Alright, alright, alright, let’s not beat around the bush and just get to the important stuff.
Arsenal won 2 nil on the day. Alexis Sanchez with the opener (60th), also I might add, a 100+ million dollar opener (Xhaka and Ozil involved in the build up). Giroud then closed the game out in the 83rd with a powerful header, which surely will secure him now a starting spot against Stoke and lead to our inevitable loss over the weekend. Kappaaaa.
Alexis, who scored his 20th league goal of the season has been involved (assists + goals) in 70 goals out of his first 100 matches, with only Henry and Bergkamp ahead of him.
Furthermore this result now puts a bit of pressure on Liverpool as we’re now 4 points behind with a game at hand of the 4th place spot. This weekends match against Stoke is a bit of a be-all-end-all moment for us and our race for fourth.
