North Londoners Arsenal look like they are driving for a top four finish this season. Albeit it is to early to draw up conclusions, the Gunners have succeeded in killing off doubts about how far they can chase a high finish this season, laying out amazing showoffs on the field of play.
The centre berth of the squad has seen a complete refurbishment, and that has translated into the balance on the field of play.
Their attacking incision has been met with some flaws–the Gunners inability to create chances in tightly closed areas–as was seen in their last weekend clash against Wolves at home.
Unai Emery’s men trailed by 1-nil, and not until a curler from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, few inches away from the goal area on the left side of the pitch, rattled the inside corner of the net, to end the game in a stalemate.
Beefing up the squad in January, would rack up more achievements for Emery, under his belt.
Barcelona youngster Ousmane Dembele may have fallen out with the Catalans after reportedly biting the hands of the outfit.
Reports peddled around by Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claim the Gunners want the 21-year-old, and Arsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat will oversee the transfer. Mislintat brought over the youngster to German outfit Borussia Dortmund during his stretch at the club, and the duo’s relationship remains healthy.
