Arsenal’s 3-2 win against Liverpool. It returned them to the top of the Premier League. They demonstrated that Mikel Arteta’s team has added backbone. Their self-belief added to their exciting play. It made them championship challengers for the first time.
Arsenal has been one of the Premier League’s most thrilling teams. They have also been known for their mental fragility. They tend to break down against great opponents.
Not any longer. They came back twice to win. This happened against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. They pushed Manchester City in last season’s title fight.
It was Arsenal’s second victory over Liverpool in the past seven years. The performance proved the team’s increased commitment.
They have either fallen behind or surrendered. It happened in an equaliser for the fourth straight league home game. But they still won. They defeated Fulham, Aston Villa, and north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. This is before their latest defeat.
Arsenal develops young players. This is since Arsene Wenger took over as manager in 1996. Their failure after 2004 was because of a lack of seasoned players.
But Arteta’s team is distinguished by its youth. On Sunday (Oct. 9), the average age of their starting lineup was 24. The goal scorers are Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka, both 21.
Martinelli made his debut in 2019, while Saka has been a starter since the start of the 2019-20 season.
The winger missed England’s final chance in the Euro 2020 final penalty shootout. But went up to score the game-winning penalty against Liverpool.
Supportive Fans Contribute To Success
Fans’ enthusiasm contributed to Arsenal’s success this season. It has transformed their stadium into an unusual haven. All six games were successful there this season in all competitions.
