A new looking Arsenal clinched a resounding victory against a hapless Everton side on Saturday. A 5-1 scoreline was just as the game unfolded and it just encourages the Arsenal faithfuls that their club are going in the right direction.
Here we take a look at the things we learned in the match at the Emirates.
Things we Learned:
- The Attack looks magnificent: Arsenal signed Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and also managed Mesut Ozil to pen down a new contract. Along with Mkhitaryan, the trio were outstanding in the match as the Armenian was involved in three assists and Aubameyang scored on his debut. And they were WOW on the day, everything was on top as the trio were rampant against the Toffees.Embed from Getty Images
Taking of Aubameyang, his pace was electric, his movement was outstanding, darting into the channels time and time again, and the finish above the onrushing Pickford had class written all over it.
- Ramsey has got his shooting instincts back: Aaron Ramsey scored a hattrick and all the goals were pretty well taken. It is vivid that the swiftness of the passing leading to goal was exquisite, but the Welshman also made himself available at that position which was impressive as well. It has been Ramsey’s first career hattrick and he back among goals is definitely another positive for them.
- Defensive woes are still persistent: The attack they have can blow any team away, but along with that the defense also has to improve. There were ample signs of the fragility at the back and it can be exploited by better teams. The mistakes has been repeated throughout the season and that is the biggest worry for the North London side.Embed from Getty Images
Theo Walcott made a return to his old club
Sead Kolasinac got 45 minutes and defensively he was horrible, at the moment the best defender is Nacho Monreal without a doubt. Although Mustafi had a good game, but the Bosnian was too weak in the cross that led to Everton’s solitary goal in the game. So Wenger will have to tighten his back line to fulfill the higher aspirations.
