Our goals were scored by Alexis [12 & 90] and Theo 
Once again it wasn’t the smooth flowing dominant Arsenal we all want to see, it was more huff and puff, chase and slip, let’s get lucky Arsenal. Alexis was at times a one man show, he runs for everything, makes himself available, chases back, scores great goals and then stand with his hands on hips thinking ‘Why isn’t everyone else playing like me?’
Do we all expect too much? After all, these reports are made up from the collective thoughts of the fans and so many times we hear, ‘lucky win today’ or ‘we’re sh*t but we’ll still be champions’, how is this possible?
Arsene this season has got an immense squad. When they are all fit the talent he has to pick from must make him scratch his head in frustration as he must think too ‘Why don’t they all play like Alexis?’
Laurent and Shkodran bossed the back, we like the fact they don’t get pushed around and they are great a getting stuck in. Nachos penalty was just stupidity, put your arm across a player to stop him going forward in the box and the ref is going to give a spot kick, it’s not rocket science.
Mohamed also had a good game, he’s a bit slow at times but he has that Ray Parlour enthusiasm that we like, the passion to win everything. Alex is just Alex, at times an unstoppable force, he just needs to barge his way into the first team and play every minute he can because he is probably one of the most complete players around.
Mesut has many many off days but to be frank, his off days still put him head and shoulders above everyone else in Europe. Theo is just an enigma, right place, right time, classy goal, job done.
Well next up is the visit of Southampton in the EFL Cup on Wednesday 30 November 2016 kick off 19.45
Win, lose or draw, we support Arsenal evermore.
