Can the Gunners recover from last season’s defeat?

Pain. Mikel Arteta repeated the word several times. And it was simple to see why. Arsenal had just beaten Everton 5-1, but they were only two points behind bitter rivals Tottenham in fourth place in the Premier League.

So, yeah, ‘pain’ summed up how he, his players, and the club’s fans felt on May 22. What hurt the most was that Arsenal had put themselves in a strong position to return to the Champions League for the first time since 2016.

Their worst characteristics, however, were on display at Tottenham on May 12, when they lost the game and their discipline in a 3-0 defeat. They were beaten again four days later, prompting Granit Xhaka to question their character.

Those doubts about Arsenal’s resolve remain, but there is an undeniable sense of optimism at the Emirates right now. On and off the field, the summer has gone better than expected.

So, can Arteta’s team finally live up to their full potential?
