Arsenal seem to have turned a corner under Unai Emery as the Gunners now boast a five-match unbeaten run across all competitions heading into the midweek League Cup clash with Brentford.
The North London side lost their opening two Premier League fixtures against Manchester City and Chelsea but responded ahead of the international break by defeating West Ham.
September has now seen Emery’s side sweep aside Cardiff City, Newcastle United and Everton in the league, while the Gunners also defeated Ukrainian side Vorskla in their first Europa League group stage match – and finally kept a clean sheet in Sunday’s win over the Toffees.
Scoring 11 goals in the process, Arsenal are not quite performing to their best but the considerable improvements have attracted praise from fans on social media – who responded to a tweet from the club that identified the fine form of the Gunners.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.

Unfortunately you’d still have to fancy Klopp as Manager of the Month. If we’re going to be realistic…
