Arteta betters Arsene Wenger’s win tally after Watford win

Mikel Arteta has bettered Arsene Wenger’s win record after 100 games as the manager of Arsenal.

When Arsenal made the rookie Spaniard their manager in 2019, several fans and pundits thought they were making a wrong decision.

The former Man City assistant manager also struggled to get the team performing to a high standard after a fine start to his managerial reign, where he won the FA Cup and the Community Shield.

The Gunners continued to support the Spaniard and has splashed the cash on the likes of Thomas Partey, Martin Odegaard and Ben White in the last two summer transfer windows.

Arteta is beginning to show why he is the right man for the job and Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Watford was his 100th game in charge of the club.

The Sun reports the 39-year-old has 54 wins in those games and it is better than the record of Wenger after 100 games.

The Frenchman had just 51 wins in his opening 100 games for the Gunners.

Arteta looks set to remain at the helm at Arsenal for a very long time and that means he may yet break more Wenger records, hopefully, including the number of trophies the Frenchman won at the club.

    Well done Arteta but wenger won the league in his first 100 games and had 8 less defeats. Lets have the whole picture please, not just one that tries to paint a different one. Arteta deserves praise but lets not compare him to Wenger, thats disrespectful at the moment.

    1. Pires says:

      Spot on…Arteta is showing good vision and wise recruitement but comparing him to Wenger is laughable…..

  2. Simon says:

    The comparison is illogical. Just like comparing moyes to fergusson

    nonsensical article, only using certain facts to force a biased agenda.

    1. Admin Pat says:

      What agenda?
      So Arteta has won 54 of his first 100 games, and Wenger won 51 of his first 100 games.
      That is a fact that you can check yourself.
      Where is this “biased agenda” hidden in these FACTS?

    It’s an interesting and surprising fact but I agree with comments above. No comparisons needed.
    Well done to Arteta and the team for the recent run. I’ve never been a true a believer in the process. But I’m getting there now.

    More importantly,without having set the heather alight in terms of playing attractive football, we are now becoming a side which is difficult to score against and are no longer a soft touch.We have a long way to go, with more quality needed in midfield and up front, but progress is being made as suggested by our League position.

    It is interesting because Wenger inherited a stronger squad and built on top of it, whereas MA has had to clear out a lot of players who shouldn’t have been there imo. I don’t think we’ve played well in the majority of those 100 games but it’s still a decent achievement.
    I’d be more dismissive if i didn’t see us getting better in recent matches, but we seem mentally tougher recently. Upward trajectory

      The thing is Wengers games were in the CL as well not the easier EL, We are not given the full facts about competition and cup games either. Futile stat really, the main stat will be end of season.
