That was definitely one of the strangest Arsenal games I have ever seen. We started with no recognized centre-forward on the pitch, but two on the substitutes bench and Alexis Sanchez as our nominal hitman. This was obviously suicide tactics and our weaknesses were immediately exposed as Edison Cavani put us behind in the first minute of the game.
Luckily he lost his scoring boots as we could have been 3 or 4 nil down by half time, but our lucky force was great at the time. The Gunners seemed to come alive in the second half, but if it hadn’t been for David Ospina playing a blinder we could have conceded another few before Wenger did his usual subs between the 60th and 70th minute. Do not ask how we managed to get the equaliser but let’s just be happy we did and pray that our luck continues for the rest of the season….
I think I would rather have started with a proper team and played a little more impressively though!
