Arsenal dramatically escaped defeat at the London Stadium on Sunday (21/3/2021) evening WIB in continued Premier League. Why not, Mikel Arteta’s squad was three goals behind in the first 32 minutes.
Goals from Jesse Lingard, Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek made the game look impossible to save. But Soucek’s own goal in the 38th minute kept Arsenal’s hopes up.
In chaos in the first half hour, Arsenal called Lacazette not implementing the game plan that had been drawn up by the manager. In that period, they were overwhelmed by the host’s pressure, then made two fatal mistakes that resulted in the opponent’s second and third goals.
Throughout the first 45 minutes, Arsenal only had two chances on target. While West Ham recorded three, with all of them culminating in goals.
“My feelings are mixed between being proud of the team because we got up in the second half, and disappointed with our first half. In the first 35 minutes, we didn’t respect the game plan of the coach and gave them three goals, so this is not what we wanted,” said Alexandre lacazette was launched BBC.
“Maybe we feel the pressure, because we know this is a big game. This is where we have to develop, so we must be ready for the end of the season,” added the French striker.
After last night’s match, Arsenal is now in ninth position with 42 points from 29 matches. While West Ham is in fifth place with 49 points.
