Thursday 5th April - Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow (QF 1st Leg)

Recommended Posts

Ignashevich (38) & the Berezutski twins (35) are still starters for CSKA? Guess they won't be playing a high line...

Main worry is Musa's pace on the counter and set pieces. Should really win this by at least 2 goals.

Musa seems to have settled being back at CSKA but I'd still say you have little to worry about. 

Golovin and Dzagoev probably the players to watch more so.

 

*watch Musa score now.

Very close offside call on Ozil. Looked level to me. Set up Ramsey who finished it but disallowed due to offside.

At hte other end Musa was onside but incorrectly called offside as he was through on goal.

1-0 Arsenal! Ramsey's goal counts this time! Bellerin arrows a cross directly in to Ramsey's path and he finishes in to the roof of the net. Too easy for Arsenal

That's a great free-kick by Golovin. Lovely hit.

Penalty Arsenal. Looked like a blatant foul on Ozil.

Lacazette converts! Arsenal back in front.

3-1 Arsenal. Ramsey lobs Akinfeev with a delicate volley. Beautiful.

CSKA seem to get into good positions as a team but individual quality has been shocking.

4-1, Lacazette again. Arsenal playing some beautiful stuff but CSKA aren't half making it easy for them.

Ozil would be getting absolutely rimmed every week if he played for City, Tottenham or Liverpool. Quality 90% of the time I've seen him for the past 18 months.

Wonder if ArsenalFanTV will be calling for Wenger's resignation tonight? Melts.

could have sworn I saw some Arsenal fans (not on here) asking for Ramsey to be sold as well. he's been their best player recently.

Probably the same ones that still think Wilshere is class. Not in the same league as Ozil and Ramsey.

Hit and miss. Unreliable.

Not to the extent that people make out in the race to pile on the negative rhetoric surrounding Arsenal. Think he's a victim of the players around him at times as well. The main criticism I accept is that he doesn't do much in big games because he's not going to turn a game for you if you're on the back foot. In terms of his talent on the ball and passing ability I think he's underappreciated though.

Tonight CSKA just had a little spell and a disallowed goal. Arsenal need to be careful and not give up the momentum ahead of the long haul second leg trip, having a better spell now though.

Credit to Arsenal for beating what's in front of them comprehensively but how bad were Lyon to lose to this lot?

Shocking from CSKA. If Arsenal were more clinical they would be on 6 or 7 now.

The trip to Russia will be difficult but that should be the tie done. Great performance from Ozil and Ramsey.

Not had much time these past few days but just to say that I'm ecstatic about this result and the fact we keep on advancing. We're not the best side remaining in the tournament by a long stretch, but that doesn't mean it can't be done if confidence is there... Let's hope and keep our fingers crossed because I'd love to win this one!  It's been a long long time since I celebrated Arsenal winning something in Europe and they're great memories.

Aaron Ramsey doesn't get anywhere near the credit he deserves, totally underrated and easily one of the best in the league if not world. He has everything and his second goal was just a thing of beauty. I really hope Arsenal get his contract sorted, it would be a disaster to lose him especially with the current state of our midfield.

Only caught the last 20 minutes because of work, but this is a great result after being pegged back at 1-1 and conceding the away goal. Hopefully we can just breeze by in Russia now without too much to worry about.

You lot would be mad to sell him to us. I'd take him ahead of Drinkwater in a heart beat.

Mate he would start week in week out for you, no question. It will be interesting to see who will come in for him if contract talks stall. Any top club should be sniffing around, the only downside to him is he does always pick up a few injuries a season.
