Although the scoreline of 2-0 in Arsenal’s game against Everton today makes it look like an easy three points for the Gunners, the facts actually say that Everton had more chances on goal, especially in the first half but Petr Cech managed to keep the Toffees at bay.
Our two goals came in the space of three minutes from Lacazette and Aubameyang, and the Gabonese hitman believes that the only reason we were still at 0-0 before we took our chances. “I think 20 times maybe, Cech kept us in the game,” Aubameyang said after the match. “I think we are improving every day and feeling good and better, so when we win it is better for the team. It is going well and we are enjoying training at the training ground.”
Many Arsenal fans have been clamouring for Leno to be first choice for us, but Cech has proved yet again that he is still one of the best around. And he was very humble afterwards and says he is only doing his job for the team. He said: “Everton created a lot of chances in the first half and we had to stick together and wait for our opportunity to score which made the difference. I’m delighted with the performance and the clean sheet. I had a lot to do today and I had to help the team stay in the game, and as an experienced player, you have to do your part.”
Arsenal finally came good in the second half (why is that now normal?) and we put the game to bed, but Everton still kept plugging away at Cech’s goal. How strange is it that our goalkeeper is the Man Of The Match in an easy win?
