During Arsenal’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, the Gunners have shown glimpses of their best football.
A stunning build-up, involving most members of the playing squad has been topped off by wide attacker Nicolas Pepe. Peep peep! Spurs are booed off after a miserable performance at the White Hart Lane Stadium. Steven Bergwijn scored a spectacular early goal, but Villa, inspired by the returning Jack Grealish and the relentless John McGinn, calmly took control of the game. Sergio Reguilon’s farcical own goal brought them level and then Ollie Watkins took advantage of another Reguilon mistake.
That is the view of former Gunners midfielder Freddie Ljungberg who has suggested that some of the club’s big players could question their futures this summer after a disappointing campaign.
Arsenal went into Wednesday evening’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace sitting 10th in the table following Leeds United’s 2-0 win over Southampton 24 hours earlier.
Arsenal There’s a bit of needle in this game. There was the Schlupp foul, a kick off the ball by Ward on Tierney (not enough for a red card) and a few other robust challenges. Tierney is being heartily booed, having made a meal of the aforementioned Ward kick.
“Rob, I’ll level with you, I’m nervous,” weeps Liverpool fan Ian Copestake. “I’m fully expecting an evening of swearing at the brilliance of Burnley before joining Matt Dony on some street corner to throw stuff.”
Full-back Kieran Tierney played a huge part in the team’s build-up, helping to set up Bukayo Saka, before the young Englishman returned the favour down the left flank.
Arsenal’s goal now sees them move up to ninth in the table, two points behind Everton and West Ham, who are both on 59-points.
