Before the Man United game, most Arsenal fans were regretting that Laurent Koscielny was taken out injured and were worried that Per Mertesacker would have to partner Gabriel in defence, but they held firm against the so-called deadly Man United attack force, and along with Petr Cech (5 shots – 5 saves) stopped the Red Devils from making any sort of comeback.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN EXPECTING! by Uche
An excellent day all round for Arsenal as they finally found their scoring boots and Walcott, Giroud and Sanchez all getting on the scoresheet and doubling our tally for the season to 10.

Arsenal’s defeat to Chelsea yesterday was overshadowed by the antics of Diego Costa but Arsene Wenger felt that the Gunners were in little danger from Jose Mourinho’s side until the Gabriel sending off.
