The Gunners pulled off an impressive 1-0 victory against Manchester United on Sunday night as they beat the Red Devils at Old Trafford in the league for the first time in 14 years.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal from the penalty spot was enough for the north London side to take all three points and end a run of 29 games without a win away at the ‘big six’.
Mikel Arteta’s plan to smother Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s diamond midfield worked to perfection in the first half as Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey outfought their opposition in the middle of the park.
Although the Red Devils improved in the second half, they struggled to create enough clear cut chances in order to equalise.
Arsenal have now moved up to ninth place in the Premier League and are just a point away from the top four.
Gunners legend Adams feels his former side are improving rapidly, but are still a goalkeeper and creative midfielder away from winning the league.
‘They’ll finish above United, they’re a top six team for me,’ Adams told Stadium Astro.
‘Great positive signs especially not only the result today but the performances.
‘But there were great, great signs today, we’ve got another couple of leaders now in central defence and central midfield, so, top six, we’re getting closer.’
