Arsenal endured a torrid opening to the campaign, losing their first three matches to suffer their worst start to a season in 67 years. They were rock bottom of the Premier League with Mikel Arteta under pressure, but the Spaniard has overseen a remarkable recovery at the Emirates Stadium.
Saturday’s victory over Aston Villa saw the Gunners claim a 10th Premier League victory in 13 games to consolidate fourth place and strengthen their grip on Champions League qualification. Arsenal have conceded just eight goals in that 13-game period.
Gary Neville has explained his recent comment that he didn’t “fully trust” them and said he now expects Arteta’s side to clinch fourth place despite some tricky fixtures still to come.
