Arsenal: Arteta Found His Own Lewandoski In Ace, Arsenal VS Liverpool Supremacy Battle

I'm confident that Robert Lewandoski would be one of the three strikers that a football fan would name as the three best in the league right now. Since they were having trouble scoring goals in 2022-23, Arsenal had no choice but to sign a striker last summer. It is now well known that they chose Gabriel Jesus, and what a difference he has made for Arsenal's attack.

But consider what might have happened if Arsenal had instead signed Robert Lewandoski, who was desperate to leave Bayern Munich in the summer. As you consider what Lewandoski might have brought to Arsenal, Thierry Henry has hinted that Jesus is having the same effect (at Arsenal) that Lewandoski is having on Barcelona's stellar form.

According to an Arsenal legend, Ering Haaland may be the forward grabbing all the attention, but Lewandoski and Jesus are two forwards who deserve praise for the contributions they are making to the various teams they joined last summer. "If you argue the fact that Manchester City - were they top of the league last year, Were they competing? Were Barca top of the league? No, they were not. I'm not always talking about the goals or what you do. Some types of players have an impact on what he does and what he brings," said Henry.

"For example, with Gabriel Jesus, you can see what he's bringing to the team, that winning mentality. Not a lot of guys won in that team at Barcelona. You have a couple of the old guard that did it, but not a lot of the guys did it."

At the Emirates on Sunday, Arsenal will host Liverpool. Given Arsenal's outstanding season and Liverpool's struggles, one might wonder if Arsenal has surpassed Liverpool as Man City's main rival.

Paul Merson, an Arsenal legend, argues: "If Arsenal go 14 points clear on Sunday, it takes Liverpool out of the equation for Arsenal. The main aim for Arsenal is to be in the top four. We’ve seen what Manchester City can do, but being in the top four and being competitive, they can’t lose that insight or get carried away," Merson said.
