First was Hleb, then Fabregas followed by Adebayor now its Van Persie…..

By 1970’s Gooner

After the “pass the ball round” that the kids of Arsenal used to play virtually all of last season now we have a new game being played on the lush green of the Emirates: “anything you can do I can do better”

Everyone predicted that, in the absence of Henry who was for a number of years the most significant source of goals, this young team would find it pretty hard to find alternative ways and personnel to score.

How wrong could they be? It’s now becoming a race between the players as to who will take up the mantle of supplying that rarest commodity in football.

During the preseason and the first few games in the League it was Hleb who started getting on the score sheet.

His new position of playing just behind the front striker gave him the platform to gain the necessary confidence in front of goal. Something he struggled with all last season. He was top scorer at one point.

When he was moved back to his “natural” position up stepped Fabregas who suddenly found his scoring boots.

The lad couldn’t stop scoring mostly with thunderbolts from outside the area.

He now has four in the league and three in the Champions League.

Not to be outdone Adebayor and Van Persie got in on the act with the first netting three before his hat trick against Derby.

Then Van Persie started finding the net again after an initial burst. He has now scored four in his last three games.

This shows that this team has the winners within its midst who can score the goals from different parts of the football pitch.

If it’s not the front two then the midfielders will step in and who knows, we will soon see some of the defenders getting in on the act too.

Kolo Toure is due one and Senderos may feel confident enough to keep adding to his tally!

If this team manages to defeat the last remaining remnant of last season’s long list of weaknesses, concentration, then the sky is the limit.

Who Would Wenger Take From Manchester United’s Team?

Who knows we may see Sagna and clichy get their goals. After Senderos anything is possible

This difficult win should serve as a warning that complacency should have no place in this team

I love this teams attitude. It seems they are not getting carried away and are just taking it a game at a time. The players have stepped up to the responability of Henry's exit and how. I feel the biggest test is when we lose, but im sure this squad have the right mentality to just deal with it and get on with the next game. Its so good to see us at the top again where we belong!

I agree with the previous comment. Its when we loose that the real character will show. But come to think of it will we loose this season?

totally agree with everyone, henry's departure made everyone raise their game. The defence was a bit dodgy against sunderland but I am sure the lads will learn from the mistakes, bring on bolton and united

The big test will come when we play the first big 4 team and thats Liverpool. If we win that tyhen belief amongst the players will be so huge that there will be no stopping us
