Hopefully this win for Arsenal against West Bromwich Albion will settle the nerves of the Arsenal players and allow us to play to our usual level for the rest of the season. If we do that then we should have no problem finishing in the top four and hopefully in the top three to avoid a Champions League play-off at the start of the new season.
Alexis Sanchez was on it tonight and his early goal was just what Arsene Wenger and the Emirates crowd needed. It was a fantastic piece of individual skill from the striker, riding a challenge and spinning towards goal before unleashing a fierce shot past Foster.
But after Arsenal had only managed to draw the two previous games against West Ham and Crystal Palace despite leading both, there was still an air of tension around the ground. So for the Chile international to get a second before the break was just what we needed and no more than Arsenal and Alexis deserved and it was another piece of great skill, bamboozling the Baggies keeper with a slick free kick.
West Brom had hit the bar inb the first half anf Pulis sent another forward on to seek a way back but they never really troubled us too much and Arsenal should have scored more goals ourselves. But a comfortable win takes us above Man City and out of reach of Man United.
So are the top four wobbles over for Arsenal?
