We’re about to enter into the final international break of the year and while that may not be the best news in the world for fans who would prefer to watch the domestic game in all its beauty, we’d say Arsenal fans are ready for a bit of a rest.
The last six games have been incredibly tasking for the Gunners and while we did see a few highs, there were certainly some lows to go alongside them.
Rapid Wien 1-2 Arsenal
Overcoming adversity is so often the name of the game in this sport and while this wasn’t the definitive win that fans wanted to see to kickstart Arsenal’s Europa League journey this season, it still allowed them to put three vital points on the board. Rapid Wien put on a great show but the Gunners dug deep to secure a win that felt well deserved.
Arsenal 0-1 Leicester
As Leicester City continue to impress in the Premier League, we’re left to wonder whether or not this was such a bad result after all. Of course, losing at the Emirates is never a good thing, but nothing seemed to go the home side’s way in what many would consider to be a pretty poor day at the office.
Arsenal 3-0 Dundalk
There were a few points in this game whereby Arsenal fans could be forgiven for feeling a little bit nervous but when push came to shove, the better side came out on top with three goals in a matter of minutes. It was really important for them to get the clean sheet and announce to the world that they’re still a team to be feared – in some respects, at least.
Manchester United 0-1 Arsenal
Winning at Old Trafford is the definition of a novelty and on this day, they finally got the job done. Arsenal probably should’ve won by a bigger scoreline but the three points are all that really matter when you really think about it, and once again, Arsenal are beating the big names under Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal 4-1 Molde
Molde seemed to have Arsenal’s number at one stage during this one but thanks to a 4-1 scoreline, nobody will remember that in the weeks and months to come. It may have flattered the hosts ever so slightly, but again, this helped to build momentum in the Europa – although it didn’t do a whole lot for their Premier League ambitions.
Arsenal 0-3 Aston Villa
Many will question how this result even happened and they’re right to do so. Aston Villa were simply the better team and that beat Arsenal from pillar to post at the Emirates, exposing some of the big problems they still have within their squad. In order to move forward, these issues have to be addressed.
How do you feel about the club’s last six results?
