last season’s runners up. Arsenal are scheduled to meet Liverpool in a match which took place at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday (9/10/2022) at 22.30 WIB.
Arsenal will host Manchester City in Week 12 of the Premier League. However, the postponed Europa League match against PSV Eindhoven, which fell on October 21, 2022 at 00.00 WIB, forced the duel to be postponed.
