After a lot of doubts were raised about the experience of the former Arsenal midfielder when it comes to coaching world-class players, the 38-year-old has been able to create a strong impression. He has clearly learned a lot from his time under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. For several years, Arsenal were criticised as a team who could not perform in away matches against the top six.


Such a criticism has come to an end with Arsenal registering a 1-0 win over Manchester United last weekend. This was the first away win against a top six outfit by Arsenal in the last five years. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the penalty that provided a victory for the gunners. Wright says that Arsenal have done plenty of good business during the summer and it is again a sign of maturity from Arteta. The former Arsenal forward expects the positivity to continue going forward. Even after a run of four victories from the opening seven matches, Arsenal find themselves in the ninth place of the table. This is largely down to a string of good performances from teams like Leicester, Southampton, Wolves, and Aston Villa.
