The Gunners finished 4th in the 2013-14 season but after a good consistent season, they moved one place up and booked their place in the group stage of the Champions League. The summer signings started to gel well and the squad looked hard to beat. They had some great moments last season and some not so good ones. But the manager will want his team to keep fighting and playing like they did even in the new season.
In this article, we will look back at the last season of Arsenal and how they performed. We will take a look at the highs enjoyed and the lows suffered by the team in the previous campaign.
The club had some great moments to savor in the previous season. They lifted their second FA Cup in as many years last season. They beat Aston Villa in a convincing 4-0 showdown and took the cup. This would have been the best moment in the previous season for the fans. After this victory, the club has made sure that it shows consistency in its performances.
Another game that the fans loved watching was the 4-1 drubbing at the Emirates that the club gave to the Kop. Though Liverpool were not at their best, Arsenal looked clinical and made a statement of their intent in the game. They played Galatasaray in the group stages and beat them with an aggregate of 8-2 over the two legs.
They also beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions league and Manchester City in the Premier League at home with some memorable performances.
The club’s Champions League hopes were dashed even though they won 2-0 away from home to Monaco after an embarrassing 3-1 loss at home. They went out only on the away goals rule but it was something that the club will have to improve upon. They will want to advance through the quarter-final stage of the league and give themselves a chance at silverware in Europe.
Arsenal would have been in the title race for most of the season but their inconsistency in the league cost them a chance. They drew many games against weaker opponents and were not able to win many games against top 4 rivals. They lost to Swansea and Stoke, United, City and Chelsea away from home. They will want to change their record on the travels if they want their hands on silverware even in this season.
The 2-1 loss to Manchester United at the Emirates must be the most forgettable moment for the club as they looked like winning for most of the game.
Arsene Wenger has not made too many purchases this summer. It shows that he has great confidence in his squad and expects them to deliver again in the next season. They have to get rid of the inconsistency in their game and makes sure that they give their best on the field every time they go out.
