What an unbelievable season Arsenal are having. I mean really, it’s unbelievable isn’t it? They’re five points clear of Manchester City with a game in hand having won 16 of their 19 games. They’ve got 15 more points than at the same stage last season.

And pretty much to a man, they’ve been brilliant. Which made picking five players they need to upgrade impossible, so we picked four. But also made choosing five players to build around tricky as they have way more than five.

So we’ve selected our top five, ignoring Aaron Ramsdale, Thomas Partey, Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Magalhaes and more who could have so easily made the cut.

We needn’t have worried about Eddie Nketiah. When Gabriel Jesus got injured rival fans breathed a sigh of relief. ‘OK, this is the point at which Arsenal’s season crumbles,’ they thought. But not a bit of it.

The Englishman has played every minute of Arsenal’s six games since, in a run which has seen them win all but one the 0-0 draw with Newcastle and includes the scalps of Tottenham and Manchester United, with Nketiah scoring six of their 15 goals.
