Arsenal made history with their thrilling 3-2 win against Manchester United on Sunday.
The victory, their 16th in the league this season, took the Gunners to 50 points at the halfway stage of the Premier League campaign – a feat no Arsenal side has ever previously achieved.
Even the Invincibles of 2003-04 couldn’t manage it, with Arsene Wenger’s iconic team amassing 45 points from their opening 19 games.
That’s the level Arsenal are setting at the moment under Mikel Arteta.
“Extraordinary,” said the Gunners boss when asked to sum up the first half of the season following Eddie Nketiah's late winner against United.
“It doesn’t get much better than that.”
So, how have Arsenal managed it? How have they ripped up the record books to set the pace in such impressive fashion?
Below, GOAL, takes a look at some of the key matches that have been the inspiration behind the north London club’s monumental start to the 2022-23 season...
