Arsenal was on Wednesday hosted by West Brom Albion in the Carabao Cup second round and the gunners came after having lost their first two opening games of the season but that however didn’t stop them from walking away with a six nil win. So we are going to take a look at the three talking points that we observed in the game.
1. CONFIDENT AUBAMEYANG IS A JOY TO WATCH
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a hatrick in Arsenal’s six nil win over West Brom Albion and although two of those goals were rebounds, that wasn’t a surprise to many Arsenal fans as that’s how their captain usually scores goals thanks to his good positioning. Aubameyang looked very confident in that game and that’s something that brings joy to the fans as they were afraid that he might not step up this season after a poor pre-season showing.
2. AARON RAMSDALE GETS A NEAR PERFECT DEBUT
Arsenal completed the signing of Aaron Ramsdale a few days ago and he got his debut last night. Even though he almost conceded in a poor back pass, he relatively had a good game as he made many fantastic saves to secure his clean sheet.
It will be interesting to see if Mikel Arteta can surprise everyone by starting Aaron Ramsdale in the game against Manchester City since he said that he signed him because he wanted to have two good goalkeepers at the club.
3. MARTIN ODEGAARD MAKES THINGS TICK
Arsenal signed Martin Odegaard in the summer transfer window on a permanent deal since they were impressed with his performances while they had him on loan. Odegaard played in the game against West Brom Albion and he was impressive as he even assisted one of the goals.
Odegaard’s presence just had a big influence in the game as he combined well with all attackers, and mostly Bukayo Saka who had struggled in the previous game and so the fans will be hoping for the same performances from the Norwegian international in the future.
