Edu and Mikel Arteta have faced criticism following Arsenal’s recent performance in the Premier League. However, the team’s dominant victory over West Ham showcased their resilience and ability to bounce back.
After suffering defeats to West Ham and Fulham, as well as an FA Cup exit to Liverpool, Arsenal responded with three consecutive league wins, scoring a total of 10 goals. Their impressive form was highlighted by a 6-0 win over West Ham, with six different players contributing goals in their recent matches.
Bukayo Saka has been a standout player for Arsenal, emphasizing the team’s collective effort and adaptability. This resurgence has justified the club’s decision not to invest in a new forward, with Arsenal now trailing the top spot by only two points and firmly back in the title race.
Arsenal’s performance has silenced critics who doubted their attacking prowess, including Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville, who both questioned the team’s goal-scoring ability earlier in the season. Despite apparent defiance from Edu, Arsenal continues to be linked with Brentford star Ivan Toney, with a potential move expected in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Toney’s contract situation with Brentford adds intrigue to the transfer speculation surrounding the club.
