Arsenal legend Martin Keown has applauded the club for their business in the January transfer window.
The Gunners signed Leandro Trossard and Jorginho, two players who have been quick to make an impact on the side.
Mikel Arteta’s side ended a four game winless run with a 4-2 victory over Aston Villa before beating Leicester 1-0 on Saturday.
Speaking to White and Jordan on talkSPORT, Keown was on hand to praise the side for their recent results before lauding the club’s new signings.
He said: “A fantastic response at Villa and then a really convincing performance against Leicester. We know that Brendan Rodgers knows his tactics, tried to press against Arsenal.
“I thought the move to put Trossard as a false nine was really inspired. Eddie Nketiah you could see against Manchester City maybe lost his way in front of goal a little bit, just needed to be brought out of the firing line.
“The way that he [Arteta] interchanges Trossard, that’s been a snip. The business that they made, Jorginho as well, he’s so intelligent with his passing.
“They could leave Thomas Partey on the bench because they knew that they’ve still got a player, they don’t have to rush him back.”
Trossard, who arrived from Brighton for £27million, scored his first goal for the club in their 1-1 draw against Brentford, and had a superb effort disallowed by VAR against Leicester.
Fellow January arrival Jorginho signed on deadline day with Brighton keeping hold of their key target Moises Caicedo.
Host Jim White if signing the the former Chelsea star was an accident, but Keown replied: “Well, it’s been a good accident.
“I really like the way he passes the ball, the way he’s controlling people around him, his leadership.
“He hasn’t won a Premier League but he’s pretty much won everything else, the Champions League and trophies for his country. He’s really come in and hit the ground running.”
He added: “As a part-time signing, to look at what was done, the business that was done in the window, it’s really enhanced the team just at the right moment.”
Victory at Leicester has seen Arsenal remain top of the Premier League table.
They are still two points clear of City and have a game in hand over the reigning champions.
Arteta’s new arrivals will surely continue to boost their squad, with this season’s title race set to go down to the wire.
