Arsenal had a tumultuous start to the season but it seems that their course has since been righted.

With a win against Chelsea, the Gunners will have shown that they have found their groove in the league and will go on a rampage and find their spot in the Champions League places once again.

Arsene Wenger’s men are starting to play their brand of football, led by a healthy and in-form Robin Van Persie.

Van Persie has become the heart of the Arsenal attack. He has played great during Arsenal’s turn around.

His play with his back to the goal shows his creating ability. He involves others in the offense and makes outstanding runs post-pass to stretch the back line and allow for strong offensive movement to take place.

Van Persie has also been in good goal-scoring form. He has nine goals on the season with seven in the league.

Another key to Arsenal’s success has been Mikel Arteta. The former Everton man has fit into the middle of the park for the Gunners and been a great creator.

Arsenal supporters feared losing their former captain Cesc Fabregas because of his play making ability, but Arteta has stepped in and done a great job.

He certainly has a long way to go to rid supporter’s minds of Fabregas but so far Arteta’s performances should be applauded.

Arsenal also has a revived Theo Walcott. Walcott’s speedy play upon the wing has always had the potential to bring a new dimension to the Arsenal offense over the past few seasons, but his streaky form has held him back.

Right now Theo Walcott is in top form and showing why Arsene Wenger had so much support in him early in his footballing career.

With a win against Chelsea the Gunners will have their statement game and put a stamp on their turnaround.
