Four sweet goals, four goal scorers and Arsenal moved to the 2nd spot and stayed there thanks to Crystal Palace’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City.
I almost missed a wedding on Saturday while watching Kolo Toure turned from east to west by Arsenal’s frontmen. Sterling auditioned at the Emirates but failed to convert when giving the opportunity.
I have watched the goals over and over again. Each time producing goose bumps on my skin. Bellerin scoring with his left foot, Ozil curling into the corner, Sanchez’s blazer and Giroud’s creme de la cremè. Clean sweet passes with Coquelin doing his normal duties without breaking sweat.
Cazorla would curse the upright and Ospina would rue the penalty conceded by Bellerin that dented his clean sheet. Ramsey worked his socks off and had to be replaced. Koscielny gave way for Gabriel no-joy. It was like a revenge to last season’s disaster at Anfield.
Bellerin would surely be grateful to have escaped a second booking but the gunners will thank goodness that Sterling didn’t have positional instincts of Inzaghi or the sliding boots of Bendtner.
3 points and Chelsea is 7pts away. Can we dare to dream? A gracious winning streak, can we continue till GW39? A game at a time will be enough especially seeing that Sagna had carried our 4th burden to City. Oooh, how he loved Arsenal.
Last weekend had a number of beautiful goals. Rooney had a nice one but Charlie Adam’s 65 yards goal stands out for me. Behold my best pix of the year:
Begovic gifted Chelsea all 3 points in a game that Costa played for as many minutes it will take for a cookie to get soft in water.
In case you don’t know: Diaby is playing for a contract. The hustle is real. And Szczesny is being useful with the cameras. Poor Szczesny.
It was a sad weekend for Nigeria but i will leave that for the next post.
