Because nobody else looks invincible this season
With Manchester City currently leading the pack at the top of the Premier League table by two points on a tally of 18 compared to Arsenal and Manchester United’s haul of 16, it is quite clear that there is no runaway leader like Chelsea last term.
Cast your mind back to the earlier weeks of the season and many claimed City were going to walk it in the style Chellsea did last term but fast forward to eight games gone and the top of the table is far, far tighter and more competitive.
With every side having lost a game now, while this of course keeps Arsenal’s Invincibles record in tact, it also gives Gooners incredible hope that they can stick in there while hoping for extra reinforcements in the January transfer window to get them over the line.
Arsenal suffered costly early defeats last term which despite their second half of the season renaissance, cost them in the end so with Wenger’s men producing a good points tally so far and City having threw away points to the likes of West Ham United at home, no single team has looked incredibly convincing for the duration so far and this gives Arsenal fans reason to believe.
