The Premier League’s record goal scorer, Alan Shearer has praised Arsenal’s mentality for how they overcame their loss against Manchester City with seven consecutive wins in the Premier League.
The Gunners looked to be in trouble after failing to win three games in a row against Everton, Brentford and Manchester City with people expecting Arsenal to fade away in the title race. However, The Gunners had other plans.
After the 3-1 loss against City at home, Arsenal have won their next seven league games, scoring 23 goals in the process. It’s the first time Arsenal have won seven consecutive games in the Premier League under Mikel Arteta’s reign as manager & what a time to do it.
The pressure is on and Arsenal have put together a set of results that only champions would be able to achieve.
After their comfortable win against Leeds on Saturday, Alan Shearer praised Arsenal on BBC Match Of The Day, saying:
“Arsenal are looking good. I was at that game when they played Man City & they were beaten at home. Although I thought it is big test for them here, they are passing it with flying colours at the minute.”
He also praised the Gunners mentality after some of their most important players were absent for the Leeds game, with the likes of William Saliba and Bukayo Saka not starting the match.
Shearer went on to speak about the title race and how he expects it to go down to the wire. He said…
“Man City have got the bigger squad. We keep saying if Arsenal have absentees, they will fall away. Well Saka hasn’t play today, Saliba hasn’t play today & they keep asking those questions and keep getting through those games and winning.
It’s going to be an exciting run-in.”
Arsenal’s next game is at Anfield which is a ground the Gunners haven’t won at in over 10 years. They’ve broken all sorts of records so far this season, could they break another one this weekend?
