After the match at Goodison Park, Arsenal fans were left speechless and in fear. Gunners were defeated 3:0 by Everton, but what really hurt was the fact that the North London team was inferior during the game. The defense wasn’t able to stop Lukaku, Giroud wandered on the pitch like a ghost, Ramsey and Oxlade-Chamberlain couldn’t change anything after they were introduced as subs. The only player with decent performance in the away team was Cazorla, but alone, he was helpless to do anything. In fact, this play by Coleman shows how inferior Arsenal was:
And just to remind our readers, a few weeks ago, Arsenal was a title contender. Now, they will have to face battle for the 4th position and qualifications for next season in the Champions League. Five gameweeks before end of the season, Everton is one point behind them, but the Toffees also have one match less than the Gunners. And as a reminder, for 17 consecutive seasons, Arsenal has finished among the top 4 teams in the Premier League, but now even that streak can be ended. We will see a reaction from manager Wenger and players in the upcoming weeks, but their only chance to save (one more) disappointing season is to win the FA Cup. They will face Wigan in the semifinal, but the question is, will they manage to face this crisis in time. So the question that repeats for some time still stands – has the time come for Wenger to leave Arsenal, or do the fans still have faith in him ?
