I was so disappointed that Arsenal did not go for the jugular today and take advantage of the poor run of form that our local rivals Tottenham have been suffering with. Instead we let them settle and grow into the game and then once we had finally got going and taken the lead, we let them off the hook again by conceding as needless penalty which saw the game end in another draw.
Perhaps it was the fact that the Spurs boss Pochettino changed their system and went to three at the back that put us off, but the most noticable thing was that our tempo was too slow and we were way too cautious. I thought we would put the visitors under pressure from the off but they had all the time in the world to pass it around at the back and in midfield.
Arsenal did get going and start to domi8nate and create chances but when the goal did come just before halftime it came from a Wimmer own goal from an Ozil free kick. INstead of pressing our advantage after the restart though, we were cautious again and invited pressure and we paid the ultimate price.
It was a soft penalty but Koscielny did clip Dembele after he was allowed to roam into the box. He didn’t need to tackle him as Dembele was going nowhere nut there you go and although it was not a great penalty from Kane which Cech nearly saved it levelled the score.
The Gunners huffed and puffed and Wenger went for it by bringing on Ramsey, Giroud and the Ox but we were not the same side that has been in such good form of late and did not really deserve to win.
