Arsenal join exclusive club

After Kai Havertz’s late winner secured Arsenal a crucial three points over the Bees, it has been revealed that the north Londoners have joined an exclusive club.

Arsenal are only the fourth side to win each of their first eight Premier League games of a calendar year; the previous three all went on to win the title that year (Manchester United in 2009, Liverpool in 2020, Manchester City in 2021).

The win was, of course, a huge one in the Premier League title race and Mikel Arteta has since given his thoughts on the game:

“It felt great,” he said. “Obviously we had to dig in and earn the right to win it. I’m really pleased with the performance, the maturity and control that we showed and how we overcame difficulties.

“If you want to be up there you have to win these types of games. The team showed that it has the tools and the determination to do so.”
