It seems that Arsene Wenger knows exactly what he is doing at the minute. His Arsenal side are currently top of the table in both the Premier League and Champions League – and the so-called ‘group of death’ to boot.
Many people thought that Arsenal had a shot at a trophy this season – the Europa League – which they would be competing for after failing to get out of their rather tricky Champions League group.
Now it seems that instead they are gunning down all in their path and leaving other sides trailing in their wake.
Many people joked that it would take a magician to get Arsenal back to the top, but on deadline day they managed to snare one in the form of Real Madrid’s Mesut Ozil.
That is no exaggeration and after seeing their side beat a much-fancied Napoli side this week with ease, Gunners fans are more hopeful than they have been in a long time.
The summer may have turned the club into a laughing stock after their £40 million and £1 bid for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, but they are having the last laugh right now in so many ways.
Looking odds on favourite to qualify at the top of their Champions League group after two wins, not to mention flying domestically, Wenger has every right to look as smug as he does in the picture in front of us!
