Ben White wants the fans to decide if he meant his second goal

Ben White scored a brace against Chelsea yesterday, and the second strike feels like a rather fortunate goal.

The defender received a pass on the wing and seemed to square it for a teammate.

However, the ball flew into the Chelsea net, catching their goalkeeper and most fans by surprise.

Supporters have been debating if he meant that strike, and when he was asked if he meant it, the defender said on the BBC:

“I don’t know. I’ll let everyone else decide!”

Adding: “We know we can score goals and today it was a quick game and it was important to put the ball away when we had the chance.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

White’s second goal looks more like a lucky strike, and it just shows how good everything went for us in that game.

The players did brilliantly and as the saying goes; fortune favours the bold, which could have been a reason everything went well for us.

We have other tough fixtures ahead including matches against Manchester United and Tottenham, so we need to get back to preparing for those games.

If we win those two games, the pressure on Man City and Liverpool will be immense.

  1. I think anyone who has played the game knows that Ben was trying a first time cross but who cares it went in anyway.

  2. He didn’t mean it, just say it. Probably our most improved player. He was never a RB. But can operate as one now.

  3. It was an uncompleted move, although had the ball in the back of the net. It’s now his, no choice but claim it. lol

  4. Ben White made a beautiful and indeed a surprise score. I’m happy for him ……

    Was it supposed to be a cross instead? That’s being a little petty and a little inconsenquential. Just happy that our players are becoming more and more unpredictable to our opponents (and their own fans too).

    That’s quite a good thing for us. Shows our team is becoming more and more mature by the day
