Sheffield Utd are going to give us a game tonight, make no mistake about that. They have been unlucky in the games they have lost this season and drew away at Chelsea and only narrowly lost at home to Liverpool. I still fail to see how some people think this is gonna be an easy 3 points. We are going to need to be on top form and pressure them from the off as they WILL be up for it tonight. It's these typical cold rainy nights in Sheffield that concerns me most about this Arsenal side.
And there we have it. I've said it before and I'll say it again. This is the Premier League, anybody can beat anybody. The league has improved big time and many of you are stuck in the 2003 mindset. We started OK but lacked purpose and speed when moving the ball. We should have had a penalty with the shirt pull on Sokrstis (where was VAR????). Pepe should have finished following that lovely passage of play. We needed an early goal in the 2nd half and it didn't come. Must bounce back against Palace on Sunday and midweek in the Europa League. Another thing I noticed tonight was that our set pieces were woeful and crossing was atrocious.
