The only complaint that I can have with the Arsenal performance today was that we did not score more goals. I have no problems at all with the way we eased off and sat back after storming into a three goal lead against Manchester United.
What a start though. Electric stuff from the attacking players of Arsenal and United just could not deal with the crisp incisive passing of Ozil, Cazorla and Ramsey and the pace and movement of Alexis and Walcott. Boom, boom, boom and the Gunners were three goals up after only 20 minutes.
A brilliant improvised Alexcis finish from Ozil’s cut back was quickly followed by a well taken first goal of the season from the German and he also provided the assist for Alexis to score his second and our third with a scorching long range strike.
United looked lost and the game was over. Well it was after we then took stock and became more solid and compact and with Cech making a few key saves, Arsenal managed to stop the visitors getting a goal back and gaining impetus. That was a perfect way to hit back after the Chsampions League nightmare and we head into the international break in second and buzzing. COYFG
