Today’s match was a very interesting one at the Emirates and in spite of the hype of new players and new managers for both clubs that have changed from last season’s. The game was leveled at the half time, with Monreal and Arnautovic making it a 1-1 draw at halftime with plenty of shots aimed at Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech.
Arsenal were very poor in the first half because they conceded a cheap goal due to poor defending but they didn’t take long to get an equaliser as Nacho Monreal sent a rocket shot into the back of the net hence the match ending 1-1 at halftime.
Emery chose to replace Iwobi with Lacazette at half time for more attacking man power and Mustafi came near to scoring the second in the following 15 minutes and it was end to end with Arnautovic about getting a second too.
Lacazette almost put Arsenal ahead on the hour mark, yet it was 20 minutes after the chance when he at last helped the gunners go into the lead when his starry-eyed shot into the container fell off Diop to give the gunners a goal past Fabianski finally. 2-1 to the Arsenal and everyone thought that it was gonna end like that.
The final ten minutes was exceptionally physical with cards going out left right and Arsenal stood firm and then Danny Welbeck put the match to bed in added time after another Bellerin cross, the Gunners then got those valuable three points.
