Arsenal 4-2 Tottenham
A magical derby day for Arsenal who were able to overcome losing their lead, overcome the physicality of their rivals, and secure a really important win in the race for the top four. They just seemed to be firing on all cylinders during this game, and it’s hard not to think of this as one of the primary highlights of their entire campaign.
Arsenal 2-0 Chelsea
Nobody really knew what to expect from this one courtesy of Chelsea’s inconsistency, but in the end, Arsenal took the fate of this game out of their hands. They were ruthless from the first minute until the very last, putting in the kind of shift that is enough to get your season back on track. They were coming off the back of a loss to West Ham, and very few folks expected them to run through the Blues like this.
Arsenal 5-1 Bournemouth
Bournemouth aren’t the world beaters that some fans would have you believe, but even so, very few teams are able to do this to them. Mesut Ozil had one of his best performances of the season, Auba and Laca got on the scoresheet again and even the heavily criticised Mkhitaryan was able to bag a goal. This, in short, was exactly the kind of performance they required heading into the North London derby.
Arsenal 2-0 Manchester United
Ole was at the wheel and United were on a roll, but Arsenal brought all that to a screeching stop. Xhaka scored early on and Aubameyang doubled the home side’s advantage from the penalty spot, and in response, the Red Devils just didn’t really have anything for them. It was a professional showing, and that’s the biggest compliment you can really give them here.
Watford 0-1 Arsenal
A nervy 1-0 away from home against 10 men doesn’t exactly seem like a triumph, but on any other given day, Arsenal would’ve allowed an away game like this to slip through their fingers. There’s a reason why there are only two away wins on this list, and it’s because they’re just so rare. The Gunners had to hold on against a Watford side who had just booked their place in the FA Cup final and were beaming with confidence. Sure, they lost Troy Deeney to the red card, but it was still a big three points at the time.
