Arsenal break on Oxford through Martinelli, he holds the ball and slides the pass through for Nketiah at the perfect time, allowing the striker to take a touch and calmly dink over the goalkeeper. I think in a VAR world, that goal would be chalked off for offside. Oh well.
The Premier League leaders struggled for long periods but eventually their quality showed through thanks to three fine assists and finishes. Oxford, frankly, never looked like scoring.
Man of the match Eddie Nketiah: “We came here and knew it wouldn’t be easy. The pitch is tough to play on. We had to up the level and we did that in the second half.
“They wanted it to be a rushed high tempo game – we had to slow it down.
“The second one was a nice little dink, so that one probably pleased me more.”
