An outstanding first half display made sure Arsenal picked up their first win of the season. Arsenal played some of the best football in ages.  Arsenal went one up after Cazorla converted a penalty after a foul was given on Sanchez. Sanchez then made it two before Ӧzil made it three. Arsenal looked a different side second half which was down to the Watford changes who pulled one back. However, Arsenal saw the match after some nervous moments to pick up the three points.

Arsenal pick up their first point of the season away at the premier league champions. A good point in the end considering we should have been down to ten men and probably should have given away a penalty near full time. However, the performances of Koscielny, Xhaka and Coquelin were all promising in their defensive roles.

Arsenal start the premier league season with a defeat which meant the players were booed off again which sounds like a familiar story. Arsenal were excellent for the first 44minutes but a moment of magic changed the pattern of the game. Arsenal took the lead through a Walcott goal which came a minute after he missed a penalty. A sublime free kick levelled the match which was underserved but three excellent goals followed from Lallana, Coutinho and then Mane. Arsenal pulled one quickly back through Oxlade-Chamberlain and Chambers scored the third.

The final day of the Premier League season ended with an Arsenal win. Arsenal took the lead in the 5th minute through a Giroud header but for the majority of the afternoon it was uncomfortable as Arsenal were sloppy. However, Giroud scored his second in the 78th minute before completing his hat trick in the 80th minute. Arteta then came on for his final performance and scored the 4th with what was effectively the last kick of the game but it may go down as an own goal.

A disappointing performance but three points none the less. All the talk was about the protest in the 12 minute which turned out to be as half-hearted as Arsenal’s title challenge. It was the substitute Welbeck who grabbed the three points and moves Arsenal that one step closer to getting in the top four again.
