We’re getting closer and closer to the end of the Premier League season, and for Arsenal, the success of their campaign really does depend on the Europa League now. There’s still a chance they could leapfrog rivals Tottenham Hotspur and break into the top four, but realistically speaking that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.
The last few weeks have been pretty desperate for the club as they’ve been unable to make any major dent in the aforementioned battle for a Champions League spot. The rest of the sides around them have also been slipping up which has given them more opportunities than they probably deserved, but given how ‘easy’ their run-in seemed, being in this position heading into the final day just seems utterly unacceptable.
Still, we’ve all spoken about and heard the negatives many times over the course of the last few weeks, so we thought it’d be best to change things up a bit. It’s not like we want to forget about all of the things that need improving, but what we do want to do is try to look on the bright side for once.
With that being said let’s take a look at what we believe to be Arsenal’s best Premier League triumphs thus far.
Arsenal 3-1 West Ham
Kicking off the season against Manchester City and Chelsea was always going to prove to be a little bit tricky, and after losing both of those games, it was clear to see that the Gunners were in desperate need of a week. Thankfully, against a very game West Ham side, they were able to hold their nerve and register a win that set them on a fantastic unbeaten path.
Fulham 1-5 Arsenal
We know that it’s Fulham, but winning away from home like this was a rarity for Arsenal as we’ve all come to know at this stage. Thankfully, at Craven Cottage, their big names were all at the races with Lacazette, Ramsey and Aubameyang featuring on the scoresheet to continue the club’s surge up the table.
Arsenal 2-0 Everton
Heading into the second half it really did feel like this game was starting to slip away from Arsenal, but in the space of three minutes, Auba and Laca were able to give them the breathing space they needed. Everton hadn’t really hit their stride at this point of the campaign, but after beating West Ham, Cardiff and Newcastle, this was their first major test from a team that everyone knew would be in the hunt for the top eight.
