There were plenty of positives to take from this season, and although many pessimists say Arsenal failed yet again – here’s why the Gunners season was a positive one.
1. Being at the top of the league for 128 days:
This statistic shows how far the team progressed from the 12/13 season through to the 13/14 season. In total we amassed more than double the days at the top of the league than Chelsea, who had the next best figure at 64. From mid-September through to early February we were consistently hovering around the top of the table and there was a lot of talk that we might actually win the title. Unfortunately, we tailed away quite badly after embarrassing defeats to the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea. Injuries definitely cost us in these crucial parts of the season, but it is definitely promising that we could sustain such a long period at the top, something we hadn’t been able to do consistently for a few years.
