There’s no denying the fact that Arsenal have surprised most people with a bright start to the 2018/19 Premier League season. Not many expected a winning streak such as we’re witnessing at the moment, especially after the two opening defeats. But here they are, two points off the top of the table after eight rounds, defying scepticism to the hilt.
However, sceptics aren’t likely to go away just like that, not without having a good go at dampening the spirits of anybody positively excited.
A very good example of this battle of views are contrasting opinions of two of Sky Sports’ regular contributors, Nick Wright and Paul Merson.
