Happily admit I wasn’t confident before kick off, we were on the back of 2 poor results and seemed to lose a bit of grit about our performances and Arsenal were in very good form.
But we blew them away in that second half. We were the better team in the first half too but it was after the break that we really took full control. We could and should have scored more but that’s the only negative I can think of really. Fab and Thiago again worked so well together and it gave Ox the freedom he needed.
After West Ham, there were several players like Alisson, Ox, Fab, Jota etc who really needed to make amends for what was borderline a pathetic performance last time out and they certainly did that. A few took a bit longer than others to really come alive in this game but on the whole, it’s very hard to pick fault with anyone today.
Well in Reds, let’s hope this is a corner turned and we can now see an end to these injuries and get a nice winning run going to catch the Chavs.
On a side note, it seemed Ramsdale was getting far too overconfident with the saves he was making, good to see that was soon put a stop to and then Jota sent him back to Bournemouth.
