Arsenal has set another impressive record in the Premier League this season as they march towards winning the title.
The Gunners have spent the most time atop the standings and are refusing to give up that spot, despite being chased by Manchester City.
Their recent result was a 4-1 win against Crystal Palace, which moves them eight points clear of City in the standings.
Opta Joe reveals that win was their 22nd of the season, a new club record.
They tweeted: “Arsenal have earned their 22nd Premier League win of the season, as many as they managed in the whole of last term, and the Gunners’ most ever wins in their first 28 matches of a league campaign. Pursuit.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
To win the league after two decades, we must break records, which shows how well we have done in this campaign.
Records are meant to be broken, but if you do not work hard, you will not even get close to achieving that.
This is one of the best chances we have to win the title and if we don’t take it, it could demoralise our players when they return for the next campaign.
The best thing about this season is we are overachieving in the 3rd year of a 5 year plan to get the team built.
I don’t think the team will be demoralized if we don’t win it.
The best thing is this season we will qualify for Champions league, we may (and i hope we do) win the league.
Best of all we will start to attract top quality players and can look forward to being better for a good few seasons to come
Regardless of what happens the rest of the season, there’s no reason to be negative. We are back at the top of the league with a young team with great potential for further development 🔴⚪️
The key to this article, is the comparison to last season.
We were creating negative records up and until the start of this unbelievably brilliant campaign.
In a other article, it was said that supporters were always pointing out the negatives, but not giving MA credit for his successes – until this season, there were no successes, so what’s changed?
The brilliant summer and winter signings, the consistency of the games, MA’s style of playing and our “never give up” attitude.
Just look at our record this season against the other London clubs as an example and one can see the improvements being made both on and off the field.
As Martin says, records are there to be broken and, in one incredible season, Mikel has started to set his own positive ones!!!
Long may it continue.
Well, Arteta won two trophies with Arsenal in 2020, less than one year after he got appointed. After 3,5 years he and Edu has made us tittle contenders, not many objective people would have thought that was possible 🔴⚪️
Didrik, you have often said that MA inherited many problems, yet, when it suits your view, you point to his success under those problems he inherited!!
Now I believe those “problems” are wildly exaggerated, as the fa cup win proved.
But hey, it’s all water under the bridge now and I cannot for the life of me remember ANY manager who has so changed the fortunes of a club during the summer as Mikel Arteta has done.
That’s my point and, by the way, The Arsenal do NOT see the Charity Shield (or whatever you want to call it!!) as a trophy, though of course man United DO!!
I’m quite happy to include the Shields previous managers have won as part of their legacy of trophies if you want to.
From the time I started writing comments at JA, we have had diametrically opposed perceptions of reality, and I relate to that.
