Band electrode’ Arsenal retakes first place… Arteta “a game like a rollercoaster”
Arsenal of the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) recaptured the league lead in three days.
Arsenal won 4-2 바카라 in the 2022-2023 EPL Aston Villa held at Villa Park in Birmingham, England on the 18th (local time).
It was a dramatic victory. Arsenal, who had not won a single game in February, started off badly by conceding the opening goal to Ollie Watkins in the early stages of the game. Receiving the ball from behind, Watkins made a personal breakthrough and connected it with a powerful left-footed shot.
Arsenal immediately launched a counterattack. In the 12th minute of the first half, Ben White, who received Jorginho’s pass, connected it with a cross, but Tyrone Mings was caught on the toe just before it was connected to Eddie Nketia. Arsenal balanced the game in the 16th minute of the first half. Bukayo Saka connected the ball kicked by the opposing defender with a header with a left-footed direct shot.
Riding the momentum, Arsenal increased the intensity of their attack, but Villa counterattacked. After trapping a cross from Alex Moreno in the 31st minute of the first half, Philippe Coutinho scored with a calm shot aimed at the corner of the opponent’s goal.
Arsenal turned the game around in the 16th minute of the second half. Oleksandr Zinchenko, who received a pass from Martin Odegaard, shook the net with a left-footed mid-range shot. After the score was tied 2-2, the two teams exchanged attacks until the end of the game, aiming for a goal.
The direction of the match was decided only in the extra time of the match. Around 3 minutes of added time in the second half, Jorginho attempted a mid-range shot from outside the penalty box, and the ball hit the post, hit goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, and went into the goal. Arsenal won 4-2 after Garviel Martinelli’s extra goal.
Starting with Everton on the 3rd, Arsenal, which was sluggish with 1 draw and 2 losses in 3 games, finally reported its first win after escaping from the ‘February Curse’. Arsenal, who took 3 points, beat Manchester City, who drew 1-1 with Nottingham Forest, by 2 points and rose to the top again. Coach Miguel Arteta said, “It was a rollercoaster-like game,” and “we showed good skills and abilities.”
