Don't really car about the performance today as it was the 3rd game in 7 days.

Auba was excellent. Surprised me with his recent heading ability.

Thought Ozil was very good again

A very good win against a good opponent.

We played some good football in the first half and conceded an awful goal right before HT when I thought we controlled them.

Second half we looked absolute knackered. You could see that our youngster Saka struggled badly and made some mistakes that could have cost us a goal.

Auba was a real captain. He worked his socks off today and most importantly scored.

Thought Xhaka, Özil, Ceballos (some misplaced ball in the first half) had good games. Thought also that Gwendo did well when he came on.

Leno made a mistake but came back with the goods later when we needed him most.

3 games in 7 days take his toll on us. The game cost us a few engergy levels.

Thought Saka bar the great assist was pretty poor, gave the ball away quite abit and got caught out dwelling on the ball.

Mustafi looked good and he also looked poor imo. Way too many times he was left 1v1 vs the everton attacker. That shouldn't be happening that many times but he dealt with it ok.

On another day Everton dont score them 2 goals due to the ref giving us the decisions.

2nd half was pretty horrid but we managed to hold on somehow.

Ceballos is made for PL despite his small frame. It’ll be a shame if he’s to go back to Madrid in the summer but whilst we’ve got him, we may as well make use of his talent. However I find defensively midfield isn’t as good with Xhaka and Ceballos partnership compared to Xhaka and Torreira. But at home I see no reason why we can’t use the former.

And pray tell, what remarkable wondrous day would this be and when? Every week the ref shows bias and it's NEVER in our aid.

They've yet to play one of the teams strong enough to exploit the defensive weakness that is Ozil. As soon as they get a 3 man job to do, they'll look a lot worse. Ceballos is good defensively but he's no DM. The extra pressure from a high bore attack means if you insist on leaving Ozil in, then you need Torreira and Ceballos behind him. Xhaka just isn't mobile enough to compensate for Ozil's weak showing in that role. Ceballos may be but it'd be the tiniest MF pairing the PL had ever seen. I suppose they'd have the advantage of seeming to appear out of nowhere, to the opposition because they won't be able to see them behind tall lanky Ozil and Auba

Özil played well today. Not sure which game you watched

posted on 23/2/20

Yeah quite impressed with the performance even though it had its flaws, but earlier in the season that would have been a 100% loss. There’s promising signs building but a way to go to be certain of that, Europe is still a big ask. We’d have to Win a huge amount of games, and hope others capitulate, so we’ll have to take each game as it comes. But at the moment Europa is the best hope

Well said D'Jeezus.
The sooner Saliba comes into the fold and Luiz gets switched into minor appearances and dressing room support the better....

Ozil was really good today. Like the old Ozil before the huge contract.

posted on 24/2/20

GT.

Not about whether he played well yesterday. Entirely about the fact that we know, without shadow of a doubt, that the second the going gets tough, Ozil RUNS FOR HILLS. That is if you haven't chosen to selectively forget the VAST MAJORITY of Ozil performances over the last 5 years. You say he played well so what's my problem as though he has a record something like 100 games, 80 good and 20 bad, so we can/should forget the 20. But the reality is his record is more 20 good and 80 bad. Just FAR TOO MANY games to, simply forget as past.

Too much Ozil water under the Emirates bridge mate. Even if he won himself the ballon d'or for games between now and the end of the season, I STILL wouldn't be forgetting how much he's already let us down and would still want him out of our club. Arteta and some fans are being straight SET UP! Ozil's game here now is to have fans and manager alike convinced. The renewing his juicy fat contract, though an expensive option, is cheaper than paying transfer fee and future wages of a replacement. Only has to look worth 60 mil or so and suddenly, paying those dumbass wages he's on another few years, doesn't seem such a bad idea.

THAT'S WHY all of you need to wake the feck up and remember the last time we were here. 4 years ago, when he literally signed his fat new contract one day, then near enough DISAPPEARED as a force on the pitch, the next. We've paid 350k a week the whole time, whilst he's played as though he's getting 35k. If fans don't wake up soon, he is going to do the EXACT SAME THING TO US AGAIN! That's "The game I've been watching." The one apparently few to none of you have even realised you're playing.

** Or I should say "The game you're being played," in.

BO$$,
This is pretty much what the commentators said, one even went so far as to say that Everton could have won the game with their second half performance.

At this point Arsenal will gladly take a win, even an ugly win! Still lots of work to be done.
