Arsenal miss golden chance to win at Spurs with the help of the ref. by Konstantin Mitov
Well boys and girls, I’m so disappointed we didn’t win. We played well I thought. Our tactic was solid, we defended well, but ultimately a mistake by the ref gifted them a goal, which was practically the only shot on target they had in the second half.
Alexander Lacazette missed a golden chance to put us 2 up and then the ref trying to make up for his mistake gifted us a penalty which Auba missed. The two players who’ve been carrying us through so much of the season, now failed us as three points would’ve been massive.
The ref didn’t fail to cap of his miserable performance by sending off Torreira when earlier Rose lunged with the boots forward into the chest of Leno and got only a yellow.
Speaking of Leno, how good was he? That double save was excellent. And the way he stood up after Rose hit him was impressive. I thought our defending apart from Mustafi was excellent overall.
Not winning this game really hurts, given the way it played out, but there is no time to feel sorry for ourselves. It’s time to prepare for a Man Utd side coming with a great away record and they’ll easily dispatch Southampton at home so it’s 99 percent certain they will come with a one point lead.
If we mange to win that, I’ll be extremely happy. They have to play Chelsea and Man City yet while our run is favorable, not that we do that great away. We shouldn’t moan though. We have an excellent chance to finish in the top 4 and we should focus on what’s lying ahead.
We need to take the positives and there are a lot lately. It was interesting how Emery put Ozil on. Does he start against United at home? Ramsey had a run a kilometer more than any other Arsenal player when he was subbed. Sublime. A true warrior. I love Aaron and he deserved to win this game, as he showed those sorry white chickens, Wembley is his ground, our ground. We’ve won more trophies there than Tottenham has in how many years now?
Let’s pick it up and focus on United. A win against them will give us such a boost for the run in for the 3rd and 4th spot, because remember after United we’re done with the top 6 and the rest are not. And the fact that Chelsea play United, means if we win and that’s a huge IF, everything will be in our own hands.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the week and have a fantastic week ahead of you!
