Good morning my positive friends.
Well that was lovely, wasn’t it?
Emery made six changes and we scored five goals. No one can complain about that.
We started with two creative players in mkhitaryan and Ozil and low and behold, we created tings. Things like goals and stuff. Hennrikh with a goal and two assists and Mesut with a goal and an assist. Both played well and as a result, the team played well. I would have prefered to see us with four at the back from the off, but the result justifies the selection, I suppose.
People were baming young Matteo for the goal we let in but I felt he was clearly fouled and the goal should never have stood. After that he was targeted and I felt he stood up to it well.
We have to remember that Bournemouth have lost 8 away games on the trot and shipped a load of goals in the process, but still, we comprehensively beat what was in front os us, so well done Emery and the lads.
Some of our attacking play was glorious, with Mesut being the orchestra leader, he really is a joy to watch.
We go into the NLD on Saturday lunch time only four points behind them and them struggling for form. I expect Ramsey and Xhaka to come in and that could mean Musut is back on the bench. Personally I think that would be madness, but we shall see.
This was a game where our performance matched the result. Lovely stuff.
