Arsenal have started the season well as they have won three of their first four matches and their former boss Arsene Wenger has commented on how he expects them to perform in this 2020/21 campaign. Arsene Wenger has also provided a little bit of advice to the current Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal appointed Mikel Arteta as their new manager in December last year and even though he has only been able to lead the gunners to an 8th place finish in the Premier League but he however managed to lead the North London club to a record 14th FA Cup trophy and so everyone is now curious to know how he will do in his first full season.
The gunners backed Mikel Arteta in the summer transfer window as they brought in four new players including a whooping acquisition of Thomas Partey who had a release clause of £45million at Atletico Madrid. Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has advised Mikel Arteta to continue to have a grip on his team and he has also boldly claimed that he feels that the gunners will get a Premier League top four finish or more this season as they have bought well in this summer transfer window.
“To continue to have a grip on the team, as he has at the moment. And to go to the end of his beliefs. I think there is a good team spirit and they have a good chance to do well.” Arsene Wenger told The Guardian.
“I believe it will not be very difficult to improve on the number of points they got last season. But I’m convinced Arsenal can be in the top four, if not more. Why not more? They can be the surprise package for me this year: they bought well, they strengthened the defence well.”
“And they kept the players who were already there. In my last year I bought [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, they kept him. They have every ingredient and no real weakness.”
