“Even before the sending off,” Ben Jacobs argues the red card made no difference

CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs argues that Arsenal was still on top of their game against Tottenham even when both teams had 11 men on the pitch.

Arsenal beat the Lilywhites 3-1 this afternoon, and one of the turning points in the game was the sending off of Emerson Royal.

Spurs would feel they could have gotten at least a point from the fixture if they didn’t play the closing stages a man down.

However, Jacobs followed the game and insists Arsenal was on top even before the Lilywhites went a man down.

He tweeted:

“Arsenal brilliant again and go four clear at the top. Dominated Spurs, even before the sending off. Brilliant finishes from Partey and Xhaka and Jesus with his first NLD goal.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We were on top of this game from the moment the referee blew the whistle for kick-off.

Spurs should feel lucky they were awarded a soft penalty which drew the game level.

At the moment, we are better than them because we are further ahead in our rebuild than they are.

But there are many more games left to play, and we must not get carried away by this win, instead, it should motivate us to go for more.

  1. We have Shaka they don’t. Where is the sell Shaka Sack Arteta brigade? They are now the ones to apologise or leave.

    1. Im here with my full chest.. infact its genius not to sell him, Just a matter of changing his role, getting zinchenko did the trick. Who am i apologizing to? You?
      Tough luck bro

    2. There’s no need to persecute. They just wanted the best for Arsenal and were not sure how much Mikel Arteta (MA) could transform team, so easy guys.

  2. We dominated the game and should have put match to bed before half time. We too much overplayed the ball. Ball possession is good but didn’t win match against big teams in some cases.

  3. So the gaffer has won the mind games, the match and also the bragging rights for Arsenal.

    Jurgen Klopp will take note and start his own mind games.

  4. Great game against Spurs. Our players were ready and showed commitment. Pray they continue like this.

  5. We need to beat our opponents i mean those top clubs to prove that we can compete for the tittle so Liverpool Man city and Chelsea i wish we get points put of them

    1. By Injury free, i believe u mean Partey??? Watching him olay nowadays is like watching a Horror-Thriller movie
