The pressure was on at The Emirates this Monday night as we faced Newcastle for a chance to get ourselves into the coveted top three.
A goal in each half was enough to take that chance, with Ramsey and Ozil both on the scoresheet to win the game.
Ozil was man of the match and the win saw us end the weekend above Spurs, albeit short-lived after they won against Palace on Wednesday night in their brand new, late, £500m, one billion pound stadium. We now find ourselves back with a game in hand which will be against Everton at Goodison Park this weekend, if the meantime if you fancy a gamble, head to bestusabettingsites.
Referee Anthony Taylor did his utmost to try and ruin our hopes of top four disallowing two perfectly good goals during the game, one from Ramsey and one from Lacazette that he wrongly judged to have been a handball.
Speaking in The Metro, Emery said, after the game:
“We were improving little by little and our first goal helped us a lot. Mesut Ozil has quality, when he can find the best performance for the team, he is playing like we want with the system and how tactically we want. He is giving us his quality. We are making progress in the table but we know it is difficult, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United are going to win a lot of games…”
Next up is Everton away on Sunday, then next week it is back to Europa League with the visit of Napoli to The Emirates with the return leg a week later, Watford being the English meat in the Italian sandwich a week on Monday. The Hornets are finding some form now, and might want to try their luck in the best online casino to ensure it continues.
Very weird how our fixtures all of a sudden look a lot tougher than they did last week, two home games, and five away, but we are on a nice run, so let us hope it continues and we can make our way back into the top three once again.
