Despite losing to title challengers Liverpool before the international break, Arsenal have won six of their last seven Premier League games, scoring 11 goals in total.

Equally impressive, however, is that Patrick Vieira’s Eagles are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions, their most recent game being a 4-0 win in the FA Cup quarter-finals against Premier League contenders Everton.
