It might not have quite come for the young Gunner but of all the Arsenal players on the pitch in our EFL cup defeat by Southampton it was Alex Iwobi who looked the most likely and showed the most desire to actually get something good to happen for Arsenal.
I suppose we should have known that it would not last, as every season Arsenal seem to be plagued with much more than our fair share of bad luck. It just felt for a while as though this time might be different, even though we had the defensive injury crisis at the start of the season with Gabriel and Per Mertesacker being ruled out before the competitive games even began.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that this latest injury blow is not the start of the club’s seemingly constant problems on that front, which has seen the Gunners hit by crisis after crisis that I, for one, believe has cost us at least one Premier League title.
Unless Arsene Wenger is indulging in a bit of kidology with his rival manager, I am surprised to see that the Frenchman, instead of keeping his cards close to his chest like he normally does, has revealed a lot about the Arsenal team that will start the EFL cup match at home to Reading, as the latest team news on the Arsenal website has reported.
If it had not been for the sixth Arsenal goal against Ludogorets last night then it would have been Alexis Sanchez who was my pick for the Man of the Match, as the Chilean was brilliant throughout and score the best goal of the night to set us on our way to victory, but I cannot give it to anyone but Mesut Ozil after his first professional hat-trick to cap a great game from the German.
The good news for Arsenal, and there is plenty of it right now after Pep Guardiola lost his first game in charge of Man City and with Manchester United continuing to struggle under Jose Mourinho, is how the Premier League table looks going into the second international break of the season.
Hey Arsenal fans, I would not be so quick to write off our France international centre forward Olivier Giroud if I was you, despite the fact that the big man is yet to start a single game for the Gunners this season. In fact I think Giroud could be set to lead the line when we travel to Burnley for the Premier League match on Sunday.
We do not yet know if the Arsenal and France international forward Olivier Giroud will be fit enough to start the Premier League clash with Chelsea this weekend, if you even believe that it is this mystery toe problem keeping him out of the side in the first place.
