So at last GOOGLE is censored in The Republic of China… Hmm, anyway to more pressing matters, week three is nearly up and now as everything is gradually taking course, let the fans have their say.
What a day it was at the Emirates yesterday! A little bit shaky in the gunners’ defense as from the first game of the season, they still had a lot to polish in the London derby against Westham United. Marco Arnautovic was the sole striker for The Hummers and took the responsibility to place them in front just before the halftime break.
A short-lived lead was soon to be cancelled by a Nacho Monreal banger just inside the box through some defensive mistake by The Hummers. In addition, the Emirates was welcoming back its former gunners’ battalion in Westham as Fabianski, Lucas Perez and Jack Wilshere were The Gunners’ opponents for the day.
Arsenal came motivated enough for the second half of the match and placing immense pressure on their opponents, led to an own goal from Issa Diop. Unai’s introduction of fresh legs from Danny Welbeck to replace Aubameyang bore fruits as he confidently rifled a shot past the defense and goalie to go on the score sheet for a third goal in added time.
Manchester City had an early kick-off away to Championship title holders- Wolverhampton, and as tough as it was with the wolves defense seemingly proving a hard nut to crack, they had to chase for a point a piece. Joao Moutinho set up Willy Boly for a lead in the 57th minute and moments later Aymeric Laporte gave the Cityzens a sigh of relief as he rifled a header past the Wolves goalie to end the match at a 1-1 draw.
The You Never Walk Alone- battalion was at The Anfield against Brighton and escaped by a whisker following an early 23rd minute goal from Mohammed Salah and a neat pass from Roberto Firmino for an assist.
Right now, as I write, Watford is ahead 1-0 against Crystal Palace and if there may be any changes in the match, it’ll still go down the books as soccer. Unpredictable! G’day.
