Everton 1-4 Arsenal – Arsenal Jump Above Manchester United To The Top Of The Table

By Bilal Zaidi

1-0 at half time…1-4 at the end of it. Perhaps the scoreline paints a picture that is slightly misleading but at the same time shows the “mental strength” that Wenger keeps talking about.

Eduardo showed his killer instincts with two goals, Adebayor came on to score from a Yobo and Howard miscommunication and Rosicky wrapped things up after good work from Adebayor and Diaby in the dying moments of the game.

In between all that, Bendtner was sent off for two yellow cards and Arteta was given a straight red for an elbow in the face of Fabregas.

A great second half performance to make up for the dull first from Arsenal. 3 of the goals of the 4 came from “long balls” which is not like us but it proved a good option in the end. A one match ban for Bendtner now it seems but that shouldn’t affect us much since Adebayor was being given a rest today.

A great result which see’s us leapfrog United to the top of the table as Upson’s 82nd minute goal gave West Ham a 2-1 victory over last year’s champions.

Now we have to prepare for our next match at home to West Ham who will be flying high after their victory over Manchester United today. More on that later on. Until then, good day.

    West Ham won’t be flying high enough. Unexpectedly taking 3 points off United will ease their desire to take 3 from the Arsenal. What matters more is how “tired” our midfielders are. Besides, Eduardo looks tricky. Play him again in a 4-4-2!

    no worries since Eduardo proved his worth and should also be given another chance against West Ham, Hleb to be given a rest and with Flamini suspended may mean a chance for the whining baby, Diarra!

    C’mon! Look who’s first!!!!!!
    I think a good option for facing West Ham would be:

    Almunia
    Sagna-Toure-Gallas-Clichy
    Hleb-Fabregas-Denilson-Rosicky
    Eduardo-Adebayor

    Anyone agree?

    suspensions take a week to come into force so Flam missed Burnley. that will just piss Diarra off even more!

    great game. not in terms of flowing passing football but in terms of the qualities that were on show that other people often accuse us of lacking. these are the sorts of fixtures and matches that champions dig out. in the end the scoreline was flattering but even so I thought we were professional definitely deserved the 3 points.

    I agree what a few are saying about Eduardo given another chance against West Ham. Just as Flamini has grown this season through an extended run in the first team, I think Eduardo needed these early months to “settle in” as people love to say…and now maybe he can step up his game with an extended run in the team. It is clear to see his quality in front of goal, both in the carling cup, in the champions league and now today in the premiership. His second goal was pure class even though there were suspisions of hand ball. I will write a piece on Eduardo soon, check back for more.
