Half time at White Hart and its a familiar breakdown in defense that gives Spurs the one goal lead.
Emmanuel Adebayor floats the ball into the box. Per Mertesacker gets fronted easily by Rafael Van Der Vaart and Bakary Sagna fails to track back leaving the Dutchman free to control with a hint of a hand before he chests the ball down and finish past Szcezsny. I am now firmly convinced that Arsenal are a learning disabled team. A solid defender like Sagna fails to recognize the danger? What hope for Laurent Koscielny and Johan Djourou?
Aaron Ramsey continues to show a slide in form. It's been a nightmare to see him struggle with the simplest of passes. There was a beautiful opportunity for Walcott open to shoot from the top of the box and Ramsey flubs a short side pass. Francis Coquelin has been very good though. He looks very assured.
Spurs haven't looked particularly good themselves but we've learned that does not really mean much when it comes to Arsenal. The Gunners have to pull up their socks in the second half.
