If only we hadn’t been so complacent against the smaller teams…


Arsenalfan94

History repeating itself :,). I just wanna make the pain go away.


JasonKoscielny821

This is the best game of the season so far!


Get2dachoppaaaaah

Crackin result! #COYG #ohhhhtobeagooner


sahirkurji

How Cedric doesn’t find the ball across to gabi is beyond me..


sairay_c

He is a shitty player


m2sempre

Arsenal of the last four games; wouldn’t want it any other way #COYG


betterthanevar

For two players I normally slag off, I saw them playing at their level today and wish to give props to Xhaka for keeping his head and playing without fear and to Saka for playing mean. Coverboy needed the remember how he got there. Good to see some pride from him.


joey_zasa82

how good was that Xhaka nutmeg!


betterthanevar

why aren't we memeing the fuck out of that! It was classic Xhaka, but it worked brilliantly! I remember thinking, "holy fuck, if we score here, that's some God tier shi---HOLY FUCK!!!"


betterthanevar

I swear, if they make UCL, I'm buying his shirt


pureeyes

Was it two nutmegs before he passed it up? He opened up the whole pitch with that move and pass


Anthnytdwg

I realize now the key to us winning is me not requesting off work to watch the match. I will be requesting overtime for the rest of the season.


pureeyes

This was the one game I hadn't watched in the last 4... I can't catch the Ars-Utd game either


Sole_Patrol

That’s usually my story.


imsickfuck

Tavares is such a weird player. Like he does silly mistakes and then puts in a really good shift. Good in offense but bad in defense


sairay_c

But he mis cue a shot Infront of goal into side net


jubbing

I swear we should convert him to a Winger or something because he's be great at that. Super Saiyan to get up the pitch, Super Slow to get back to defend.


mohicansgonnagetya

Almost like he is a 22 year old playing for a big club in his first year. I swear people here write him off like he is 29.


benjamiahthebullfrog

I swear, people here write off the god damn moon and sun after a bad spell. It’s completely shit to be around. Maybe I’m just old now at 35, but good lord. Celebrate the goods.


FoxOntheRun99

His tracking of runs and defence needs a lot to be desired but he gave it his all. He's got an engine on him.


smallso1197

He’s also 22. Hoping he can learn from Tierney Edit: Which is crazy considering Tierney is what, 23? What a wild team


Shandow14

For real. Brilliant at crossing, shit with short passes. Brilliant at getting past players, then just runs into a player. Enigma.


ValeoAnt

Brilliant at crossing? Are we watching the same player? So often he gets into good positions then gets caught between shooting and crossing. He's very Kola like to me.


jman500069

Reminds me of a taller more powerful Walcott


Melo_the_cutie

There’s room for improvement, COYG


Maxbab124

We have the best Mohamed in the league


douglad17

They can keep their Egyptian King - we’ve got the Pharaoh 😍


theipd

Well this was a pleasant surprise. Game on!!!!


geodukemon

Losing to Southampton, Brighton, and Crystal Palace then pulling out a win against Chelsea is perhaps the most Arsenal thing ever


jubbing

Scoring 4, when you couldn't even score 4 in your previous 5 matches is definitely the most Arsenal thing. Then, when we're starting to believe again, they'll throw it against an underperforming United.


elmoismywaifu

The last 5 matches before this we scored two, 0 vs Liverpool 1 vs AV 0 vs CP 0 vs Southampton 1 vs Brighton And we double that against "the best keeper itw" England is red, London is red. What a week for big clubs scoring 4 on small clubs


FoxOntheRun99

Dropping 9 points and gaining your only 3 at Chelsea's backyard is not what I call a relaxing month. Still, I always enjoy a big win at our rivals. What a weird game.


thekingofkrabs

Makes this win hard to enjoy. If we even got just 5 points we'd be level on points with Chelsea


metallica_86

Wonder why we played Sambi ahead of El Neny last few weeks


FoxOntheRun99

Sambi who is still raw but I think he's more of a progressive passer of the ball then Elneny, and we need that since Partey is injured and Xhaka was needed at LB. Though today, after 3 losses, the team needed shaking up to stem the rot.


tunken

Because Arteta wanted Sambi as Partey direct replacement in 433 system, bad idea. Single pivot is rare, even Rodri needs 2 seasons to become a starter.


