Arsenal carried on their scintillating form today with an excellent 6-0 win over Lyon (by the way, do you like the title? Think about it….) and they are building a good head of confidence leading up to the massive Community Shield game against Chelsea.
The best thing for me is that there were six different goalscorers – and it could not have done Olivier Giroud’s confidence any harm by scoring the first, and the other five were added by ALL our starters that were not defenders. It was a promising game from young Iwobi and it surprised me to see Mikel Arteta take the field. In fact I can’t see anything but good news coming out of todays performance…
But back to the title.. I am saying that Arsenal are on form. Three pre-season games have so far produced 13 goals but if you also include our last League game from last season and the Cup Final, we have a massive 21 goals from our last five games. That is phenomenal form no matter how you try to disect it.
We go on to face Wolfsburg tomorrow and we still have a very fresh team to start, with Cech, Gabriel, Chambers, Monreal and Bellerin staying on the bench today and I am sure they are itching to get some time on the pitch tomorrow. Wilshere willcertainly start tomorrow after being left out of the squad, while Walcott, Arteta, Akpom and Cazorla all played less than 30 minutes today so will not be tired either. I am looking forward to yet another massive win to get Mourinho and Chelsea quaking in their boots ahead of next weeks game…..
Onwards and upwards!
