To be perfectly honest I would not have been all that surprised if Arsenal had fluffed their lines in the Champions League clash with Dinamo Zagreb, or at the very least made hard work of beating the Croatian team. We have had a bit of a hard time of it lately with injury problems mounting up, some bad luck and the level of performances dropping.
But the way the Gunners set about things and dominated the visiting team was just perfect and as well the win keeping our Champions League hopes alive, it was yet another feather in the cap for the fighting team spirit that the Gunners now have.
People keep doubting Arsenal’s ability to keep going or how we will react to a setback or two but once again the players stepped up and to a man showed that we will not let bad things get us down. Obviously we want them to go to Athens and finish the remarkable comeback job in the Champions League but the Premier League is still a huge priority for us this season.
And after the way Arsenal played against Zagreb with the pressure and doubts beginning to mount up, is anyone really worried about our trip to face Norwich City in the Premier League this weekend?
