I could not watch yesterday’s game live as I was doing an extra long shift at work. From the extended highlights I watched, it looks like Arsenal got back to very useful habit of converting reasonable amount of chances created and played with freedom and flair we all know our team can. Maybe I should do more overtime at work on Saturdays.
Theo Walcott looked like he is really getting the grips of being the main striker and improving steadily at playing that position. This gives us an option of choosing 3 very different type strikers to choose from when Welbeck is fit. Alexis and Ozil is forming an understanding that would scare any team in Europe and with Santi Cazorla back to his best, pulling strings behind them, we are starting to look like a team which can challenge for top honors this season and beyond. Since making his debut in August 2012 Cazorla has made more assists than any other league player (32).
We also have a top class keeper long last, a left back who is fast becoming one of the best in the league, a very decent trio of center backs and a very impressive young right back who is improving with each game.
All we need now is to have a bit of luck with injuries and avoid the likes of Mike Dean refereeing our games to mount a serious challenge for the league.
