Most Arsenal fans are happy with the way that things are at the club right now. They have seen the team grow and develop in the days that have gone by under manager Mikel Arteta. And things are looking good as ever, with most people affiliated with the North London giants happy with the progress. That is despite the fact that the team failed to win the League last year.
Despite that, there are a lot of positives for the fans to see already. The Arsenal team looks like a family and the atmosphere around the club is great too. The players are playing together in tandem and the focus of this team is great. Also, there is a fighting spirit amongst the individual stars too. And there are not bad egos to disrupt the flow.
All that being said, numbers don’t like. And there is no doubt that Arsenal has one of the best defences in the League at present. This has surely delighted the Arsenal fans too.
The Numbers That Have Really Impressed Arsenal Fans Enough To Back Mikel Arteta!!
Numbers are factual. They can’t be manipulated, as opinions may be. And so, they speak louder than any words that any Pundit or Arsenal fans may share. So, we have the numbers to show defensively, which are one of the main reasons why the fanbase is still fully backing the manager.
Best defences so far this season (least xG conceded):
🥇 Man City – 7.62(xG)
🥈 Arsenal – 8.08(xG)
🥉 Newcastle – 11.12(xG)

Prior to the Newcastle game, these were the numbers put out by the xG Philosophy, which is a renowned account on Twitter for such stats. And the Arsenal fans loved what they had seen. This is one of the main reasons why the club’s faithful trust Mikel. Because, good attacks win you games, but good defences win you titles!! And Arsenal wants titles!!
Can The Gunners Win A Major Title This Season!?
It is always the aim of a big club like Arsenal to win more and more titles. Manager Mikel Arteta took this job for the same reason. And he is trying his best to push the team over the line and win some major silverware.
Arsenal fans want the team to go out there, play some good football and win titles. For that purpose, they want Mikel Arteta to get the best signings in. And then, they want results to go in their favour, with the referees not screwing the team over consistently and VAR doing its job.
Unfortunately, these are a lot of factors. And VAR was one of the reasons that Arsenal did not win the League last season. If things need to change and improve now, then, not just the performances, but luck has to play its part too.
So, this season has brought out a lot of hopes and expectations from the fans, after such a great previous campaign. It will be interesting to see how things develop now. So far, so good!! Let’s wait and watch!!
