Arsenal v Everton Player Ratings – Ozil stars

Arsenal 2 – 0 Everton Player Ratings by KJ

Ospina – 7
He made a couple of good saves but he was also dodgy at times with some unneeded rushing out of his goal to claim loose balls.

Bellerin – 7
He was far better than his mid-week performance. More purpose in his passing and offensive movement as well as better discipline when defending.

Gabriel – 7.5
He was very strong for his full Premier league debut. He made good tackles and although he did get caught out once, he was overall very solid.

Arsenal v Everton game a masterstroke by Wenger!!

Arsenal fans owe Wenger a round of applause by Sam P

I saw the article on JUst Arsenal about Arsene Wenger and his decision to mkae only two changes to the Arsenal XI for the home game against Everton today and I must say that I agree in general with the point that it was a really risky move from the Prof.

Wenger – An Arsenal win was vital today! And Giroud was great!

Arsenal desparately needed to bounce back with a win today after our disappointment in midweek, and they managed to beat a team that has usually managed to contain us in the last couple of seasons. This has consolidated our Third Place and left us just four points behind Man City in second place.

Arsenal v Everton review – Giroud and Rosicky score – Back on track!

Arsenal managed to make about two tentative passes before giving the ball away to Everton in a dangerous position and causing the nerves to surface in the crowd and remind the players just howm badly they played against Monaco on Wednesday. So right from the off we lost a bit of confidence and Everton felt comfortable.

And the fact that this was the same starting XI bar two that played in midweek ensured that those nerves would be right at the forefront of the players’ minds. This was highlighted when about 10 minutes in the visitors were allowed to have about two minutes popping the ball around with no real pressure. Everton had over 70 percent possession in the first quarter of an hour but at least they had not punished us with a goal.

Official team news and preview of Arsenal v Everton – OZIL starts?!?

If there was one Arsenal player that I expected to get the old shepherd’s crook from Arsene Wenger then it was Mesut Ozil. But maybe the fact that the boss left the German on for the whole 90 minutes of torture against Monaco on Wednesday showed that Wenger has a blind spot when it comes to our club record signing.

At least `embarrassed´ Arsenal star will NOT hide

Arsenal fans will be hoping and expecting more than just a positive attitude from the France international striker Olivier Giroud tomorrow, if Arsene Wenger selects him to play against Everton at the Emirates stadium that is.

But having the right attitude will be a good place to start for the big Frenchman after he put in one of the worst displays we have seen from him since he came to Arsenal nearly three years ago. But it was not the first time that Giroud has missed chances.

Have Arsenal just become TOO NICE?

The good guys do not always win, Arsenal fans, despite what Hollywood westerns would have you believe! In fact you could go a bit further and say that when it come to competitive team sports, being bad has a distinct advantage. Only this week we had the revelation from our big strong centre forward Olivier Giroud that the Arsenal copaches were trying to bring out a bit of the bad in him.

Analysis of a NIGHTMARE night for Arsenal

Lack of effort, concentration and luck reasons why Arsenal lost v Monaco. by MV

Arsenal v Monaco was a nightmare to Arsenal Fans around the world. Arsenal played horribly and even when Arsenal got back into the game, the team dug themselves into another huge hole. I was reading a lot of comments after the game and blame was given to a lot of players, but I believe that some criticism is unfair.

Arsenal v Monaco review – Stunned Gunners killed by caution

It was important for Arsenal to get a good start and put early pressure on Monaco tonight and we did that for about FIVE MEASLY MINUTES, and it was all downhill from there. After using our pace and the wide areas well and getting the French team in a bit of a spin, the visitors soon started to settle down and get into the game and the Gunners just let them.

Is Giroud Arsenal’s very own Diego Costa?

The French centre-forward Olivier Giroud is adamant that he can prove to Arsenal fans that he is as good as Chelsea’s Costa or Man City’s Aguero, and is trying to convince Arsene Wenger that he has no need to go for Jackson Martinez to bolster the Gunners forward line.

He told L’Equipe: “I don’t have an inferiority complex. I don’t have their name, but – in terms of stats – I am just behind Costa and Aguero,”

Strikers confident but can Arsenal REALLY win Champions League?

Only the most optimistic of Arsenal fans will still believe that Arsene Wenger has a chance of guiding the team to a Premier League title this season, despite all the events of the weekend meaning that the Gunners cut the gap to Chelsea to 12 points. Even if the league leaders continue to slip up it will be Man City not us that overhaul them.
