Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi first half goals give Arsenal a rather comfortable win at Goddison Park leaving home fans frustrated with Everton’s terrible run of results at home.
Arsenal has been woeful of late and they needed a reaction from the squad against Everton in league game. Thats exactly when Wenger got when Arsenal brushed Everton aside with a superb first half performance. Early goal from Danny Welbeck in 7th minute and a magnificent counter attacking goal just before the break from Iwobi made it 2-0 and put Arsenal in commanding position.
Danny Welbeck put Arsenal 1-0 up against Everton with an early strike in 7th minute of the game while youngster Alex Iwobi was handed his first league start and he grabbed his first and Arsenal’s second of the day with a neatly taken strike just before the break as Arsenal went into the half time 1-0 up.
Everton 0-2 Arsenal Match Highlights
[Premier League, Saturday, 12 March 2016 ]
07′ 0 – 1 Danny Welbeck
42′ 0 – 2 Alex Iwobi
Match Preview: Arsene Wenger and Arsenal has been under massive pressure from fans and media since the turn of the year as they wobbled off in pretty much their traditional fashion having been knocked out by Barcelona, out of the FA Cup and also lost a stranglehold on premier league title. It all comes down to Arsenal’s poor form of late where they have only won 1 game in the last 8 matches.
Arsenal will have to cope with massive injury pile up with Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini and Cech joining Wilshere, Rosicky and Cazorla on the treatment table. So Daivd Ospina set to continue in goal Hector Bellerin, Monreal, Mertasacker and Koscielny to make up the back four. Elnany and Coquelin to play in holding roles with Ozil, Campbell and Sanchez (doubtful) playing behind Olivier Giroud.
Everton will be delighted with the form of Lukaku who can not stop scoring at the moment and his well taken double against Chelsea got themselves a place in the semifinals of FA Cup. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Saturday.
Match Predictions: Everton has been woeful at home losing 7 games this season and their recent form against Arsenal is not something they will be looking up too having only won 1 game in the last 17 meetings. But this is the perfect opportunity for Everton to get something out of a game against Arsenal. I am going with a 2-1 win for Everton with Lukaku scoring a brace.
