Olivier Giroud’s 14th minute powerful header from a santi Cazorla corner kick was all Arsenal needed to get a victory over relegation threatened Westbromich Albion.
The week before, the gunners had beaten Newcastle 3-0 and Everton’s 2-3 loss to Manchester City had guaranteed Champions league football for Arsenal.
Nevertheless, the gunners needed to keep the positive momentum at the Emirates till the FA cup final against Hull City.
The Emirates have been a fortress since after losing 3-1 to Aston Villa on matchday 1. The gunners have been unbeaten at home till date. Goonerdaily have summarized up other notable lessons from the victory.
In october, the gunners had gotten a late equalizer at the Hawthorns but Giroud’s 22nd goal of the season will ease a lot of tension on the frenchman. He has scored more than Rvp and all of Chelsea strikers together. In october, He had a hand in that Wilshere equalizer assisted by Rosicky to get a point from the then in-form baggies that had taken all 3pts from Moyes’ Red Devils
The gunners did their lap of honour to the Emirates faithful with their families. Beautiful wives and lovely kids. There was a huge roar for Sagna. It may have been his last Emirates game for Arsenal.
As for Chelsea, the woodwork and a mourinho-like defence denied the Blues from taking 3pts. The game ended 0-0 at the Bridge. Seems Sunderland have opened the flood gates.
In the La Liga, it seems the Madrid duo are having cold feet as to winning the title. Levante defeated Atletico Madrid 2-0 and Real missed on maximizing the effect of that slip as they needed Ronaldo to salvage a point against Valencia in their 2-2 draw.
The weekend in Nigeria was all about the Federation Cup State Finals. Pointmancarl has the results.
Finally, Loic Remy was seen at the Emirates watching the game and this is what Arsène Wenger had to say
@Arsenal Wenger: “I have just been informed Loic Remy was here, I honestly did not know. I hope he paid for his ticket!” #AFCvWBA
