Arsenal’s momentum is scary.
In the 21st round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season against Manchester United held at Emirates Stadium in London, England on the 23rd (Korean time), Arsenal won 3-2 with Eddie Nketia’s winning goal in extra time in the second half. Arsenal reached 50 points and maintained a five-point gap with second-placed Man City, who had played one more game.
After the resignation of Arsene Wenger, Arsenal had a golden opportunity. Grabbing not only the results but also the content, they are getting closer and closer to winning the championship in 19 years. Oleksandr Zinchenko said, “When I said in the locker room that we should think about winning, some people laughed. But now no one is laughing.”
Arsenal is on the rise, the numbers speak for themselves. Now that Arsenal has played 19 games, the number of points added is 50. This is 5 points higher than the 45 points Arsenal scored in 19 games during the famous undefeated championship in the 2003-2004 season. Based on 19 games, it is the fifth highest score in EPL history. 1st place is Manchester City in the 2017-2018 season and Liverpool in the 2019-2020 season. The two teams earned 55 points from 19 matches. They only drew 1 match and won 18 matches. 안전놀이터
Third place was Chelsea with 52 points in the 2005-2006 season, and fourth place was Liverpool with 51 points in the 2018-2019 season. All of them won the league title except for Liverpool in the 2018-2019 season, which finished second behind Man City. Arsenal is also getting closer.
But Gary Neville thought differently. Neville, who reacted negatively to Arsenal’s continued run, still did not change his mind. He told Sky Sports on the 23rd, “I still don’t think Arsenal will win the league. I think Man City, which has a special power, will win.” He added: “If Arsenal lose a game or two after that, Manchester City will go after them. That will make it difficult for Arsenal.” However, he acknowledged that Arsenal only had a chance this season. “It’s a chance for Arsenal to win it. When I said they could win it, to be honest, I didn’t think they would go anywhere near it. I want Arsenal fans to know I didn’t mean anything negative,” said Neville.
