Ian Wright says Arsenal have put an end to all discussions referring to their record against fellow participants of the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’. Also, Mikel Arteta assumes they have entered to a “different era”.
The Gunners have witnessed that all their efforts were underscored for long time. Regarding their meeting with
Manchester United at Old Trafford
on Sunday, the north London were unable to have eye catching achievement against another English top-flight.
That run was finally snapped at the 29th time of asking, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second-half penalty securing a narrow 1-0 win.
Arsenal have shown themselves differently at Emirates Stadium, transferring their club to a better position in 2020-21.
“It’s a massive win for Arsenal,” Gunners great Wright told Premier League Productions after seeing United downed in their own backyard. “The thing is that since Mikel has been there, there has been progress.
“He has got the players he’s got to work with and it’s changed in terms of defensively, intensity, the culture and what he’s trying to do.”
“We saw as well with some of the players – Gabriel, on a booking in the first half and the way he played was brilliant, [Thomas] Partey as well. He’s slowly going to integrate the players he wants to play the system he wants to play.”
