Arsene Wenger proves he's still one of the best

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has silenced the critics once again after his side were victorious over Marseille in the Champions League.

Arsenal have now stretched their victory streak to six games now, mainly thanks to new signing Mesut Ozil, a rejuvenated Aaron Ramsey and the form of a now confident striker Olivier Giroud.

Against Marseille, Theo Walcott gave Arsenal the lead on 64 minutes with a rasping volley before Ramsey drove the ball into the net which turned out to be the winner on 84 minutes.

Arsenal sit in 2nd place in the Premier League after four games and now after fully qualifying for the Champions League they top Group F.

The sudden rise in form came about after fans criticised both Wenger and Gunners' shareholder Ivan Gazidis for their lack of ambition in the transfer market.

The 3-1 home defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season provoked the media to describe the club as in a 'crisis', but Wenger was quick to play it down.

Speaking in August, Wenger stated: "There's nothing to explain. First of all, you don't know what we have done, you don't know if we did bid and you have come to a conclusion without knowing everything that has happened."

The signing of Ozil for a club record £42.5 million has shown that Wenger and the board of directors are challenging the top teams in the league and in Europe.

And he has been an instant hit with key passes and great general play in his first two games for the club.

Following the win at Marseille, Wenger discussed his current team policy: "We just focus on the next game and it is good and shows that defence we are more stable and serene, and with our attacking quality that why we are able to win the games."

The Gunners will bid to continue their impressive form - form that is worthy of the typical 'boring, boring Arsenal'...
