Arsenal has finally has an anchorman, check how Arsenal star tackled Declan Rice.
For me it’s not the Saka Goal, it’s the tackle by Thomas Partey to Declan Rice. Arsenal finally has an anchorman after Patrick Vieira.
We picked up our Premier League season right where we left off in November, with a win, thanks to a thrilling comeback in the second half.
Even though Said Benrahma scored a penalty in the first half to put us behind, we deserved the three points.
But we soon got three goals after halftime for being aggressive and positive.
First, Bukayo Saka scored a good goal when he was alone in the box. Then, Gabriel Martinelli scored at the near post.
But Eddie Nketiah’s great turn and finish to make it 3-1 was the best of the goals.
The win puts us seven points ahead of Manchester City before they play on Wednesday.
We hadn’t played in the Premier League for 44 days, which was a first for the middle of the season. When we finally did, we were trying to strengthen our hold on first place.
Seven of the players in Mikel Arteta’s starting lineup had been at the World Cup in Qatar, including France’s William Saliba, who was there just eight days after the final.
But it was clear that people were thinking about home again when we left for West Ham early.
Bukayo Saka, one of the stars of the World Cup, put the ball in the goal in the first five minutes, but it was called offside.
