...Since Arsenal last won a Trophy
Well Gunners, what can I say? we left it late but by god we rescued that. To say this was by no means a classic or vintage Arsenal match is a bloody understatement. The fact of the matter is we was poor on the day. but think the draw is a fair result....well a result im taking anyway :)
With Only seven minutes to go the Gunners some how managed to pull this one from the death and ended up taking a point back to London.
Seamus Coleman opened the scoring in the 19th minute with a header from Gareth Barry’s pass and Steven Naismith tucked away a second just before half-time following crazy play from Lukaku, replay's would later show not only was it a foul on our beloved Per, but the goal was offside as well. you could just tell this wasn't going to be Arsenals day.
Olivier Giroud, who only came on at half-time for Alexis, then headed in to salvage an unlikely point for the Gunners in the 90th minute.
By now the chants of "2 up and you fucked it up could be heard from the travelling Arsenal fans...In fine voice once again lads.
Jack Wilshere was lucky to escape with a yellow card for a late sliding challenge on Barry. Mathieu Debuchy followed him into the book with a petty challenge on Naismith.
Howard made his first save of the match in the 68th minute from Giroud, who rolled a weak shot into the American's hands from 12 yards.
Wenger looked to inject some life into his side by replacing Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain with Cazorla and Joel Campbell.
Arsenal finally found the net with seven minutes to go. Cazorla flashed a low ball across the box in front of six Everton players, and Ramsey prodded home.
Giroud had the last laugh though, by sending the home crowd into silence with a last-minute header from Nacho Monreal's cross.
