Oh!!!! Hold my hands, touch my chest, listen to me talk and you’d see how delighted I am.
It was always going to be tough and surely it was. The lads ran out 2-0 winners over Watford at the Emirates, here are four things you want to know about the game
– Emery’s Philosophy Now Yielding Result
The way Arsenal dug in deep to win this game shows how fast the #EmeryBall is evolving from the training ground to the pitch. After failing to win his first two games, Emery now has seven consecutive win.
Play from the back, press high up the pitch, intensity and fight, fight, fight is what Emery wants to bring to the Emirates and this win over Warford clearly amplifies all of these.
Watford started well with the right intensity but weren’t as sharp in the final third with Arsenal needing to bid their time until a Watford own goal and a well worked out goal from Ozil after good delivery from Lacazette who had earlier linked up well with Iwobi on the right.
Gradually, we are all seeing the #EmeryBall in full effect and it’s a delight.
– Rob Holding And Sokratis Has Potential
His first Premier League start of the season and he was excellent. Stood up to the challenge of Deeney and Gray very well, both in the air and on the ground.
Rob Holding put in yet another top notch performance today. He was commanding in the air and very strong in tackle. His passing out was calm too. What a player we got on our hands, no coincidence both our PL clean sheets came with Holding on the pitch. Rock Holding.
– The Iwobi Show
The Emirate was looking flat foot for over 70mins, who will bring up the creativity and inspire the boys, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Xhaka???… No!. Step up Iwobi and skraaaaaa, that was it.
When Iwobi came on today, he offered something completely different. Running behind the full back, using his strength, taking on players, and finally getting the ball into the box early. Hopefully he’s done enough to convince Unai Emery to pick him ahead of Ramsey next week.
Iwobi made a huge difference and seems he has to start ahead of Ramsey. He makes the attack better and is playing like he did early in 2016-17.
– We will miss September
Arsenal in September played 6 games, 6 wins, scored 16 goals and 6 goals conceded.
Who else wants to see Unai Emery win the #PL Manager of the month for September?! . After failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their first five league games, Arsenal have now kept back-to-back clean sheets and Bernd Leno also made his #PL Debut.
Enjoy the win Gunners, back here on Thursday as we are away to Qarabag in the UEFA Europa League.
