That, was better. It’s not as simple as saying “everything’s fixed now”, because we all watched the first half, but Arsenal played much, much better in the second half, scoring three goals in nine minutes, starting with a glorious Gabriel Martinelli run, to claim all three points at the London Stadium tonight.
There’s still a lot to be done, but for now, let’s just enjoy something we haven’t seen in a long time - a three point addition to Arsenal’s point total. We can talk about the issues that remain tomorrow, and people can “but West Ham” all they want, but this is exactly the type of game Arsenal were losing as recently as, well, last week, so tonight, just enjoy what you saw today, and we can worry about how this team looks against good teams starting tomorrow.
