Arsenal’s TOP 5 ‘panic buys’ down the years

Yossi BenayounPremier League football returns this weekend with Arsenal fans more eager than most to see their team back in action.

Arsene Wenger’s side host Hull City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, desperate for what would be only their third Premier League win of the season.

The routine 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge prior to the international break left a bitter taste in the mouth of every Arsenal fan.

Not only had Mourinho kept up his near perfect record against Wenger, but it meant Arsenal dropped nine points off the top of the table, whilst the fact the Gunners waited until the 90th minute to register a shot on target was also a major cause for concern.

Arsene Wenger has been bullish this week in suggesting his team are capable of clawing back the deficit at the top of the table once players return from injury and the summer signings begin to settle.

The Arsenal boss was busier in the transfer market than usual this summer, although he was unable to please frustrated supporters with all his signings – given his previous track record with regards to ‘panic signings’.

Here, we have identified the top five of Wenger’s reign.
