Arsene Wenger is pleased that his side have responded to the Liverpool defeat in a ‘united way’.
Arsenal had a very difficult end to August, losing 4-0 to Liverpool and going through a trying final week in the transfer market.
However, September turned out to be a very good month, with five wins from six games, and the win over Brighton on Sunday has ensured a good start to October, too.
Wenger is understandably pleased with the way his side has come together and responded to the “crisis” at the start of the season.
“I knew that after the game in Liverpool everybody would write us off and I knew it just depends on us, how much we respond,” said Wenger, as reported by the Daily Mail.
“Nothing is permanent; you’re not bad in a permanent way, if you can do something about it, and you’re not good in a permanent way, if you don’t keep your urgency.
“We responded in a united way and we have put some wins together and some good performances as well.”
The good form has helped us climb the table. We now sit fifth, level on points with Chelsea and just a point behind Tottenham.
Arsenal have an opportunity to continue their good form throughout October with a number of winnable fixtures to come.
We face trips to Watford and Everton in the Premier League, welcome Norwich and Swansea to the Emirates and have a double header against Red Star Belgrade to come in the Europa League.
With games against Tottenham and Manchester City in November, it’s a chance for Arsenal to get a good run of form going and get some real momentum behind them.
