Arsenal Football Club Runs Out of Ammunition in 3-0 Defeat

by on Friday, April 14th, 2017

At first, gameweek 32 of the Premier League season seemed rather typical. Everything went according to the script; Toni Morrison’s “master narrative” seemed contented to serve us up few wrinkles. However, this week was not entirely without drama.

Tottenham kicked off the weekend by putting Watford to the sword in a 4-0 romp. Dele Alli opened the scoring with an immense curler from outside the box. Having just woke up from my slumber, this goal was like a shot of caffeine to jump start my Saturday morning. Another Englishman, Eric Dier, added a second before talismanic winger Heung-Min Son netted a third to leave a discombobulated Watford gasping for air at half-time. Tottenham snuffed any hopes for a comeback when Son scored in the 54th minute. While this win continues Tottenham’s pursuit of Chelsea for the title, the fact that striker Vincent Janssen has still yet to find his feet in Harry Kane’s absence means that Tottenham might find themselves lacking punch against bigger teams more capable of constricting the midfield.

Like Tottenham, City made short work of Hull en route to a 3-1 win. The pick of the goals was Fabian Delph’s. Following the successful defense of a corner, City’s Silva brilliantly shielded the ball before starting a corner kick that finished with a left-footed piledriver from Delph. Considering his lack of minutes this year due to injury, Delph will certainly be overjoyed with his effort.

While Spurs and City coasted to results, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side faced the prospect of an embarrassing away loss to Stoke. In an odd choice, Klopp started both Coutinho and Firmino on the bench. Meanwhile, promising 17 year-old forward, Ben Woodburn, and fellow youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold both found themselves in the starting eleven. This gamble did not pay off and Liverpool went into the locker room at half-time down 1-0. Klopp soon yanked off both youth players and turned to the aforementioned Brazilian duo for a spark. Instead of just a spark, he found fireworks as a Coutinho goal in the 70th minute was soon followed by a Firmino wonder strike right out of FIFA that turned the game on its head and led Liverpool to an important victory.

In other results, Chelsea continued their march to the title with a 1-3 win versus Bournemouth, Man U beat a soon to be relegated Sunderland, and Everton had another customary goal fest in a 4-2 win against a largely reinvigorated Leicester.

The only off-script moment of the weekend was Crystal Palace’s improbable 3-0 win against an increasingly dispirited Arsenal. Following their smash and grab vanquishing of Chelsea two weeks ago, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised by this result. Arsenal may have had 72% of the possession and three times as many passes as Crystal Palace, but they had only three shots on goal to Palace’s six. Their inability to put together successful attacking moves reflects the stale of Arsene Wenger’s decades long tenure as coach. Sam Allardyce may not have Palace playing beautiful football, but he does have them playing winning football, which works for a team in the relegation scrap at the beginning of the season.

Gameweek 32 did not offer an immense amount of intrigue, but with only six gameweeks left, every result matters, and each fixture becomes a cup final.
