Suicidal third goal in first game kills us off, but there’s all to play for in England by KM

Well, we’ve seen this movie before. Arsenal chasing the impossible on the return leg after suicidal first leg defeat. There will be lots of reviews of the game so I’ll just go through what I thought was important in the two games we played vs Monaco.

Arsenal v West Ham – KJ’s Player Ratings

Arsenal 3 – 0 West Ham Player Ratings by KJ (Sorry they are late!)

Ospina – 6
A solid goalkeeping performance. Didn’t really have many saves to make but showed good distribution.

Chambers – 6
Struggled defensively against Jarvis. Seemed to completely lose his marker a few times giving West Ham free crosses. His attacking play was brilliant though, especially his crossing.

Wenger – Good performance and great finish by Giroud

Arsenal seem to have been in invincible form since the disappointment of the defeat to Monaco, and they produced yet another sublime performance today against West Ham. Arsene Wenger was obviously very pleased with the result to keep our momentum going ahead of Tuesday’s showdown in Monaco.

Man United v Arsenal – Monreal, Welbeck and Wenger star in breaking Old Trafford voodoo!

Arsenal finally win at Old Trafford with dat guy Welbz scoring! by KM

Well we saw an Arsenal victory at Old Trafford! Something which took 9 years to happen. Would you imagine it would take this long after the way Arsene was introduced into the Premier League and the contest he gave to Fergie in his first 10 years at the club?

Man United v Arsenal Player Ratings – Brilliant Monreal MOTM

Manchester United 1 – 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ

Szczesny – 6
He was pretty shaky for the entire game with a lot of iffy moments including some poor kicks from the back that put us under a lot of pressure.

Wenger explains why he chose Welbeck over Giroud….

Arsene Wenger often gets criticized for his team selection, but his surprise move of dropping Olivier Giroud from the Arsenal starting XI last night seems to have been a stroke of tactical brilliance.

Arsenal had to Fight AND Play after Nervous Start – says Wenger

Arsene Wenger was under no illusion that it was going to be an easy game against relegation-threatened QPR last night, and he was proved right as the Hoops held off Arsenal for over an hour before Oliver Giroud broke the deadlock. Although Alexis scored his first goal for 8 games, Rangers still set up a nail-biting finish by grabbing one back with 8 minutes to go on the clock.
