'Not happened to Arsenal for many, many years': Ian Wright shares a big difference at the Emirates this season

Ian Wright has said the fans at the Emirates Stadium have got louder this season as Arsenal have raced to the top of the Premier League.

The Gunners have gone into the World Cup five points clear of reigning champions Manchester City after beating Wolves on Saturday night.

Wright told Optus Sport that the atmosphere among the club’s fans is now louder than he has heard it for many, many years.

Wright on Arsenal fans

He said: “The fans as well, the Ashburton Army, the way they have got these fans behind the Clock End right behind the team.

“They are just singing continually. That’s not happened to Arsenal for many, many years.

“They are actually getting these players through it. The fans are making a big, big difference.”

Arsenal fans have faced numerous jokes about the atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium since they moved there from Highbury.

They have not won the title since they moved there and it is all about making good memories and having big moments to make a stadium feel more like home.

West Ham had that last season with their London Stadium; only during their run to the Europa League semi-finals did it feel more like home.

Arsenal fans have clearly made a concerted effort to improve the noise levels this season and Wright feels it is having an impact on the pitch.
