“It could have been 6-0” Analyst praises ruthless Arsenal

Arsenal marked their return to the Champions League in impressive fashion last night, securing a commanding 4-0 victory against PSV and garnering praise for their performance.

PSV had posed a significant challenge for the Gunners in the Europa League group stage last season. However, in the recent match, they struggled to trouble Mikel Arteta’s team, and Arsenal emerged as clear winners.

The Gunners’ display showcased substantial improvement compared to the previous season, establishing them as a formidable presence in the Champions League this term.

Following the victory, Dutch football analyst René van der Gijp lauded Arsenal for their ruthless performance in the fixture, acknowledging their impressive return to the competition.

He said, as quoted by Voetbal Zone:

“It could have been 6-0 after half an hour. They were completely pushed from pillar to post. We think Giménez is a great striker.

“But the bad thing is that Gabriel Jesus is three times better. He is fast, agile and strong. You don’t experience that. Here you play against Michiel Kramer, he can’t do anything. He would play in the fourth division in England.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We worked hard to earn a return to the Champions League and have to make the most of being in the competition.

That start proves the boys are aware that the competition requires more effort and we expect them to maintain or improve their current level of performance.

  2. I actually think that we were not that great. I only saw the first half, but it seemed PSV easily broke our pressure and got into dangerous areas almost every time. We scored a lot because PSV attacked with a lot of players, living us much space. They were brilliant in breaking our pressure but our defenders were too good for them. All in all they exposed us tactically but did not have the quality to capitalise on that.

    1. idk man, that doesn’t sound like the game i watched at all. there was absolutely nothing about PSV that was brilliant, especially not in breaking arsenals pressure. i also struggle to se where they exposed us tactically

  3. Aren’t you contradicting yourself oxithebox! You say we weren’t great and then you end up with our defenders were too good for them. What’s your point exactly?

  4. I think OxInTheBox is referring to the two left sided PSV players who gave White a bit of a time earlier on, until he got to grips with them.
