Arsenal’s recent winning run has made us the in-form team in England and pushed us closer to league leaders Chelsea, slightly reigniting a title race which previously seemed beyond us.
Our form has been comparable to the top clubs in Europe this calendar year and in terms of points gained on average, the stats (via Opta) are pleasantly surprising.
The leading clubs in the top devisions are inevitably in the top five lists, but our presence and position in the list could be frustrating to many, as well as exciting.
An inconsistent start to the season has effectively killed off our chances of clinching our first league title since 2004.
