What kind of draw would you like?
Last weekend, Arsenal needed a flick from Olivier Giroud to earn a draw at Saint Mary’s. Charlie Austin had given Southampton an early lead in the 2nd minute before the Gunners laboured to share the spoils.
Like against Manchester United, Arsenal started slow and gave away a goal that they could have done better. It took them till the introduction of Giroud to get an equalizer. They could have been punished by counter-attacks. The Gunners had chances to get the equalizer earlier but were toothless in front of the goal even when they had three men against one defender at the Southampton goal.
The Gunners failed to capitalize on the dropped points above them. City were 2-1 winners of Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton shared the spoils at the Merseyside Derby. Chelsea were stunned by Westham but Spurs went haywire against Stoke. Did you see Lukaku’s assists for Manchester City? Have you heard of the PizzaGate 2.0? Mourinho surely wasn’t happy.
UEFA Champions League Draw
Arsenal have been grouped to play Bayern Munich in the knock out stage of the Champions League.
Draws were made today by noon and the biggest fixture is Real Madrid vs PSG. It is Ronaldo vs Neymar. The other bigger fixture is the love affair between Chelsea and Barcelona. Will Messi finally get a goal against the Blues? They meet again. See full draw below.
UEFA Europa League Draw
Arsenal will play Ostersunds FK in the knock out phase of the Europa League. The Swedish club didn’t exist as at when Arsene Wenger joined Arsenal. This should be an easy tie for the Gunners. They are unbeaten at home in Europe though.
