Despite missing out on Premier League glory once again, we have enjoyed our best second half of the season in well over a decade. The fact that our fantastic winning run is not going to be rewarded by Premier League or Champions League success makes it harder to appreciate, but this table really puts our 2015 achievements into perspective.
We are known as a team who finishes strongly, and while that may not necessarily always have been true, we have a habit of doing what is necessary to get us over the line.
More often than not we have enjoyed better second halves of the season, but this year we have really outdone ourselves.
Our winning run finally came to an end when we drew with new Premier League champions Chelsea, but before that we were brushing aside all opposition.
The table below shows just how superb we’ve been, with a points per game average of 2.42 in the second half of the season. Even the Invincibles of the 2003/04 season weren’t able to match that number, with an average of 2.36 points per game managed by the legendary squad.
- Arsenal reportedly weighing up prospect of re-signing in-form goalscorer
- Recently departed Arsenal star reveals he’s living his ‘dream’ at new club
- Mesut Ozil remains defiant over future but slams Arsenal for lack of loyalty
If we can carry this form into the next season, then we will surely be more than capable of challenging for the title.
