Arsenal "Gunners" started the season in Premier League, in the worst possible way, losing 3 opening matches. But the last 3 victories in the championship, not only have raised the hope of the Londoners' fans, but at the same time it seems that they have changed the fate of coach Arteta.
He was a former Arsenal defender, Gael Clichy, who before the 3-1 victory of the "gunners" against Tottenham, gave a very controversial opinion. According to Clichy, Arteta has every chance of being the second Wenger at Arsenal. The former defender's opinion seemed somewhat exaggerated before the match, but Arsenal's fantastic performance is undoubtedly the merit of coach Arteta. Gael Clichy told BBC Radio 5:
"Art has so much knowledge, he has had the luxury learn from Pep Guardiola. I really think in the long run, he could be the next Arsene Wenger of the club. "He is very young and I think if he is given time, he will fill the minds of all the critics."
After the match, it was Graeme Souness, the Liverpool legend, who also commented on the meeting:
"Spurs were shocking in the first half, while Arsenal were fantastic. For spurs? Really bad. "I was surprised by how badly they were playing."
Arsenal striker, Smith Rowe, who found the net in front of Tottenham, told the media:
"This is probably the most beautiful day of my life. "My family was here today, it's a special feeling."
The latest victory puts Arsenal ahead of Tottenham in the standings, but the "gunners" are still in 10th place, far away from rivals such as Liverpool, Manchester City or Chelsea. October reserves interesting confrontations for Arteta's trustees, and the Spaniard will have the chance to prove whether or not Arsenal under his leadership is on the right track.
