Having been extremely convincing in large parts against Stoke City at home yesterday afternoon despite Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud not gobbling up all of the chances that were presented to them, our resident Arsenal fans are largely happy given they are now third in the Premier League table.
In many ways, yesterday’s game at Emirates Stadium told you everything you needed to know about Arsenal’s current state with their playmakers such as Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey providing opportunities yet again, only for the likes of Walcott and Giroud to miss their fair share before they scored them.
If Arsene Wenger did manage to find value in the market while attaining a new top class forward this summer, many Arsenal fans would be laughing because they always create chances and would undoubtedly be closer to Manchester City at the top of the table but given Chelsea’s dire start to the campaign, they are relatively content where they are at the moment.
Having now achieved their first win at Emirates Stadium coupled with hard fought victories away at Crystal Palace and Newcastle United, the Gunners sit on 10 points, five adrift of leaders Manchester City while they face a trip across London to face wounded animal and fierce rivals Chelsea next Saturday lunchtime.
While the Blues have had the better of the fixture more recently, Arsenal and Arsene Wenger managed to inflict their first ever defeat on a Jose Mourinho-led Chelsea team in the FA Community Shield so they will be full of belief this time around.
With fans still hanging around in the tavern following today’s Super Sunday action, they’re taking a moment to list who they believe to be Arsenal’s five most underrated players right now.
