Liverpool has threatened a number of Arsenal records in recent seasons and their latest attempt to break another one ended last night.
Leicester City beat the Reds 1-0 in the Premier League in a hotly contested match.
In-form Mohamed Salah missed a penalty for Jurgen Klopp’s men, and the Foxes made them regret it after Ademola Lookman came off the bench to net the winner.
That was the first time Liverpool has failed to score in the league this season.
Opta’s Duncan Alexander said, on Twitter, it means Arsenal remains the only club in Premier League history to score in every league game in a season.
The Gunners achieved that feat in the 2001-02 campaign, and some fans believe it is much better than playing the entire 2003/2004 season unbeaten.
Just Arsenal Opinion
This is another record that shows Arsene Wenger is one of the best managers we ever had.
The Frenchman guided Arsenal to many different records during his time at the helm, and another manager will struggle to achieve the same success.
Mikel Arteta has done great in rebuilding our team, and if his young side continues developing well then the glory days should not be too far off.
THE JUST ARSENAL SHOW – Dan Smith has a rant over Arteta and ‘Players Welfare”
Well spotted Martin and I like the way you sidestepped the flip side of the coin… that being the records that MA has actually broken…all negative ones!!!! 🤗🤗
I very much doubt Arteta will ever break the negative record that Wenger set, as the only manager of The Arsenal whose team threw away a 3-0 lead at home.
But. MA has broken them, your assuming he won’t break any more – refresh my memory, what game are you referring to?
The home game against Anderlecht. 3-0 up at home and we ended up drawing 3-3. First time in the history of our great club that has happened.
What about being 4-0 up at half-time away to Newcastle and end up drawing 4-4. Or had you forgotten that game?
What was the final score over both legs versus Anderlecht
and wasn’t Diaby sent off (terrible decision) dubious penalty given and I hadn’t forgotten the game Phil, but it was the home game I had forgotten.
Still, neither of those games resulted in us being in the worst position in 25 years did it?
That’s one of MA’s record in the history of our great club, the first time it’s happened.
The game in Brussels has no bearing on the record Wenger set in the home game in throwing away a 3 goal lead.
As for the beginning of this season’s dismal record, it just eclipses Wenger’s in the 11/12 season.
With the squad arteta inherited at arsenal, It’s hardly his fault that those so call records were achieved. If not him, another coach would’ve had the same problem. Given the circumstances, I think he’s trying and he’s learning. I mean he could’ve been a legend with over 250 goals who happen to shit at coaching.
