how poorly the gunner  

Thursday, 29 January 2009

GOODISON PARK was engulfed in fog last night but that was no excuse for Arsenal losing Tim Cahill in it. The spring-heeled Australian inflicted his third piece of aerial damage on a top-four team but, thanks to Robin van Persie’s immaculate response in the final seconds of injury time, the impact was limited on Arsene Wenger’s team.

Robin van Persie rescued Arsenal from what would have been a damaging defeat with an injury-time equaliser.

In the end both these sides stretched unbeaten runs to nine matches - but Everton will wonder how they let victory slip from their grasp.

The hosts had emerged from a poor start to dominate the match, and were deservedly ahead through Tim Cahill's 100th career goal on the hour.

Everton grew in confidence from then on, but with seconds ticking away, Van Persie - Arsenal's best player - stole in behind the defence to lash home an angled drive for a draw.

Arsenal desperately needed something from this encounter with a fourth-place finish looking in serious danger as Aston Villa continued their march with another away win on Tuesday night.

Fog was swirling around Goodison Park at the start, and Everton saw little of the ball in the opening spell - due to Arsenal's neat passing and possession.

But the nearest the visitors came to a goal was Van Persie's 20-yard free-kick which was deflected wide when it looked to be heading into the top corner.

From both sides we should praise Everton performance which was good attacking but maybe little bit unlucky to get 3 point from visitor. Than Arsenal which likely to win in procession and passing.

In my oppinion Arsenal should focus in how to get a score, even if they play like a rubbish but they get a score with a yard of goal it's superbly done, than they play in tactical of passing but fail to get shoot on target .

We saw how badly mentality of arsenal team during the game, they fear tried to shoot with a long distance. This attitude can allow them trouble, and arsene need to find a solution to restore the performance back.
