Premier League

Could Arsenal still make the top four this season?

Arsenal began their 2021/22 season in a disappointing way, but seem to have turned the tide. The Premier League giants have poured oil on their troubled waters as their rejuvenated form after a poor showing has put smiles on their fans' faces, and thus, brought new hope for the season ahead.

The Emirates side have endured a struggling start to the campaign as things weren't going their way. They did everything to try to catch a break and hoped to break the duck and get the ball rolling, but to no avail. But, the needed luck started against the Canaries.

Arsenal's first three games of the season ended in losses. Their first loss was against the newly promoted Brentford in the season opener. Then came a 2-0 home defeat to Chelsea and a 5-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City. With three back-to-back losses in three games, with nine goals conceded and zero goals scored, all hope was lost before the season began.

However, Arsenal have since built on their back-to-back victories in the Premier League against Norwich, Burnley and Tottenham. At first, the win wasn't pretty, nor were the performances, but they did win. Their game in the north London derby was an exciting game and a great display from the Emirates side to sweep Tottenham aside. Their confidence seems to have returned and can only grow overtime.

Currently, the Gunners sit in 9th position on the table after seven rounds, having won three of their last four games, with the last ending in a 0-0 draw. Also, Arsenal have scored five goals and conceded just one goal as well as keeping three clean sheets.

In sum, Arteta's men are really justifying their coach's trust in them and are proving to have what it takes to compete with the Premier League elite. What remains to be seen, however, is if the London-based club can make the top four at the end of the season.
