Arsenal wins again…5 in a row, is it? Meanwhile Auba is scoring in Barcelona. What if the squad actually benefited from letting go of its main striker? We have seen that it could lead to good results: ie: Owen leaving Liverpool…Anyways back to the game.
The team, especially Odegaard, was in the mood to create some good chances with silky passing, movement, sweet dribbling, decent crossing and shooting! We scored early on, courtesy of Partey on a corner from Martinelli and of a defensive lapse from Leicester. After the goal, Leicester had really good chances to equalize but they were denied by a superp/amazing/outstanding Ramsdale – what a performance from our GK during that game! The second half was not so controlled by either of the team but we managed to get a penalty, ably converted by Laca! We saw the game through, had a chance for a third but also conceded some dangerous chances…
So it seems our team is finally gelling going forward but that has coincided with being more disjointed defensively. If it were not for Ramsdale’s heroics yesterday, the game could have been a lot more edgy for us. I found that Cedric and White were not great but it did not affect the results.
The stadium was glowing and there is stronger belief that the team could achieve a Top 4 finish this season. Although, we still have tough games ahead so let us now get carried away…
COYG! Fight for the Top 4 till then end and bring us back to CL Footie!
