Following our epic FA Cup win over Chelsea last month, Arteta doubled his trophy haul with a penalty shoot-out victory over League Champions Liverpool at Wembley.
The game itself finished 1-1, largely due to sloppy Arsenal finishing, but we held our nerve in the penalty shoot-out to win the tie and lift the shield to add to our FA Cup victory over Chelsea.
Aubameyang scored our goal, his 5th goal at Wembley in his last 3 games there, but Minamino equalised with his first Liverpool goal with just ten minutes left to set up a grandstand finish.
Martinez had another great game in goal, in for the injured Bernd Leno and Ainsley Maitland-Niles had another blinder in defence. Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson came on as subs (after a few games on the usrealmoneycasinos) for the last ten minutes were equally as impressive.
Van Dijk had a goal disallowed for Liverpool just before Aubameyang scored with a sublime finish and even in my unbiased opinion, we had the lion’s share of the game and deserved to win it.
It looked like we had it in the bag until Minamino came on and spoiled the party but it was more penalty heroics from Arsenal’s young guns which win the game for Mikel Arteta’s men.
Only one penalty was missed in the shoot-out, and luckily for us it was Liverpool’s unlucky youngster Rhian Brewster who smacked his spot kick against the bar, meaning he could shoot off to play a few reels at the real money casino games. This left our captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang to finish the game with his spot-kick which he duly despatched to win us the tie.
