It’s been a fascinating few months for Arsenal Football Club, both for positive and negative reasons. Along the way they’ve bee able to pull off some pretty exciting results, but at the same time, they’ve had a few baffling ones that have left many wondering what kind of position the club is in heading into the future.
The FA Cup final is still ahead of us, but for now, let’s take a look at the last six games of the Gunners’ competitive campaign.
Arsenal 3-2 Watford
While they may have picked up a win heading into the final, it’s safe to say that Arsenal couldn’t quite keep up with Watford’s pace during their comeback. They may have just been letting their guard down, but it doesn’t bode well for Saturday either way.
Aston Villa 1-0 Arsenal
How can you beat the two best teams in the country and then lose to one of the Premier League’s worst? Such is the crazy nature of the English game. Villa were on point and did well throughout, but it’s another worrying sign.
Arsenal 2-0 Manchester City
City just couldn’t get going in their FA Cup semi-final against the Gunners, whereas Mikel Arteta’s men were on fire from the word go. It was the sort of game that makes us wonder why Arsenal can’t put on a performance like this more often.
Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool
The Reds haven’t been at the races since they won the Premier League title, but either way, Arsenal had to take advantage of an opening – and they did just that. They looked better than they have done in a long time and that says a lot given how little time Arteta has had there.
Tottenham 2-1 Arsenal
This is the definition of one to forget as the Gunners allowed a North London derby win to slip through their fingers. It was classic Arsenal, in many ways, and they’ll know that they need to do much better next season if they finally want to celebrate St Totteringham’s Day once again.
Arsenal 1-1 Leicester
This was another unfortunate result given how well Arsenal performed in the first half, but again, blaming VAR is going to get you absolutely nowhere. They should’ve put the game out of sight in the first half, and because they were unable to do so, the Foxes crept back into it.
What’s the biggest lesson we can take from Arsenal’s last six games?
