Arsenal attack finally flourishing in Premier League

Despite several blips early on in the current Premier League campaign, Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal are seemingly back on track after recovering in recent weeks with some impressive results.

This has been mainly thanks to the clinical form of their attacking options such as Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Alexandre Lacazette among many others. All of these forward threats managed to find the target in the impressive 5-0 league victory over Yorkshire outfit Huddersfield Town.

The Gunners’ demolition of their last opponents in the top flight secured them their 12th straight league victory, proving they have bounced back from their previously stuttering performances across all fronts.

Wenger will be especially pleased to see his attacking players flowing on all levels with plenty of goals being fired in domestically, with help coming from members of his ranks. Chilean forward Sanchez was previously linked with a departure from the Emirates but has now rediscovered his focus to help his current employers.

Meanwhile, France international hitman Giroud was another tipped to leave London but his commitment to the side has been rewarded with plenty of game time. In turn, he has provided another attacking spark for the Gunners when leading the line or being introduced as a substitute during the course of the season so far.

Giroud’s compatriot Lacazette has found his feet quickly in the capital, too, and was on hand to open the scoring in that rampant success over the Terriers with an admirable strike. The former Lyon frontman now has seven goals in all competitions this current campaign, signalling a swift rise to prominence in London.

Arsenal are still some way off the pace in terms of rivalling league leaders Manchester City for title supremacy, while Manchester United have been pushing their neighbours all the way in second position as well.

Although, the Gunners have been fighting back themselves are now seen as the 66/1 outsiders in the football betting to bounce back further and claim a historic Premier League title triumph this term. Such success would see the capital club claim their first league crown since their famous Invincibles reigned supreme back in 2004.

Despite his future being under the spotlight in his current surroundings, Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil is another attacker who has redeemed himself in recent weeks as well. The highly controversial attacking midfielder was linked with a potential switch to bitter rivals Manchester United, a move which would have made those connected with Arsenal furious.

But the German has since squashed such rumours and done his talking on the pitch, including in that aforementioned win over Huddersfield Town, in which he shone and got on the scoresheet himself. Could this be the start of a season charge towards the Premier League title for Wenger’s rejuvenated squad?

It’s a tough task ahead in order to achieve such a feat but they have shown better form and a boost in confidence in recent outings. The January transfer window may also be a decisive factor in Arsenal’s remaining campaign as Wenger looks to oversee success at the Emirates.
