The results from Arsenal last week was #sweet. Not bitter this time. And the team is keeping their chances alive in the Europa League.
I mentioned last week that 1 away goal against Benfica could be vital. And when they were leading 2-1, my heart just sunk, and I feared the worst. But the lads just gave their all and when KT3 scored to make it 2-2, I jumped for joy. Alas, Auba scored the winning goal and there was no turning back for Arsenal. On to the round of 16. In my heart, I was hoping to play Villarreal, but we got Olympiacos instead. Next time perhaps.
And the win against Leicester was a big surprise given Arsenal’s starting-11. It looked like Arteta’s B-team. They started slow, at the start of the game, and it looked like Leicester was expected to beat Arsenal once again but no, it did not materialise. The B-team gave an A-star performance, to beat the foxes 3-1 away. And after 26 matches, Arsenal lies in the 10th position.
The team has a week to prepare for the next match against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday 6 March 2021 for another early kick-off at 8.30 pm. In the last 10 games against Burnley, Arsenal won 8 times, draw 1 and lost 1. The draw was during last season and the loss was at the Emirates in December last year. Let’s hope the winning run continues once again COYG!!
