How was your week? I hope it pan out well for you. The last match against Palace saw some changes made to the side. Tierney was missing with a calf injury. He was missed very much on the left flank and it was not easy for Ainsley to emulate his performance. Partey was also featured in that game. Given his performance, he still requires more match time to be at optimal level. But overall, the team did well. They huff and puff and eventually earned a draw. At this point, Arsenal is unbeaten in five games, without conceding any goals. That is a good start to 2021.
I did predict during the early start of the season that the current EPL is full of topsy-turvy drama. Man United is now top of the league. We have seen Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs, Leicester, Southampton at the top. It’ll be a long season ahead, more games to play, more drama and who knows, if all goes well, we might be at the top four. #fingerscrossed.
Ozil’s saga with the Club has ended with his contract termination. Arsenal now saves £350k a week. We wish him all the best, joining Podolski in the Turkish league. Honestly, I do miss his sublime assists and goals for Arsenal. I do hope the money can be utilised to buy 1-2 players to boost the team.
Another 4 am game on Tuesday, 19 January 2021 against Newcastle at the Emirates. Following that, it is back to defending the FA Cup on Saturday, 23 January 2021 at 8.15 pm. We play either Southampton or Shrewsbury, who will play this coming Wednesday. My mind says the Saints but my heart says we play Shrewsbury. Come on Arsenal!
