Arsenal 1-0 Doncaster Rovers and League Cup Draw

Carabao Cup, Injuries, Match Preview, NewsNow

So many positives from last night, its unbelievable. Arsene Wenger will be overflowing with positivity ahead of our home game against West Brom next week.

We swept aside League One Doncaster Rovers with the greatest of eas— actually, we sneaked past them 1-0 and held on for 75 minutes to get through, just. Doncaster looked like a decent, well organised side who played without fear and were unlucky not to at least take us to extra time.

Anyway, Theo Walcott’s goal was enough to see us through with quite a few other big teams and Spurs to the fourth round where we have another home tie, this time against Delia Smith’s Canaries, Norwich City.

Alexis Sanchez, Theo and Olivier Giroud all started the game, and Man of Match Jack Wilshere also played the whole game as his return to first team action beckons.

Oli G came close to his 100th goal for Arsenal with an amazing effort following a tidy little chipped pass from Super Jack, would have been some way to join the 100 club.

Anyway, we are through, that’s all that matters though we wouldn’t be Arsenal without a couple of injury worries. The Metro reports that Theo Walcott and Calum Chambers both picked up knocks to join Danny Welbeck, Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil in the Arsenal field hospital.

Fingers crossed Ozil can get back to fitness before Monday where we may well see a fully fit and firing frontline of Sanchez, Ozil and Lacazette.

Mmmm… goals.
