Arsenal 3 – 1 Chelsea
Great performance last night, much more like what we should be seeing every week.
Desire, commitment and quality, but why is it we can beat the Chavs but lose to the likes of WBA, Wigan etc?
Last night we pressed them high. Good defending generally, Djourou was outstanding, Koscielny played well apart from the goal.
RvP looks a bit sharper and Walcott’s pace on the wing push Cole back.
And last night tactically Wenger got it 100% right (makes a nice change)
Lets not get carried away, some tough games coming up thick and fast and we need to show the same fight and give the likes of Wigan, Birmingham & West Ham the same respect.
But lets enjoy this win, its been a long time coming.
Fabianski : 7/10 (Didnt really have much to do until the last 20mins. Came for crosses and punched well)
Sagna : 7.5/10 (One of his better games, showed great work rate and won all his 50/50 battles)
Koscielny : 8/10 ( Apart from the goal, GREAT game. Powerful and showed great pace.Lets hope we see that again)
Djourou : 9/10 (What a great game he had. Played Drogba well. Big strong, powerful, quick,and good with the ball)
Clichy :7/5 (Played well, very good link up with Nasri and his pace going forward was fantastic on the break)
Fabregas : 8/10 ( 2 assists and a goal. Not a bad night on his return)
Nasri : 7/10 ( Great pace and workrate but didnt have that cutting edge to his game last night. Missed a big chance)
Walcott : 8/5 ( Very good game by Theo, pushed Ashley back all night. Took his goal well and a nice assist for the 2nd. Needs to start more games ahead of Rosicky and Arshavin now)
Song : 9.5/10 ( A beast in the middle of the park. Won everything and gave it simple. Popped up with a vitial goal just before H/T and his run in the 90mins was just work class.
Wilshere : 7/10 ( linked the play well and keep the ball. Won his share of tackles, glad to see him start ahead of Denilson)
Van Persie : 7.5/10 ( Didnt score but its great to have him back and playing uptop. We look so much better and have a touch of class with RVP in the side, lets hope he can stay fit for the rest of the season)
Diaby : 6/10 ( Came on for Theo? I couldn’t understand that move? Should have scored but didnt fancy his left foot. But its good to see him back)
Chamakh : 6/10 (Held the ball well, but never looked like scoring with him on the pitch)
Rosicky : 6/10 ( Came on to keep the ball and he did that)
Man Of The Match : Alex Song
