Best i have seen with Oggy in the team regarding defending. Both their strikers were through today and missed chances, Declan must have stopped them 4 or 5 times when they were in full flow. No idea what Anderson had for breakfast because he played a blinder defensively, even made 3 tackles. Flappy was probably quiet because their finishing was diabolical today, but that doesn't mean they never sliced through us a few times.Whiskyman wrote: ↑Sun Jan 13, 2019 12:37 amI didn't. I'm assuming you are referring to the effort Fabianski saved early doors. Of course our defence isn't perfect but considering today we were up against one of the best strikers in Europe I think our defence proved more than adequate. Of course there is always room for improvement but anyone saying Arsenal found it easy to get through our defence today watched a different game to the one I saw. Including the first 15 minutes.
And FFS if a goalie having a relatively quiet afternoon isn't an indication of a defence being in relative control of a situation I don't know what is. I think it's only the 4th clean sheet we've kept, Chelsea, Newcastle & Fulham being the others, and I will stand by my comment it was our best defensive performance of the season. Particularly considering the opposition.
To be honest, Arsenal were very poor today. Only one side turned up for a London Derby. But we are still very vulnerable with just 2 in the middle. Liverpool wont be as generous when get in that box
