On Tuesday night, Arsenal completed their routing of the Turkish giants, Fenerbahce in a 2-0 win at the Emirates thanks to a brace from th eman of the moment: Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman scored in both halves to send Fenerbahce to the Europa League. He continued his virtoso display from Fulham.
Aaron had scored one in Fenerbahce after assisting another there, but he made the Turks wonder after coming from no where to slot in the brace at the emirates. His first was “where did he come from” and the second was splendid: positioning his left feet to guide Gibbs cross home. In those days he would have trapped and near-shoot. Ramsey has now scored 4 goals in 4 appearances against Fenerbahce.
Oliver Giroud failed to score to maintain his young season record of scoring in every match he has played. Hope he scores a brace at the North London Derby. Podolski pulled his hamstring and should be out for 21 days according to Wenger. It is quite unfortunate for our German Machine that stroke a double against Fulham.
Yaya sanogo and Ryo Miyachi made their UEFA Champions League debut against Fenerbache coming in for Giroud and Walcott respectively. They made little impact in the game as Sanogo missed a chance.
The groups would be out this evening by 4:45pm and we have been seeded in pot one alongside Bayern, Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea and co. Let us wait and see who we would face.