ConfessionsOverGin

Agreed, tossing a kid into a single pivot role was trial by fire. I think Elneny is very limited, but he’s at least going to commit very few mistakes and his recycling of the ball helps us keep the tempo of the game and manage them better. With creative players like Odegaard, Saka, and ESR, I’ll take a safe player who helps manage the game


MattJFarrell

And I think the assumption is that El Neny is leaving this summer, and they want to invest time and effort in Sambi since he's got a longer future with the club. But I've always liked El Neny, I think we should hold on to him.


datoo_2

I always thought he was better than Xhaka as well


smallso1197

Two different players. El Neny is the safer player, which I think lends to him being “better” in this team considering the creative players ahead of him. Xhaka is a really great player but his lapse in judgment every 3 games that costs us a goal or a red card really hurts us a lot. I feel like both are “net zero” players - El Neny doesn’t add much, while Xhaka adds a ton but also taketh away a ton


datoo_2

Elneny is much better at long balls, keeping movement flowing. Plus, just as you mentioned, he doesn’t see red like Xhaka, who has cost us many games previously due to his poor decision making and aggression.


UnderstandingFine189

Me too


drlobster4

I want to personally take kroenkes money and give nketiah a grand contract


[deleted]

Yeah, £1000 contract is about right.


Acrobatic_Budget_328

This is one good performance, if he keep his spot in the team for the rest of the season I'd consider it


drlobster4

Give him lacazettes spot I don’t want him starting if he doesn’t see himself here in the near future. Eddie is still giving our club a chance unlike like lacazette so I think we should respect eddie the same


thekingofkrabs

Laca has given a lot for this club. He was asked a question and answered it honestly. Nobody should have a problem with what he said.


MattJFarrell

I want to know what tournament we're in next year. If we're in Europa, Eddie is def good enough for early games, especially. If we somehow eke out CL, we need someone better.


pairolegal

Eddie may get better himself, he’s young.


laserspewpew_

We are certainly making the Amazon documentary interesting


FoxOntheRun99

I can smell my microwave popcorn already, it either end in a tragedy or a happy ending with a new contract to Eddie, hahah.


metallica_86

Keep up the momentum boys. Coaches has put Nuno to work extra hard this week and is evident in his game. There were still few mistakes but more game time should get him settled in.


Special-Discount228

Unfortunately he’s a bit dopey so as usual let’s a goal in because he’s switched off


DinnerSmall4216

Incredible win looking at the team I thought the worse but credit to arteta and the team what a performance.


Vegetable_Pudding_75

My sentiments exactly. What a performance. Arteta really did his job after the consecutive losses. Nketiah, still not convinced but this was his best performance for us ever so I’m happy. Coyg. Let’s murder man united


[deleted]

Anybody watching the Sky coverage? Paul Merson is a joke. Makes it so obvious he’s a Chelsea fan. The replay of Saka ‘almost slipping’ and the fact he didn’t think it was a penalty… lol


ValeoAnt

>Paul Merson Er, he played over 300 games for Arsenal, in what world is he a Chelsea fan? He's just dumb.


TheParisOne

He supported Chelsea as a kid. It's not overly surprising he still supports them, even if he did play for a rival team.


[deleted]

Err, just because you play for a club doesn’t mean you’re a fan of them. He has a box/season ticket at Chelsea and referred to them as ‘we’ on Sky last night - I also know people who have gone to speeches of his and spoke with him after, he’s a Chelsea fan.


thekingofkrabs

It was the weakest pen I've seen in quite awhile and I've seen a dozen weak ones go against us tbh


Special-Discount228

Saka shithoused that pen. Pulled him through the box 😂


MattJFarrell

Agreed, but Mount should have been double yellowed out in the first half, so I'm ok taking this.


thekingofkrabs

I'd have rather seen Mount justifiably debt off than get the weak penalty in extra time. Now we get to listen to the haters say "see it evens out"


killswitchdh

After years of class football, I am here for the age of shithousery.


[deleted]

Honestly looked a clear penalty to me on every angle and replay that I saw. I’m a tad biased though lol


Special-Discount228

Azpi puts his arm around him for a second but then saka grabs his wrist and just drags him for the rest. It wouldn’t be given if saka didn’t do all that. Smartz


[deleted]

Hard man Cesar Azpilicueta should know far better than to grapple with an attacker in the box like that. He can’t have any complaints.


