Are Arsenal proving that last season was not a fluke?

Arsenal’s Consistency and Memorable Victory

Arsenal have been demonstrating their consistency in the early stages of this season, dispelling any notions of being a one-hit wonder. They’ve shown their ability to compete in every game they’ve played, including the recent 2-2 draw with Fulham.

Among their four games, the 3-1 victory over Manchester United stands out as the most memorable heading into the international break. Despite Manchester United’s recent struggles, they remain a team capable of causing upsets. However, on this occasion, it wasn’t Arsenal who fell victim to an upset.

While some might argue that the result was somewhat fortunate, with United having a goal disallowed for offside in the dying minutes, Arsenal’s clinical finishing ability was on full display as they scored two late goals to defeat a top-six rival.

Although it’s still early in the Premier League season, Manchester City appears to be the front-runner. Nevertheless, Arsenal has shown that they are a force to be reckoned with. Under the guidance of Mikel Arteta, the team seems to have a clear plan and identity.

Arsenal fans have reason to be optimistic about this season, thanks to Arteta. The Gunners have regained their footing, and their clinical finishing makes them a formidable opponent. The addition of very promising players like Declan Rice and Havertz, along with the growth of young talents like Bukayo Saka and Martinelli, further enhances their prospects.

While Arsenal has faced challenges recently, there is a sense that they are on an upward trajectory. Their recent performances indicate that they are better prepared to compete at the highest level. Whether they can maintain this level of form and contend for major titles remains to be seen, but it’s an exciting time for Arsenal fans.

It’s hoped that those who doubted Arsenal’s success last season as a fluke are beginning to acknowledge that they are indeed a team with sustained potential and not a one-hit wonder.

  1. Surely too early to say? In some ways I hope it was fluke – the last bit at least. The first two thirds were great, and we have to hope that Arteta will develop the team and tactics he wants to build on that.

  2. Yes, Arsenal have shown that they’re the real deal

    Unfortunately, Timber and Partey are injured. If they were fit, I would’ve been more confident about our chances in EPL and UCL

    1. Pathey will be back hopefully in 6 weeks according to reports. It’s Timber injury that pained me the most, he was so good in his little cameo and would have benched Zichenko.

      1. Yes, Timber was excellent in pre-season and in the first half of our first EPL game

        Hopefully he can return to his best form after recovering. We had too many players who couldn’t regain their levels because of long-term injuries

  3. Not proven anything yet really although, we fought to the very hard against Manure in the dying minutes. We were sloppy against Fullam. The only time we will truly know is at the end of the season and look at total points. For now though it’s a case of cross the fingers..

  4. The headline wrongly presupposes that at least some of us have thought that last seasons second place was a fluke! And that assumption is IMO a really insulting one to our collective intelligence.

  5. currently they are not very impressive like in the beginning of last season thus making last season seem like it was indeed a fluke. We have been beating Manutd comfortably at the Emirates since Fergie left so beating them doesn’t prove anything.

  6. Last season was certainly no fluke but we have to be better this season. Apart from City, teams like Liverpool and Newcastle will challenge Arsenal for the title. That said, certainly the addition of Decklan Rice is a game changer but the same cannot be said about Havertz, atleast not now. If he proves himself, Havertz could be a great signing. Arsenal were unfortunate to lose Timber so early in the season, hopefully, he comes back towards the end of the season, he showed his potential and talent in the minutes that he got with Arsenal. The season is long and Arsenal will have to have consistently good performances to be in the reckoning towards the end. Remember, we have CL football this season and the squad depth will come into play, every player will have to be ready to perform well.
