I am not trying to say that the Arsenal defence was not an issue as the Gunners scraped over the line to win the first game of the new Premier League season, because it most certainly was. Normally when a team scores three against you it will lead to a defeat and very seldom all three points, especially when the opposition is known for being frugal at the back as Leicester City are.
However, I do not think we Arsenal fans should let it bother us too much for a number of reasons. Firstly I very much doubt that we will see a back three of Holding, Monreal and Kolasinac together very often and maybe not in the Premier League for the rest of the season. It was a makeshift back line forced upon Arsene Wenger due to the unavailability of Mertesacker, Koscielny and Mustafi.
Also I reckon that the fact it was a cobbled together defence and the pressure was on them, not jst with the home crowd expecting us to win but after Okazaki cancelled out the opener so quickly, meant they struggled more than normal and will improve as the season goes on.
All three have proved themselves good players so let’s not be too hard on them eh? And we won! The fact that Arsenal have shown the fight needed to come back from adversity as well as the ability going forward to score four goals against one of the most organised defences in England is very encouraging for the season ahead.
Come on Gooners, look at the positives!!
