As much as it was nice to see Arsenal dominate Tottenham in the latest North London derby, we did not manage to carry on from last season and get the win we deserved. And if you are looking for a reason why Arsenal failed to convert their possession into points maybe the first thing you would look at is the decision to leave the best player for Arsenal this season so far on the bench.
If Alexis Sanchez had been on from the start Arsenal could easily have taken advantage of Tottenham’s shaky start. To be fair to Wenger, he must have expected the Spuds to be a lot tougher opposition from kick off but they were awful and we just didn’t have the quality on the pitch to make them pay.
At the end of the day, a draw in the NLD is OK but is could have and should have been so much better. So is this further evidence or ammunition to the people who want to fire shots at Arsene Wenger. It certainly won’t help his cause and you have to wonder why he left the Chilean International striker on the bench for perhaps the most important home game of the season.
What do you think Gunners ?
