Arsenal 4 – 0 Cardiff City: Eduardo 20, Bendtner 34, Eduardo 60 pen, Van Persie 89. Goal highlights.
After a short hiatus Arsenal were back in form last night at the Emirates, against a poor Cardiff side. It was the first game in ages that I haven’t seen, I was travelling, but reports, highlights and the word on the street all point to it being a pleasurable game to watch.
I can’t say that much about the game obviously, you can find extended ITV highlights here though. I would like to congratulate Eduardo on a fantastic return game, two goals is a great start and it will lessen the pressure on him considerably, we won’t be waiting for his first goal after a lengthy injury spell!
Wenger on Eduardo:
“He had a good game for his first game back. When you have such a long time out, it’s difficult to be patient, to come in every day and see everyone else play. He had to deal with a lot of frustrations.
“I believe – as any striker – he can contribute and help us to win games. He has the perfect spirit, he is talented and is intelligent.”
Well said Mr. Wenger.
I don’t know when our game against Burnley in the 5th Round is scheduled, but hopefully we can get it out of the way as soon as possible, avoiding any fixture pile ups, what with the Champions League games coming up.
So a good night for Arsenal, bring on Sunderland this Saturday, and hopefully a glimpse of Arshavin!
Here’s the new Nike advert, Arsenal vs. Mancs. I think you will agree it is pretty good, but what happens next??
