Lacazette, Ozil and Sanchez show glimpses of what could be. by Konstantin
Arsenal won an away game! It’s hard to believe that this was the first game where we started Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette in the same game! That’s Arsene Wenger for you! We first kept two players who are obviously going to leave and then we don’t play them, because they wanna leave.
We also decided to drop our top striker for some games, but the moment all 3 play we score 5 goals. It puts an interesting question now. Do we sell in January? If those 3 play like that I don’t see how we can allow to let them leave. See the front 3 against Watford compared to what we played at Merseyside.
We had players asking questions. Why did we rest Ramsey and Sanchez vs Watford? Arsene has so badly mismanaged numerous players during his Arsenal reign and Ozil’s performance yesterday proves this. We had Lacazette and Sanchez asking questions of their defence which allowed Ozil to take time on the ball and find players willing to make a run.
But in reality, this was only Everton. It’s understandable why they are bottom 3 and Koeman is really facing the sack sooner rather than later. I don’t think this game means we’ve turned a corner. If I see 4 points or more out of the City and Spurs back to back games then I’ll accept any sort of argument that we might turn a corner.
We’ve already lost 3 games so if we want to make the top 4, we need to start taking more points away and points against the other contenders. We conceded another 2 sloppy goals. I am sorry but Xhaka simply must be dropped for the number of mistakes he’s made this year.
Competition for the top 4 is as big as it has ever been. We still have a long a way to go to bring enough confidence that we will return to Europe’s elite.
