Unai Emery has done more than a commendable job in his first season as the new Arsenal boss. Currently above Manchester United and Chelsea, they look most likely to finish in top four in the English Premier League this season. The Gunners could overtake Tottenham in third place should they win tonight's match against Everton.
Who would have thought this would be what the table would like back at the start of the season. The signings he made were spot on. Four players were brought in and all of them have become integral parts of the squad.
Lucas Torreira is like a pint-sized warrior. He has never been scared to get physical with opposing players and goes into every tackle almost knowing that he will come out of it with the ball. His first goal for the club against Spurs has already made him a fan favourite and the celebration showing just how much it meant to him.
Bernd Leno has now become the team's first choice ahead of Premier League royalty Petr Cech. The German keeper is god on the ball with his feet and he has enabled Emery to inculcate his philosophy and brand of football on this side.
Sokratis has been an absolute rock in Arsenal's defence since his arrival. As good as Koscielny has been over the years, his body is just not able to take it anymore with far more frequent injuries has left a massive hole in the defence. Sokratis has taken over the mantle of being the leader in the backline and he has been almost faultless this season.
Matteo Guendouzi has often been named in the starting eleven and this goes to show how superb he has been. Picking him up from the French Second division meant Emery really knew what he wanted and boy has he delivered. The 19-year-old has been great whenever he is on the field and is definitely one for the future.
That being said Arsenal still do have gaps in their team that they will have to fill in order to be thought of in the title race for 2019/20 season.
