Glen Johnson, a former Liverpool player, has likened Arsenal's current run for the Premier League championship to Leicester City's in the previous year.
With 57 points from 24 games, the Gunners are now two points clear of Manchester City in the 2022–23 Premier League standings.
While Liverpool and Chelsea have struggled this year, Mikel Arteta's team has done better than anticipated thus far.
The Blues are now in 10th place with just 31 points after 24 games, while the runners-up from the previous season are at seventh with 36 points after 23 games.
Johnson was questioned about his prior designation of Arsenal as a "one-season wonder" during an interview with ICE 36. He answered:
He and his brother moved to Canberra and played grade cricket for the Australian Capital Territory under the tutelage of coaches Mark Higgs and John Davison.
I wasn't really that severe, so that's not completely true. I said that I didn't anticipate them to continue performing at this level for the ensuing four years.
All of the elite teams are now underwhelming. I don't anticipate any of Liverpool, Chelsea, or Manchester United to do poorly in the upcoming season.
