Arsenal are back & hunting down Liverpool!’ – Merson in jovial mood as confidence returns to Gunners.

A man who has been critical of Mikel Arteta’s side this season is pleased to see back-to-back wins restore some belief at Emirates Stadium

Paul Merson has not been shy in airing his disappointment at Arsenal’s showings in 2020-21, but back-to-back wins have the former Gunners star joking that Mikel Arteta’s side “are back” and “hunting down Liverpool”.

A testing opening to the latest Premier League campaign has been endured by those in north London.

Arsenal got off to their worst start to a season since 1974-75, with uncomfortable questions being asked of Arteta and his lack of experience in top-level management.

The tide did, however, start to turn during the festive period, with the Gunners collecting morale-boosting victories over Chelsea and Brighton.

Those at Emirates Stadium cannot claim to be fully recovered, with there still a lot of work to be done by Arteta and Co, but they are moving in the right direction again.

Merson is looking to take encouragement from that, with the ex-Gunners midfielder seeing confidence returning to a side that has been alarmingly short of that quality this term.
