Arsenal answered their critics with win against Nottingham Forest says journalist

Arsenal delivered an emphatic response to their recent poor run of form as they beat Nottingham Forest 5-0 in the Premier League.

They had not scored more than one goal in a game in the past three matches and lost the fixture before the Forest match.

It seemed they were on a downward spiral, but they solidly responded to critics with the win against the league’s new boys.

Arsenal’s correspondent for Goal, Charles Watts, responded to their performance after the game and said they delivered the best response to people who started doubting them.

He tweeted:

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal needed that 5-0 win to give confidence to their fans and help themselves get off their bad run of form.

It will prepare them mentally for their next fixtures and it would be interesting to see how it goes.

Mikel Arteta would be delighted to know his players are not tired, as some fans had suggested. Now they must build on this performance by earning more wins.

If we can keep winning and stay at the top of the Premier League table by the World Cup break, then we will be confident about winning the league title.

  1. Really impressed, and pleasantly surprised, by the performance and the appetite for goals in the second half.

  2. I’ll just say the same as before – there’s more than one kind of weariness. The refereeing in the games were seemed under par was atrocious.

    When you’re getting wrestled all the time and you’re worried that you’re going to get hacked down and possibly injured every tme you have the ball… that’s wearing a different way from just playing too much.

    Against Forest the ref let the game flow and look at the difference – pre-season / early season Arsenal re-emerged.

    One day, someone will decide what the rules of the game actually are and get them enforced properly and consistently.

  3. The referee along the Nottingham butchers to hack Saka’s, Jesus’s and Martinelli’s legs with impunity! Thats the price Arsenal will have to pay from ousting the FA’s favourite from the top!
