33 Goals in Only Eight Games: Arsenal, Ladies and Gentlemen

Arsenal have taken the Premier League by storm! In a blistering run of form, the Gunners have amassed a staggering 33 goals in just eight matches


Dominant Form

Arsenal took its place at the top of the English Premier League by defeating Sheffield United away with a great score of 6-0 in the 27th week and defeating Brentford at home with a score of 2-1 in the 28th week. With these matches, Arsenal managed to find the opponent's net 33 times in the last eight league matches. During this period, the North London team shook the opponent's net six times against West Ham United and Sheffield United, five times against Crystal Palace and Burnley, four times against Newcastle United, three times against Liverpool, and two times against Nottingham Forest.

Mikel Arteta's students gained the leadership with 64 points after 20 wins, four draws, and four losses, and are on the same points as Liverpool. Last season's champion Manchester City are in third place, just one point behind them. In addition, they are the team that scored the most goals in the Premier League with 70 goals scored in 28 matches this season.

Key Matches

Arsenal's relentless attacking force has been on full display throughout this dominant run. The Gunners kicked things off with a ruthless 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace on January 20th. This dominant performance set the tone for what was to come, with Arsenal suffocating their opponents and showcasing their clinical finishing.

This trend continued a few weeks later on February 11th, where another high-pressing masterclass saw them dismantle West Ham United 6-0. A first-half goal blitz from William Saliba, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Magalhães, and Leandro Trossard sent a clear message to the rest of the league.

The goals kept flowing as Arsenal secured another emphatic 5-0 victory against Burnley on February 17th. Their dominance continued at home a week later, where they dispatched Newcastle United 4-1, further solidifying their place at the top of the table.

These high-scoring victories were not limited to 2024. Earlier in the season, Arsenal laid the groundwork for their current success with a convincing 3-1 win over Manchester United on September 3rd, 2023, and a resounding 5-0 demolition of Sheffield United on October 28th, 2023. These early wins showcased the attacking talent at Arteta's disposal and hinted at the goal-scoring form that would propel them to the top of the table.

Impact on the Title Race

This incredible run has propelled Arsenal to the top of the Premier League table. They are currently tied on points with Liverpool but boast a superior goal difference. The pressure is now firmly on their rivals, who must find a way to stop Arsenal's juggernaut. While the season is far from over and they still have ten games to play, with a few crucial fixtures remaining, Arsenal are undoubtedly the clear favorites at this point. The title race promises to be a thrilling finish.

Manchester City vs Arsenal: Arsenal Look to Conquer the Etihad Fortress


A potential title decider awaits at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow as Arsenal face Manchester City. The Gunners, boasting a perfect record against City this season with a dramatic 1-0 win in the first encounter, will be aiming for a historic treble against the reigning champions.

However, the Etihad Stadium has been a fortress for City in recent years, with an unbeaten run stretching back 38 games in all competitions. Pep Guardiola's men are also in red-hot form, winning 15 of their last 17 matches and showcasing their hunger for a potential double-Treble.

"It is a massive game for both teams... It will give us a huge push again if we go there and win it."


However, Arsenal are determined to rewrite history. As Mikel Arteta himself declared, "It is a massive game for both teams... It will give us a huge push again if we go there and win it." A victory would not only extend their incredible run to nine consecutive league wins but also mark their first win at the Etihad since 2015.


Pep Guardiola also acknowledges the threat Arsenal poses, stating, "[Arsenal have] the same manager, new players. They control many aspects of the game. When you have consistency in terms of ideas and managers and the same patterns, at the end you always improve."

Now the question is: Can Arsenal secure their first win at the Etihad since 2015 and extend their incredible run to nine consecutive league victories? Or will City rise to the occasion, protect their home soil, and reignite their own title challenge?

Tomorrow's encounter promises to be a battle for the ages. One thing is certain: Arsenal fans will be on the edge of their seats, hoping their team can deliver another historic victory and take a giant leap towards Premier League glory!
