Jack Wilshere posted the word “massive” on his Instagram story after Arsenal beat Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
Mikel Arteta and his players went into tonight’s game after losing three straight Premier League games.
Slowly but surely, their top 4 hopes were dwindling from them, but they kept their best form until it mattered most.
Take your pick – the return of Mohamed Elneny, Eddie Nketiah’s corset, Martin Odegaard directing the show in the middle of the park, or Bukayo Saka doing what he does best.
It was a brilliant response from these young stars to answer their critics and now go level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham.
Arsenal now know they can secure Champions League football for next season if they win their remaining Premier League games.
Of course, that means having to beat Manchester United on Saturday and claiming bragging rights in the north London derby.
Either way, it’s a declaration of intent from the London club and a sign that there’s still life left in this Arsenal side.
Given how indifferent the pursuers in the top 4 can be, there’s likely to be a few more losses along the way.
But what a bonus it is for someone like Arteta to have Nketiah score his first Premier League goals of the season at this stage of the season.
