The faithful descended on the Emirates Stadium earlier this week, their hopes and expectations stalled as they walked towards their seats.
They came for another football extravaganza, a matchup that featured two teams combating for that glorified top four positions, one that has slowly crept to the third position in the table and the other hoping to reach there.
Keeping in mind that both these teams, in the beginning of the campaign, were going through a terrible spell.
It was the North London derby every EPL enthusiast was looking forward to.
First half goals from Louis Saha and ex-Arsenal front man, Adebayor, provided a sure indication of Tottenham walking away with this one.
But the beauty of the sport came into play here; only when we thought all hope was lost, Bacary Sagna of all people stepped up.
There was no stopping them from thereon. Within a gap of 20 minutes they had managed to score five with one from an expected name – Robin Van Persie.
Second half goals from Theo Walcott and Thomas Rosicky? No one woke up and would say that Sunday morning (Eastern Time).
It was also here when Harry Redknapp’s face was turning a shade of red that would lead some to believe his face was that of an Arsenal supporter.
With great performances by Benayoun, who by the way I had been thinking all year, should have more time on the field.
Arsenal, at this point, showed their true industrious self, the same, which was visible against Chelsea and Blackburn.
With game of similar importance, against Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea coming down it’s fixtures list, the question is will they be able to showcase this identity at the respective fixtures?
Massimiliano Allegri – Please take note. Arsenal is capable of scoring five straight goals against a good team. But then again, I should be taking note that they had already scored four against Arsenal.
