While the Christian faithfuls mark the resurrection of the Saviour of the world in this Easter period, followers of Arsenal FC smiled on Saturday evening as one of their mediocre players rose from the dead and put the gunners up against Reading FC. While the chickens were having their last meal prior to their slaughter, the Royals were outplayed at the emirates.
Gervinho tucked in from close range from Cazorla before providing for Cazorla and Giroud in the second half. Gervinho has been slaughtered by all and sundry for his lack-lustre and chance squandering displays most notable the Bradford infamous miss. He showed some class to muster a man of the match performance against Reading FC.
The standing ovation from the emirates could be heard over miles in Hades and in space as gervinho was subbed out for the Ox. That display may have wiped out the boos he had received over his mediocre display that had relegated to the bench and even missing the team in most cases.
Fabianski finally conceded a goal after a cross was turned in by Robson-Kanu with Monreal hurting himself after colliding with the post. The goal came seconds after Giroud converted Gervinho’s pass. Arteta made it 4-1 from the spot after the racing ox was brought down in the area.
Ramsey, Rosicky and Podolski had chances to add more goals but the shrill of the whistle ended Reading’s misery. Despite not having Diaby, Wilshere and Walcot, no thanks to Injury FC, I always expected Arsenal to win. When last did we play a draw against the Royals?
I must give kudos to Koscienly who bossed the back as usual. The minister of defence marshalled the rear with superb challenges. Arteta out-passed the royals with over 100 accurate passes. Rosicky was mozart-y and Cazorla is a magician.
Swansea couldn’t put a spanner in Tottenham’s works as spurs grabbed 3 points in Wales with a 2-1 win. Everton pipped Stoke 1-0 and Liverpool pegged Aston Villa 2-1 to add gasoline to the top 4 chase. The gunners would ake solace in Chelsea’s 2-1 lose to Southampton.
Lets keep winning our games and the Champions League would be certain. Happy Easter to you: reflect on your lives and ascertain your readiness for the Lord’s day, the Last day.
