Football : Arsenal 4-0 Wigan Athletics

Nothing more than a win had been a good result here. Even a 2-1 win would have been bad considering Arsenal's last two matches against Manchester United and Manchester City. Arsenal needed to batter Wigan and needed to keep a clean sheet, and they complied.

Well, the first half was typical arsenal football, lots of good football, lots of chances but only 1 goal from all of the chances they created. Arsenal could have sealed the game in the first half if they had taken half the chances they created. Thomas Vermaelen scored the 1st goal for Arsenal from a corner. Vermaelin is not a big center half but he has a great leap and wins more headers than he loses.

Second half, Arsenal were 2-0 up after a wonderful strike from who other than Thomas Vermaelen. He ran from his own half with the ball, pass it to eboue who gave it back to Vermaelin just outside the 18 yard box. A wonderful strike by Vermaelin. I don't think many other defenders are capable of scoring such goals other than a product of Ajax. Third goal was a deflected shot. Eduardo had a shot on goal, took a couple of touches, 1st from a wigan defender and second from eboue who more than likely will claim that goal. Arsenal's captain made a good run in the box and scored from a pinpoint cross by Bendtner. Cesc Fabregas looked disinterested and not that happy after scoring the goal. Well, that was it. 4-0 to the Arsenal. Arsenal could have conceded a couple of goals but luck was on Arsenal's side today.

I had three arsenal defenders selected in my Fantasy Football team and they scored a lot of points for me, specially Thomas Vermaelen.
