Let’s celebrate a good Arsenal win after such a long drought.
There was definitely some negatives to take from last nights win over West Ham but what did anyone expect? When any club goes on a long winless streak and let’s be honest, with some awful performances. It was never going to happen that the first win after such a run was going to be perfect.
The win last night was purely about getting three points on the board, stopping the rot and to begin the rebuilding of confidence. All three objectives were achieved.
On top of that, we saw the emergence of Nicholas Pepe as a top-quality player, something we have all been waiting for.
David Luiz was dropped, finally and young Gabriel Martinelli laid down a marker and not just to future opponents but also to Alexandre Lacazette.
Those three points are also invaluable, just yesterday I wrote an article about what could happen if we did not beat West Ham. We were talking relegation such was the mental and emotional turmoil us fans were in. That feeling has now been abated.
Some will say it was only West Ham, they are right, the very same West Ham that went to Stamford Bridge and defeated Chelsea.
This was a good result, yes, the performance has to be analysed and I will be putting up articles about that but for now, let’s enjoy the moment because they have been too rare this season for Arsenal football club.
