Mikel Arteta has a plan. He has been trying to shown it on the field since he arrived to the ‘Gunners’ bench back in 2020, but it was not until last season when the Spanish coach’s idea began to work out. His Arsenal is one of the most recognizable teams in the entire Premier League and their similarity to the football that the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola practices will end up paying off.
The beginning of this new season is very exciting for the team from the north of London. Seven victories in their first eight games in the Premier League allow them to currently be on top of the table.
But the best news for them are not just their two wins, but the way they have picked them up. Arsenal have been able to build a roster full of young players that works out perfectly and where everyone knows his role.
Furthermore, the additions of both Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko, especially the Brazilian, as they have added that extra quality that the ‘Gunners’ missed last year in the race to reach the fourth spot.
The Brazilian striker has opened up his scoring account with his brace against Leicester City and he will certainly provide with a lot of joy to the team of Mikel Arteta.
Other players such as Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Ben White, among others, are some of the young promising players that are establishing themselves in the club. The Englishman winger is one of the most appreciated by the crowd.
Along with this group players, there are some others in charge of adding experience such as Thomas Partey or Granit Xhaka, who balance a roster that this season will have to access the Champions League.
There is no doubt that this should be one of the most exciting seasons recently for Mikel Arteta’s team. The squad is finally in the right track after several seasons where the doubts and disappointments were all around the situation of Arsenal.
Four years after the departure of the most successful coach in the history of the club, Arsène Wenger, Arsenal FC finally start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
