Three wins on the trot for Arsenal. 4 points off 5th place in the Premier League. Looking likely to advance in the Europa League (knock on wood). An FA Cup 5th round tie against League One Portsmouth. Life is good for the Gunners right now.
Today’s 3-2 win over Everton was an impressive one. It was Arsenal’s 3rd match in 7 days, and the Gunners went behind inside the first minute. But instead of folding (as I’d wager a number of people thought they might), they fought back. Eddie Nketiah leveled the match at one off another Bukayo Saka assist. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the Gunners in front off a great through ball from David Luiz. Aubameyang also got the winner, heading home Nicolas Pepe’s cross.
I try not to influence your votes on these, but y’all, Pierre. Emerick. Aubameyang. He was a menace today. His brace ties him for the Premier League lead in goals, and he’s managing that playing out of position with much more defensive responsibilities than before. I’m expecting some 10’s.
