The first reason is quite unique, It’s been 7 years Arsenal has no title. Actually, they could have finished the title fast when entering the Final Carling Cup 2011. But what power, they even lost to Birmingham City (FYI, in the same season Birmingham relegated from BPL). Nonetheless, Arsenal supporters do not get discouraged. Your team is consistent to follow the UEFA Champions League every season since 1997. Holders of the most Champions league champions on British soil have not followed UCL in the last three years. Not an easy thing to stay in the big four zone every season. In the meantime, you can also visit www.manchester2002-uk.com/premier-league/arsenal/news/ to get more news about Arsenal.
The second reason is the 4-2-3-1 that keeps developing. Since last year, Arsene Wenger is more fond of using a 4-2-3-1 formation with Robin Van Persie as the spearhead. And this year, even without Robin, Arsenal continue to use the formation. It can even be said that the players already understand how to use this formation. In other words, this North London club will have no trouble applying tactics from Arsene and making the game more unified.
The final reason is that the Goalkeeper From Reserve. Not many teams dare to use the goalkeeper from the reserve team as the final defender. However this time, Arsenal entrust the position of the main goalkeeper and reserve to players coming from the reserve team. After the era of David Seaman, Jens Lehmann, and Manuel Almunia finally Arsenal using goalkeeper results of their youth team that is Wojciech Szczesny and Vito Mannone. The result is not too bad.
