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.
