Yesterday I said that Arsenal needed to nullify the threat of Lukaku in order to secure the points away to Everton. What I neglected to mention is that they also needed to put in the required performance to deserve a victory.  Perhaps I've taken that for granted recently. We'd been unbeaten since the start of [...]

No time for losing ourselves in a metaphorical cave of melancholy made by a weekend derby defeat, as it's bottom of the league Leicester who make their way to The Emirates this evening.
