Back in October 2011, Arsenal trailed 2-1 at Stamford Bridge at half-time. The Gunners came back to win 5-3, a huge win with a Robin van Persie hat-trick.

Amazingly, until Sunday, that was the last time Arsène Wenger’s side had trailed a Premier League game at the break and still went on to win.

After 45 minutes at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, Jamie Vardy’s penalty was still the only strike of the match. Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck came off the bench to turn the game on its head and secure a vital three points, but it was well overdue we pulled off such a comeback.

Since October 2011, we have trailed after 45 minutes in 30 Premier League matches and failed to win once, drawing 11 and losing 19. We constantly hear questions about the mentality of the side, and we have struggled to break teams down recently, but this is a pretty appalling revelation.

A win like Sunday’s was a long time coming, and simply couldn’t have come at a better time. Maybe Arsenal have struggled mentally, but that sort of block can’t be there anymore. Maybe you can even question Arsène Wenger’s half-time team talks, but the boss got everything right in the second half on Sunday.

Now is certainly the time to turn everything around, and what better way to end such a run than with a win against the team top of the Premier League?