Rainandsnow5

The man wrestles Unicorns, Azpi had no chance.


BayGV

Huge win. Showing there is something to this team, and group of lads. Wins against United and West Ham and that would almost make up for the 3 losses on the spin


thekingofkrabs

Not really. If we even got 5 points from those 3 losses which on and of itself would have been disappointing we'd be level on points with chelski. Now we need to win out.


fortitudefinder

My girl is mad at me cuz I was screaming too loud in the match who cares YA GUNNERS YA


lickingnutrea

You guys can have sarr lol


[deleted]

Why does Azpilicueta embarrass himself every time he plays against us? What a joke of a man looool


Cutsdeep-

anyone see that tiff he had with the chelsea fan after full time? looked like he was going to have a go


survivorghalia

get eddie on a podcast every week plz


cptds

wtf I wasn't expecting wins now


MattJFarrell

Yeah, in this run of games, this was the one I wasn't expecting any points from.


juragan_12

Focus against Man Utd and we good to go !


MajesticBadgerMan

Immensely proud of the lads. Great win. The last 3 losses hurt a **lot** more. 6 points from the 9 dropped and we’d be above Chelsea. On the bright side, we’re truly still in the race. Shite have to play Pool away, we just need a result against Utd and them, and the rest are in our hands.


pureeyes

Eh, part of me believes we'd not have won this game had we won the other three. We love to do things the hard way


sourneck

Ugh that sucks to realise...


[deleted]

All part of the plan, go on a losing streak ahead of the big fish and catch them by surprise. The Arsenal Way


kobe1012

Siri.. play ‘We Dem Boiz’


[deleted]

[удалено]


jebthepleb

We worked hard and didn't give up, what more can you ask of them?


_DNL

Horrible? We found a way to win… Would you rather us have pointless possession like against Southampton and Brighton and not score?


cikamicko

Do you not understand the concept of my comment or you too young to understand that shit , you think whu man utd spurs are gonna gift us 3 goals? Even newcastle away is though fixture


_DNL

It’s almost like you think every game will be the same, how long have you watched football? Last week we had loads of chances and no goals. This week we had the goals and not as many chances. You’re also forgetting Chelsea scored a deflected goal of their own. We played the European champions away from home and found a way to win. Result > Performance


lunentianutto

Start Elneny and Nketiah from now on and we'll get top 4 as simple as that!


[deleted]

Nketiah!


Sometimers

Love this club.


CommercialAsparagus

Couldn’t pinpoint a player who didn’t play well for us today. Really happy for Nketiah too, finally gets 2 games and gets 2 goals 🤷🏼‍♂️ Trust the process.


swapko051

Pyramid Pirlo was great today,


Informal-Firefighter

What a game, lads


_DNL

Lukaku is Finnish


Jjcheese

He’s definitely Belgian


chatblancsring

Wdym? I thought he was Belgian /s


Professional_Web5069

xhaka and elneny put a shift in


[deleted]

Nuno Tavares does his best Andre Santos impression every time he steps on the pitch lol


RemoteLostControl

3-4-3 gives Xhaka the freedom to move forward, and Elneny is a doing a very decent job. But Nuno still looks very shaky.


therollingfog

insane


altero_reddit

Legends will know this was posted as 2-3 and not 4


javiikillz

Letttts goooo! Shoutout to all the people who were at work watching the game. I was sweating from my palms more than the lads on the pitch! Lets just hope they can take it and run with it.


TheBigBongTheory

I don't want to be negative after such a great win, but I feel this result makes the last three harder to swallow. If we'd even won two of the three we'd be sitting in third place. Regardless, great result today.


Azraelontheroof

You and Tottenham always show up for the big games and bottle the easier ones


TheBigBongTheory

This was always the way. Pain.


Azraelontheroof

A Liverpool fan here to say I’m glad you won and I hope you get 3rd over Chelsea… could happen


Cutsdeep-

don't need your hope mate. you better save that for the title run. reckon city have it.


