Graeme Souness has claimed that Arsenal fans will have been frustrated watching the 5-2 victory over Everton.
The Gunners dominated the Blues from start to finish in the Premier League encounter, but that didn’t stop them from trailing for almost half an hour in the first half.
Wayne Rooney opened the scoring with a sublime finish inside 12 minutes, and Jordan Pickford kept them in the lead with a number of saves, but he couldn’t deny Arsenal eventually.
Nacho Monreal equalised for us just before half-time, and the onslaught continued after the break, and we eventually walked away with a comfortable 5-2 victory, and Souness claims that it would have been a tough watch for Gunners fans.
“If you’re an Arsenal supporter, how frustrating is it watching that?” he said.
“In seven days you’ve seen the two sides of Arsenal.
“In terms of playing football, creating chances, it doesn’t get any better than this. It doesn’t get any better than this if you’re Arsenal.
“If you analyse the first half it was all Arsenal.
“They get people forward quickly, accurate passing, slick passing.
“Some of the goals are avoidable if you put your Everton head on. But some of the quality of these goals…”
Our displays against Watford and Red Star Belgrade this week certainly could have been better, and you can understand the former Blackburn manager’s thoughts.
We lost the battle with Watford last weekend, which led to a number of fans and pundits to claim we played without fight and ‘cojones’, and sometimes only the reaction afterwards is the only way to truly see if a team has what it takes to compete, and I feel we done that today.
Did we show our ‘cojones’ today? Did the win this week lead to frustrating thoughts?
