Last week, it was like the tale of two cities, Yin and Yang, Ebony and Ivory or Alpha and Beta for the Arsenal. The performances from the team were so contrasting in the last two matches.
Firstly, the Europa match against Rapid. We were nonsense in the first half. It seemed like a step backward, and akin to Arsenal during Unai’s reign. Leno was surprisingly bizarre in that match too! But we redeemed in the second half, with strategic substitutes, to win the match 2-1. Next was the game against the sly Foxes. The first half was brilliant with the team playing all over the pitch, had 12 attempts at goals but just could not get the desired finishing. Unexpectedly, the team spiralled downhill in the second half. The foxes emulate their performances against Man City with the Arsenal and scored the match-winning goal through Vardy. The loss placed us in the eleventh position after 6 matches. What is happening??
This week, Arsenal hosts an Irish side, Dundalk FC, on Friday, 30 October 2020 at 4 a.m. for the Europa League group stage and then travels to Old Trafford for a Premier League match on 2 November 2020 at 12.30 a.m. A better week ahead for us Gooners!
