For the first time since ...
Arsenal have not been this good for a long, long time
There are still three games to play in this Premier League season but Arsenal have …
… reached 80 points in a Premier League season for the first time since 2008.
… equalled the club’s most goals scored in any league campaign since 2004/05 and need five more for the club’s most prolific season since the 1960s.
… kept 10 clean sheets away from home in a league season for the first time since 1991.
… as many Premier League clean sheets (13) as any season since 2016.
… seen Martin Ødegaard equal the Premier League record for goals scored (exc. penalties) by a midfielder in a single season.
… two players on 15+ league goals for the first time since 1971.
… four players on 10+ goals for the first time since 2013.
… guaranteed no team will pick up more away points than them this season.
… not picked up a red card all season. Arsenal have never gone an entire Premier League season without a red card.
… beaten 17 of the other 19 teams in the league for the time since 2012.
… been the only team to stop Newcastle from scoring and one of just two teams to beat them at St. James’ Park.
… done the double over Tottenham for the first time since 2014.
… taken at least four points off Liverpool for the first time since 2015.
… become the first club to ever win 10 London derbies in a single campaign.
… come a long, long way already.
I’ll be back with more on Arsenal’s attack later in the week. For now, bask in the glory of Sunday’s win and the reaction this wonderful team has shown to the blip in results.
