Great win by the boys but we all know that Premier League games mean nothing seeing as we're out of contention for UEFA spots. What I was hoping to see was Arteta using this game as a chance to play players into form
When the lineup came out I was a little stunned to see Saka listed at LB, even though hes played there before. To every gooner surprise Xhaka is the one that ended up slotting in at LB and boy did he look comfortable. I thought we started a tad slow and sloppy but slowly grew into the game. Laca got the first goal but boy was Ceballos assist MAAAAAD. What a flick from fucking spinning top, especially after the horror shows hes put up with his previous performances.
Buy the shirt!!
Martinelli started his first game in lord knows how log and what a performance the kid had. His energy and work rate is second to none. IF HE DOESNT START THURSDAY We RIOT! I mean take a look at this highlight tape considering hes been out for a while
Overall it was pretty comfortable. Laca scored his second goal of the game to make it 3-0 and with that goal, he has now scored 50 premier league goals for Arsenal. Pepe and Partey had good games too. Partey use of his body and pass for Lacazette second goal was brilliant.
All focus is now on the big one on Thursday. Hopefully we can get a couple of our players that were out back to strengthen the squad a little. Im extremely nervous about the game. In theory we should be able to beat them easy, but everyone knows Arsenal likes to bottle it. Im saying 2-0 us for Thursday. Elsewhere in London....
