  1. Very big game for Arsenal. They need to put pressure on Everton by winning and going a point above them. Everton play tomorrow against Crystal Palace. Allardyce feels that Arsenal will be tired from their FA Cup semifinal game on Saturday having gone to penalties after playing 120 minutes. We shall see.

  2. This should give Arsenal a huge boost for the rest of the season.

    And what a header by Aaron Ramsey for the assist!

    1. Agreed. In my interview with Kyle Martino a couple of weeks ago, he said in passing how they over-prepare for everything. And the hard work has been paying off all season.
