It’s not even just as Arsenal thing to me. It’s a football thing. 8 straight wins isn’t a regular occurance for most teams, let alone in a tough league. Palace and Leicester aren’t mugs, they’re not the equivalent of Harlow Town! History/maths etc would suggest that we won’t be winning 8 games in a row. There is nothing wrong with thinking that, it’s not pessimism, it’s just the likely outcome.
And yeah, our defence… I reckon even Benteke will finally remember what scoring goals feels like.
