Mikel Arteta applauds the Arsenal fans after their Premier League victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at AMEX Stadium, Brighton, December 2022.

The Premier League table since Arsenal hired Mikel Arteta in 2019

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are currently on a tremendous run in the Premier League – but how does his Gunners record compare to their rivals since his appointment in December 2019?

Arsenal has enjoyed success in cup competitions, beating Chelsea 2-1 in the 2020 FA Cup final before winning the Community Shield in 2020 and 2023.

But his side struggled for consistency in the Premier League during his first few years in charge, falling out of the top six and finishing two consecutive seasons in eighth place.

However, the Gunners have looked like worthy title contenders for the last 18 months now and they currently sit just two points off the top of the table.

Arsenal’s recent 6-0 hammering over West Ham especially highlights just how far the Gunners have come over these last few years.

“We are maintaining and building some momentum now, and the performances have been really strong, as well as the results in recent weeks,” Arteta told reporters.

“We need to maintain that because the other teams are doing it as well, we are not the only ones, and we need to recognise that.

“After the Liverpool game, we have to show now that we have the capacity to replicate that level, or be better, and that’s the way the boys trained the whole week.”

Having won their last four league matches, Arteta’s men are on a tremendous run of form right now and there’s every chance that they go all the way this season.

Since the Spanish coach took the Arsenal job back in December 2019, only Liverpool and Manchester City have accumulated more points than the Gunners. If Arsenal want to win the league this season, they will be the two sides they need to finish above.

Note: all teams have played 158 league games unless it’s stated otherwise. If teams are on equal points, the team that has played fewer games is positioned higher. If both parties have played the same number of matches, goal difference has been used to rank them.

1. Manchester City – 363 points (157 games played)
2. Liverpool – 332 points (159 games played)
3. Arsenal – 299 points
4. Manchester United – 286 points
5. Tottenham – 273 points (159 games played)
6. Chelsea – 253 points
7. Aston Villa – 227 points (157 games played)
8. Newcastle United – 220 points
9. West Ham United – 217 points (159 games played)
10. Brighton – 210 points
11. Wolves – 201 points
12. Everton – 193 points
13. Crystal Palace – 181 points (157 games played)
