Arsenal become first team in Premier League history to manage impressive feat five times in the space of a year

Arsenal have made an impressive piece of Premier League history by becoming the first team ever in the competition to win five games with stoppage time goals in the space of one calendar year.

Declan Rice headed home a dramatic goal for the Gunners away to Luton Town on Tuesday night, making it 4-3 to Mikel Arteta’s side in stoppage time and delivering an important three points.

We saw similar moments from Arsenal last season, such as with Reiss Nelson firing home that memorable stoppage time winner at home to Bournemouth.

Arsenal are clearly making a habit of it, with this impressive record surely showing the improved mental strength of the team under Arteta’s management…

Ar senal are now leading the way in this season’s title race and will no doubt be hoping they can go a step further than last year, when they ultimately lost out to Manchester City’s treble winners.

It might be that they’ll need a few more late winners like this, though fans might also hope the side can start to get a bit better at closing out games earlier on.

Arsenal considering signing new defender to replace player who could leave on loan

Arsenal are reportedly considering letting Jakub Kiwior leave on loan and they could make a signing in defence to replace him if that happens.

Kiwior has long been linked with AC Milan, and now a report from 90min claims that the Serie A giants are ready to open talks over a deal for the Poland international.

Arsenal could be taking a bit of a risk letting Kiwior go, with Mikel Arteta surely remembering how badly his side were hurt in the title race last season when William Saliba was injured for some big games towards the end of the campaign.

If the Gunners have a similar problem this term, it would show they hadn’t learned from their mistakes, and fans would surely be furious that such a situation was allowed to occur again.

remains to be seen who Arsenal could target to replace Kiwior, but it might be tricky finding a player of a similar level who is prepared to spend a lot of time as a squad player, coming in and out of the starting line up.

Still, Milan could do with strengthening in defence and Kiwior would be ideal to improve them in that position.