Azraelontheroof

Probably, both teams easily win the last stretch but Everton’s shown us City aren’t immutable to bottom table team upsets (*even if the ref doesn’t see it that way), and obviously neither are we


Azraelontheroof

Probably, both teams easily win the last stretch but Everton’s shown us City aren’t immutable to bottom table team upsets (*even if the ref doesn’t see it that way), and obviously neither are we


TheBigBongTheory

My whole family support Liverpool, I've always had a soft spot for them, delighted to see you back on top.* Of football, not the table. Rooting for you though.


AshhhhhhhL

It's genuinely a lot to swallow. Like wtf, how have we lost those last few games and yet run over Chelsea. What the fuck.


TheBigBongTheory

I know it's a meme at this stage, but it's a very Arsenal thing to do. I wouldn't be surprised if we gift UTD a win on Saturday to appease the football gods.


Quab775

Eddie can claim striker spot at Arsenal


RemoteLostControl

Eddie needs to work on his link up play.


odth123456

lol


wordsandmagic

Why are we like this?


Gmoney1412

Life would be boring if we won all the time


Much-Ad7704

This man is accurate with a hammer.


JK031191

As if we'd ever want to be something stupid like The Invincibles


vidr1

What do you guys say about the penalty? Yes Saka pulls Azpilicueta down with him, but Azpilicueta is the one who doesn't give a shit about the ball to begin with and only tries to stop Saka with his arms. So for me it's a soft pen, but it's still a pen since the wanker is breaking the rules to keep Saka away from the ball.


ilovejunebug

Saka is learning the dark arts. Long may it continue


Ash26_gunner

Also am glad that Azpi got punished. Man actually makes me hate him


Ash26_gunner

I just hate the fact that this is the second time against Chelsea that we are easily cruising and then given a free pass from VAR. That's all the neutral fans want. Now no one is talking about the should-have-been red cards at all. We are always shown as the villains.


Le_Va

Would Saka be able to get a yellow but still call it a pen?


vidr1

No because Saka isn't breaking any rules, it's not a dive for me.


aljazzeira

I think it's hilarious, and I'm totally comfortable with cheating a pen to secure a win at Stamford Bridge. By any mean necessary


vidr1

It really was a unbelievable way to kill the game. Saka is evolving his psychological game.


golf002

By any means necessary is possibility the best response I've seen so far


JK031191

Not a pen, but yeah, we were due to some luck, even though we would've probably won anyway.


ValeoAnt

I wish we used that one up v Spurs instead


aenz_

I think I wouldn't give a pen, but you're right that Azpi isn't innocent there like the commentators (at least the ones I was listening to) implied.


Nadami

After the amount of times we’ve been fucked over with pens, we deserved one of these to go our way


Cocomale

WTF IS THIS SCORELINE? I had zero hope lol, not even 1%. Kudos to the fans who saw this live :)


fitz958

Ian Wright playing up top for us today. Man if only we had at least drawn against any of the last three.


JohanChill

This! I had the same thought man. Second goal in particular (after jumping around yelling) my first thought was "damn that young man reminds me of Wrighty".


stackofbaconpancakes

Big win!!! Hopefully we can take it to United on the weekend but for now up the cannon #COYG


aenz_

Btw, why was the stadium so empty? Have Chelsea fans just been a Russian Psy-Op this whole time?


puhadaze

Is this a serious q? Coz they can’t sell tickets because they are dropping in blood money- so it’s season ticket holders only.


aenz_

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Worked out nicely for us, felt like a home game.


puhadaze

It really did!


Nove1991

Wow! I need a moment to process what I've just witnessed.


gunningIVglory

Wtf was cedric in today? Man was tearing down the right like prime CR7....


ThrowtheMountain

*Arteta subbing out Emile for Cedric*. Gooners: oh no a defensive sub… Prime CedricRonaldo7: I’m attacker, yes.

I work at a university and was sitting in a hallway watching. I may have freaked out some students with my muted but aggressive fist pumps at FT...


LocostarX

Lol nice


mylittlehecarim

After the first 20 mins I decided to skip class for the day and I am happy it was 100% worth it! Spooked some kids in the library as well


VioletBolt

Classic Arsenal Moment


Scythe365

Inclusion of Elneny and Nke changed the momentum


aenz_

Saka at RWB was amazing. What a player we have on our hands!


