Complacent Gunners get away with it!

Arsenal 3-2 Swansea

Arsenal continued their recent fine run of results by recording another victory on Saturday, against Swansea City.

It was a somewhat mixed performance as at times the Gunners were at their best while at others their sloppiness cost them dear and they could have ended up dropping points in a game that was theirs for the taking. Much has been made of the improvements that are evident throughout the side this season, but Arsenal’s ability to needlessly press the self-destruct button remains present and must be a real cause of concern for Arsene Wenger.

Last second Gunners

Burnley 0-1 Arsenal

Arsenal left it very very late on Sunday evening to secure a vital three points away to Burnley with the last kick of the game.
The Gunners came into this game in a rich vein of form having overwhelmed both Chelsea and Basel with a high intensity game of strength, power and speed. However consistency has been Arsenal’s main issue in the years since the famous Invincbles season and that same issue reared its head again as the Gunners produced a performance far below those of the previous week.

Arsenal built on their excellent performance against Chelsea on Saturday with another brilliant display of attacking fluidity and intent against Basel in the Champions League.
To produce yet another dominant display so soon after the game against Chelsea was crucial for the development of this side.

Arsenal produced quite possibly their best performance of the season so far as they defeated 10 man Hull City with ease.
The Gunners attacking play was at its free flowing best as utilising Alexis Sanchez as the lone striker finally paid off.

Lucky Gunners steal point

PSG 1-1 Arsenal

In keeping with the start to their season so far, Arsenal yet again produced a lacklustre display but once again got away with it, this time against PSG in the opening game of their Champions League campaign.
In each of the last two seasons the Gunners had suffered opening game defeats and going up against the most difficult side in the group, away from home, it would have been reasonable to presume that Arsene Wenger would elect for a more pragmatic approach than his usual attacking philosophy.

Last gasp Gunners

Arsenal 2-1 Southampton

Arsenal secured a vital three points on Saturday thanks to a last minute penalty from Santi Cazorla which should not be used in any way shape or form to disguise an otherwise average performance.
Arsene Wenger decided to deviate from his normal approach to introducing new signings to the Premier League, by starting both his new additions, Mustafi and Peres. Unfortunately both struggled to come to terms with the pace and ferocity of the Premier League and as a result produced fairly average performances in keeping with that of the whole team.
