Arsenal has been scintillating in their last seven matches in all competitions, as they are yet to lose a game. Arsenal's last defeat was against Manchester City, which ended 5-0 at Etihad Stadium. Arsenal take on Watford today, as they aim to secure a top four place, before the international break.
Arsenal's manager, Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side continue their good run of form later today at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal is currently seventh in the Premier League table with 17 points and would be hoping to take all three points, so as to be above Manchester United. Here I will be outlining three things Mikel Arteta must do for his team to be above Manchester United this season.
1. Formation: Mikel Arteta's new formation has worked for him for over one month now and he will be hoping his side gets the better of the newly promoted side, Watford. Mikel Arteta's 4-2-3-1 formation worked for him against Leicester City last weekend at the King Power Stadium, where they won 2-0.
2. Playing Lacazette in the Number 10 role: Alexander Lacazette has been brilliant in that position in Arsenal's last three matches. The French international caused problems for Leicester City's midfielders last weekend, but didn't get on the score sheet.
3. Another quality Arteta must continue so as to make top four this season, is that he should continue with the way he addresses his players before any match. Mikel Arteta was an assistant to Pep Guardiola and am sure he has mastered some tactics that will help him at the London club.
Arsenal will be aiming they get a top four finish, so as to return to European football. Do you think Arsenal can finish in the top 4 this season?
Do you think Arsenal will finish above Manchester United this season?
