The five best performers in the league so far.
It’s been a great Premier League season for Arsenal so far in 2013/14 as the north London club top the division with 31 points from their first 13 matches.
Here are their five best players from that time, with statistics courtesy of WhoScored.
5. Per Mertesacker – rating 7.16
It’s been an impressive rise for the Germany international after arriving at the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2011 from Werder Bremen.
Initially Mertesacker looked sluggish and off the pace in the English game, but the 29-year-old has adapted and now forms a superb central defensive partnership with Laurent Koscielny.
