Yesterday marked Arsene Wenger’s 20th year with Arsenal! Such a legendary event needed to be marked by a legendary performance from his team. Did they deliver?
Well, not at first. The Gunners failed to produce the spirited gameplay that would have made everything a lot easier. Arsenal had more possession than Burnley, but they definitely weren’t doing much with it.
It was literally in the last moments of the game when their golden moment arrived. Koscielny proved to be the player in shining boots when he netted the winning goal in the last seconds of extra time. Although heart-rending for Burnley, a win like this must have been all the more sweeter!
Congratulations Wenger! You are a loyal and successful manager and, considering the way Arsenal is climbing up the PL table, this might just be the season that you bring home the Premier League trophy!