ValeoAnt

He basically just played RW, not really RWB at all.


aenz_

I think at the start he was RWB, but you're probably right that he was RW for the vast majority of the match.


apinovice

Sweet sweet win.


LocostarX

Arteta got his team selection right tonight , I just wish he would’ve taken a risk and mixed it up earlier


Izyynator12

I just want blitz start against United, the players the stadium and everyone on the same energy.


wrigh2uk

Elneny, Xhaka and Nketiah were absolutely class tonight.


QCGunnrs

Pyramid Pirlo at it again


Getdaphone

Let’s gooooo get fucked Chelsea


duperhans

Really satisfying post this one


fifareefa

Come on you fucking gunners!!!! Hale end only seriously be steezing out and fuck Chelsea, fuck Chelsea and lastly fuck Chelsea! Saka and Emile smith roooowe


Jack-in-the-Xbox

What a fantastic result! A fitting tribute to the great Steve Rowley! That was absolutely vital, in a match where very few gave Arsenal a chance. I have to say, that was one of the worst refereeing performances I have seen. The standard of officiating in this country is disgraceful, and they should be made to answer for a display like that. A massive result, after a disappointing run of games. It takes a great deal of character to come back in that way. They need to take this and keep pushing until the end of the season. It isn’t over.


GrandMasterHOOT

I'd take beating Chel$ea, Manu and Shit and losing the 3 we just lost all day every day


Emergency-Flatworm45

Not sure if saka was getting the English star boy treatment on the pen but Mount certainly got it. Two borderline reds catching our players studs up, so confident moss wouldn’t do anything he told Tavares to get the f* up, ridiculous


duperhans

Moss is like that pal. Feel gabby helped the pen call also.


mxrcxsldn

Wow


aenz_

Very unrelated, but I just watched some footage from the concentration camps Serbians were putting Albanians in, and I feel like I understand the spark of rage that Xhaka has inside him better.


halbalda

There is a reason people from certain ethnic backgrounds are more hot-headed than others. I would know because I'm also from one, but I do think Xhaka is just very prone to ignoring all sense of logic and sometimes shoots himself in the foot with his lack of self-control.


aenz_

I'm Polish, and I can still feel the cultural aftershocks of the holocaust, so I can only imagine what an impact having those experiences in your lifetime would do. Especially if you know people who went through it.


halbalda

Yep, spot on.


emoskeleton_

On paper, this was easily the toughest match for the rest of our season since March. How did we win?


VioletBolt

Elneny. I want someone to make a compilation of what Elneny did today!


emoskeleton_

Best Egyptian player in the league. Or the world.


cjarrett

Ramadan Elneny is a masterclass.


aenz_

Grit, a bunch of luck, and a sprinkle of artetaball


GrandMasterHOOT

all about the process....


Scythe365

The way we lost those three cakewalks


ShowMeTheMonee

We had 3 shots on target tonight and 4 goals. Pretty much the opposite of the last 3 games.


Izyynator12

Typical arsenal Innit


madddoggydog

Imagine if we didn’t piss away the last three games… 66 points 😫


ajyahzee

You just know eventually it will be down to the NLD


mango_invasion

LET'S FKN GOOOOO! Glad to see some of the boys on the bench get a chance to shine tonight. Elneny and Eddie, this was yours!


Mayor_Fob_Rord

Funny thing: I played an Arsenal career mode game at Chelsea before the game today. Ironically, I won 4-2😂


koliveira15

amazing. now play again against united and win 7-1 please


xhouliganx

Now play Man U in career mode and win please


Mayor_Fob_Rord

I’ll aim for a 6-0 win 😈😂


DirectCrow2221

8 - 0 Would be satisfying. I was 11 when Man U beat us. That pain stayed with me for months. I failed to go to school for that next week. I was too embarrassed.


Striking_General941

Thank you


LocostarX

Lol you predicted it mate


Mayor_Fob_Rord

I need play Fifa before every Arsenal game now 😂

Now bring that performance against Maguire and scoring shouldn't be too hard.


Scythe365

Inb4 De Gea has the game of his life


Inorris0

Against us again


vidr1

Azpilicueta has always been one of the biggest jerks in PL, shows it again and again. He and Alonso has always been the big wanker-bros of PL. They show exactly what chelski stands for = nothing. Oil money can buy you a lot(of titles), but they could never buy you class.
