During what has been a frustrating end to another promising campaign from an Arsenal perspective, here’s a list of five of the best Premier League moments that the Gunners have enjoyed this term.
1An excellent 3-0 win and overall display v Chelsea
It’s no secret by now that, coupled with a series of unconvincing displays, Chelsea’s 3-0 away defeat against Arsenal set the ball in motion for Antonio Conte to change his formation and adapt his tactics.
They went onto win the league, whilst Wenger’s men limped to a fifth-place finish. Nice.
This was one of the Gunners’ best performances of the season and it left supporters purring with delight for the future. It’s almost as if that Arsenal had been locked away somewhere for the remainder of the campaign, waiting to burst into life at any moment.
Mesut Özil and Alexis Sánchez were ruthless in their pursuit of opportunities, the newly-formed ‘Kostafi’ partnership isolated Diego Costa effectively while Theo Walcott’s finish after just 14 minutes justified why Arsenal supporters were so excited. Effortlessly passing through Chelsea with combinations galore, meant they were too tough for the visitors to stop.
It was a joy to watch from start to finish, and such a shame that Arsenal couldn’t perform like this more often.
