After a slow start to his management career, Mikel Arteta has guided Arsenal to an astonishing 22-23 start.
The club's recent strong recruiting has been a major factor in the Spaniard's success.
But his own tactical acumen and footballing philosophy have also played a significant role.
It's hardly surprising that so many FIFA 23 players choose to represent Arsenal.
Given that the club's faithful may once again hold out hope for Premier League triumph.
However, like Arteta, they will need to discover the right structure and starting eleven for Arsenal if they are to find success this season.
