Arsenal have had some wild score lines this season losing 8-2 at Manchester United, 4-0 against Milan in the Champions League and at the other end winning 5-3 at Chelsea. This was one for the history books.
The turnaround couldn’t have been more spectacular. Tottenham got off to a blistering start scoring 2 goals before half time with ex-Arsenal player Emmanuel Adebayor celebrating his 28th birthday with a goal. Arsene Wenger looked dejected as the ball hit the back of the net. However, with late first-half goals from Sagna and Van Persie they turned the match around and put themselves on a level footing by half-time. One of the A1 Outsource team members said, “Whatever Wenger said at half-time clearly put fire into the bellies of his team. I’d love to learn his motivational skills!”
Clearly buoyed by their comeback Arsenal broke into the second half in style with Rosicky scoring in the 51st minute. But it was Theo Walcott who cemented the victory for the Gunners. After an incredibly shaky 1st half his pace was blistering in the second and he scored two goals in 3 minutes to sound the death knell for Tottenham.
A1 Outsource listened with beaming smiles as Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger gave his post-match interview. He said after the game that his team was ‘perfect’ and was confident that they could still catch up with Tottenham “It is still possible, if we keep our run going. Why not? Before the game people were saying it was ‘impossible' but I always thought it was possible and it would be down to consistency…
Harry Redknapp shared his frustrations at the international week ahead which will cause club football to lose its momentum. “We need to bounce back and recover. We seemed to buckle after they scored their first, which isn’t like us. We don’t do that often.”
A1 Outsource believe that the attitude that Arsenal showed in the second half was phenomenal and something that we can all learn from. To come from behind and win so convincingly showed incredible perseverance and something to be incredibly proud of.
