Arshavin’s Liverpool breakout seems to have provided the inspiration for all the crisp, sharp shooting that we had on display against ‘Boro.
Lots of role reversals today. Beautiful little flick by Bendtner sets up Fabregas relay upfield to a streaking Arshavin who splits wide left, cuts in, and links up beautifully with an arriving Fabregas who goes in for the jugular. Eboue’s Fabregas like pass to Fabregas who sidesteps the onrushing goalie a la Adebayor, whips in the ball for the second goal. These Gunners look like they are enjoying their soccer.
