There have been just four games this season and so one can argue that is not enough to start judging the players but I would suggest that the problem of consistency among Arsenal players has been an issue for a lot more than just four games.
One of the biggest frustrations I feel watching Arsenal is the lack of consistency from one game to the next and already this season I have to say that almost every single Arsenal player has been inconsistent.
Now, please note that I said almost every single Arsenal player, not every single one.
I accept that there are mitigating circumstances with some players but it does not change the fact that, in my opinion, only one Arsenal player has been consistent this season.
That player is Alexandre Lacazette and that was by virtue of him not seeing action against Liverpool until the last ten minutes otherwise he may well have registered a poor game.
Dani Ceballos played brilliantly against Burnley but disappointed against Liverpool, Nicolas Pepe has been up and down and was poor against Tottenham, Pierre-Emerick Aubaameyang was anonymous against the Reds and so on.
And for those that want to argue the point, I would like to direct you towards the end of last season in the games against Leicester City, Wolves, Chelsea etc.
Players do have off games, even the best players in the world but generally speaking those at the highest level do play consistently well for a huge percentage of the season, I am not sure we have too many players that can claim that.
Arsenal would walk into a top-four spot easily if the players stayed consistent but the truth is, they do not and that is the difference between success and failure.
One last thought, when Leicester City won the title they did it because for almost the entire season their players were consistent when the top-six clubs players were not.
