New additions such as Per Mertesacker looked to boulster the defence and fill the main position in Arsenal's defence and was bought with the intention that he would be good in the air and clear crosses passed into the box by opposition players.

Players such as Robin Van Persie, a Dutch international had a prolific season in which he was Arsenal's key player.
