There is no doubt that Arsenal have started the season in fantastic fashion.
Great football, great performances and most importantly, great wins. Minus the blip against Manchester United, Arsenal have managed to win 6 of their first 7 games of the season – and currently sit 1st in the Premier League table.
By anyone’s standards, that’s a blistering start to the campaign.
As the old adage goes, there’s a hell of a long way left to go this season but where will we end up?
It’s a tough question to answer because we’re only 2 months into the new season, and we don’t know how we’ll do against the other Top 6 sides this season. Added to this, we also don’t know how the Winter World Cup will affect Arsenal, and indeed affect the other Top 6 sides.
We have the North London Derby this coming weekend and the big question for that game is can Arsenal learn their lessons from the Manchester United game?
It will be another tough match and while we played well at Old Trafford, and were arguably the better team, United picked us off far too easily. They had a game plan and executed it excellently, and we didn’t have the answers. Yes, I would say United were negative in their approach, especially as they were supposed to be the home side – and in the end they parked the bus and played like the away team – but that’s exactly what Tottenham will do.
Conte’s approach is to win by any means necessary, and that will include putting 11 men behind the ball and then hoping Kane, Son and Kulusevski can hurt us on the break.
It will be a difficult game that’s for sure, but I’m hoping the fantastic Emirates atmosphere will get us over the line.
But where do you think we will finish this season? Can we genuinely challenge for the title? Or should we be fighting to get ourselves back into the Champions League places?
And how will our Europa League campaign and the Winter World Cup affect our season?
