Arsenal are well placed to end a 12-year wait for the Premier League by going all the way this season.
Arsene Wenger’s side have won ten of their opening 15 league games, and have suffered just the one defeat – at home to Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season.
Since then, they have beaten Chelsea and drawn with Tottenham and Manchester United in what was a 19-match unbeaten run in all competitions, yet it came to a disappointing end when they lost 2-0 at home to Southampton in the League Cup two weeks ago.
Nonetheless, Arsenal have been excellent this season and for the first time in five years won their Champions League group by just pipping French champions Paris Saint-Germain to the Group A top spot.
Their reward for winning the group is a last 16 tie against Bayern Munich, a team that have knocked the Gunners out of the competition at the same stage in two of the last four years.
Regardless, their league form has been excellent, and another victory at the weekend over Stoke temporarily sent them top of the pile, albeit Chelsea regained top spot after beating West Brom on Saturday.
In what has been a fine first four months of the campaign, which has seen Arsenal lose just two of their 24 games, we thought we’d review the Gunners’ season thus far…
