How the season will end
By Bulldog Drummond
The transformation of both Arsenal and Newcastle across the last three seasons has been extraordinary. As we know at the moment Arsenal are top and Newcastle are third, having played one game more. But it is interesting to compare these clubs over the previous seasons…
3 January 2023 (Season 2022/23)
Staying with 17 games played but going back one year to 17 December 2021 (Season 2021/22) Arsenal were fourth but a long way off the leaders and Newcastle were looking like relegation contenders
Going back one more season to 16 December 2020 (Season 2020/21) Arsenal were again fourth and Newcastle were ready for the drop.
For Arsenal this period has shown the coming together of a plan conceived when Arteta was introduced as manager – a plan which saw the club drop down to 15th after 14 games in the 2020/21 season, at which point Newcastle were actually above Arsenal (on 20 December 2020).
