Arsenal had very little problem extending their winning run to seven in a row when they disposed of Aston Villa 3-0 at the Emirates yesterday. The first goal came from the unlikely source of Kieran Gibbs and was swiftly followed by the second from Theo Walcott, but Arteta’s bullet-like freekick in the second half capped of an excellent performance by the whole team.
Wenger was understandably delighted after the match. He said: “I felt it was a very dynamic, fluent performance in the first half with top technical quality. It was a controlled performance in the second half, we controlled the game and managed not to concede a goal.
“Our fatigue came in a bit because we gave a lot at Everton on Wednesday night to win the game. Overall I am very happy, very pleased because we managed to score goals and not concede any. We have consistency at the moment, so let’s go home and wait for the next game.”
In the space of a month Arsenal have completely turned around their fortunes, and another win next week at struggling QPR will cap off one of the best Marchs in the history of Arsenal.
And with Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City all drawing, perhaps second place is the new target?

Up gunners i think d second position we shd forget it for nw………i
If that is achieved, then the guys who wanted AW to be sacked in august should go to the next game wearing an egg on their faces.
Forgive me but there`s something that really puzzles me about new player signings.
For the last two seasons we have had eleventh hour signings with all the obvious drawbacks. Every man and his dog knew players had to be purchased early in the window to be blended into the Arsenal mode, but it didn`t happen.
Now Wenger is echoing exactly what the fans have been shouting….how come?
Were is hands tied by the board that made him look stubborn and stupid? I can`t believe for one second that he was so naive with all his experience. Maybe Kroenke is a breath of fresh air after all. Some thing has changed.
i doubt it let us not forget that this problem is Arsene’s fault. firstly with his failed youth project then failing to replace several key players b4 they actually left and then failing to replace stars that are failing at the club so cries for him to leave weren’t far fetched… That bein said i also think hole should be given major praise for the recent turn in form as the has a new found confident mentality that was missing in previous years. if he can capitalize on this in the summer transfer and we win some trophies next season then all will be forgiven.
