With 11 wins out of a possible 13, Arsenal leads the Premier League standings and has held that position for most of the 2022–23 campaign. The team also finished first in its Europa League group, skipping the knockout stage and moving directly into the round of 16.
In his first two seasons, Wenger had consecutive eighth-place finishes and a disastrous final month in which Arsenal finished fifth after being edged out of the final Champions League position by north London rivals Spurs.
However, Arteta was given time to integrate his ideas and strategies into the team. As a result, Arsenal is currently playing their best football in the past ten years. Notable additions from Manchester City include Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Granit Xhaka’s career in north London appeared to be finished after an incident against Crystal Palace when he was substituted in one of Unai Emery’s final games as manager, but this season he has emerged as a key member of the Arsenal squad.
The average age of Arteta’s team is 24.43 years, and he has acknowledged that in order to challenge his players, he first needed to implement some soft methods. It appears that he has received the desired response, which has made him proud.
He claims that in order for the team to succeed moving forward, he must challenge them to perform to the best of their abilities.
He told Sky Sports that during this time, they wanted someone to protect them, offer them a sense of security, and provide them with something to hang onto.
They now require a challenger who will push them to the next level and help them reach their full potential.
“I am happy. especially with regard to one thing. Previously, our club was struggling, but today, I believe we can be proud of our club.
