Alex Hleb: Why Arsenal are tearing every team apart this season

Alex Hleb has been very impressed by Arsenal's start to the new Premier League season

Alex Hleb believes that Arsene Wenger’s management style is the key for Arsenal’s strong start to the new season.

The north London side have been one of the Premier League’s top performing teams this term after bouncing back from the disappointment of losing their opening game 4-3 to Liverpool.

The Gunners are currently in third place in the Premier League table and just two points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games of the new season.

Much has been made of Arsenal’s failure to win the Premier League in recent years but Wenger’s team have made a strong start to the campaign.

And former Gunners playmaker Hleb has praise Wenger for his managerial approach.

Hleb is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “Wenger always sets the highest goals.

“He has managed to keep his key players and they are playing great football.

“They are tearing everyone apart.”

Hleb left Arsenal to join Barcelona in July 2008 but struggled to make much of an impact at Camp Nou.

And the Belarus international is still full of admiration for Arsenal boss Wenger.

He continued: “I was playing at the top of my game in London and it was the best moments of my career.

“On the one hand, I regret that I did not stay at Arsenal. Wenger was like a father to me and trusted me. I get sad when I start to think about this.

“On the other hand, Barcelona was and still is the strongest club. I did not play that often, but I still got game-time.”
