  1. Brian says:

    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. Burnsey says:

    Jon Champion is great.

  3. Jyde says:

    Can’t access NBC Sports Live Extra via Uverse on ios….

  4. Christopher Harris says:

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

    And what a header by Aaron Ramsey for the assist!

  5. hoosiergunner says:

    Nice to see glimpses of the team I know and love… good result overall.

  6. Burnsey says:

    Just like I said after the Everton loss, Arsenal have the fixtures they usually win and will end up 4th.

  7. Burnsey says:

    Rebecca, Mustoe and Earle are as good as it will ever get. What a great summary of the weekend.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      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.

    • David says:

      I completely agree. Too bad Fox won’t take notes from NBC and ESPN.
