Despite leading the Premier League table for the majority of the 2022/23 season, Arsenal failed to add the title to their name. They finished five points behind once again crowned champions Manchester City in the table. However, it will not take away the credit from the incredible last ten months the Gunners had in the competition.

The Gunners have equalled their all-time record number of wins in a 38-game Premier League season with 26 as was in the 2001/02 and 2003/04 campaigns. Their 5-0 victory over Wolves is the joint-highest margin of victory managed after thrashing Nottingham by the same margin last October.
Arsenal reached 84 points this term, which is also the third-highest Premier League points tally in the club’s history. Both in the previous occasion, 2001/02 and 2003/04, the North Londoners went on to lift the league title under Arsene Wenger.
