The Gunners  made it difficult for themselves after falling behind to a goal from Sam Clucas. The Englishman was found in the penalty area and cooly tucked the ball underneath the outstretched Petr Cech on 22 minutes.

The second half saw a resurgent Arsenal fight back to take the points. On 51 minutes, the Beast, Sead Kolasinac fired home from inside the area.

Before the Bosnian turned provider as he cut back from the left for Aaron Ramsey’s winner – his 50th goal for the club.

The win marks the third on the bounce for Arsene Wenger’s side and maintains their 100% record at home.

Meust Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette all played together as an attacking trio for only the second time – but their main threat came from elsewhere. Kolasinac’s second-half productivity gave the Gunners the impetus to fight back.

It wasn’t enough to move up  the table, Wenger’s side remain 5th in the Premier League.

    In my opinion we should only revert to the 343 formation for games against certain teams and predominantly away from home. We are a much more fluent, efficient and attractive team playing 4231 but yes I understand that the change is to compensate for our defensive deficiency but that’s the problem I have with it..why don’t we cut out the defective element instead of compensating for it? Bellerin fit and on form..no problem at right back. The Tank/Beast/Hulk at left back..enough said. Centre back is our Achilles heel with only koschelny meriting a start. 2 decent centre half’s solves half the problem whilst still giving opportunity to chambers and holding if they have what it takes beyond just potential. I liked the mustafi I saw playing for Valencia and never noticed he never stays on his feet back then so if it ain’t working out…I like the look of Traowski(spelling) at Burnley and think he would suit, same with harry Maguire who I first clocked for when he was at Sheffield United, Lewis dunk at Brighton who was a massive reason they got promoted from championship so definitely battle hardened, Mawson at Swansea also. Yes I would take van djke over any of them too but I have been banging on about getting him since halfway through his first season at Celtic so I’m just not going there…the second half of the problem is defensive midfielder. As I have said to the point of going insane, fernandinho is the catalyst for that Man City midfield and attack, matic allows for Utd to dominate possession, kante’s perpetual motion, graft and tenacity wins teams the league, wanyama and dier coincide with rottenham over taking us…defensive midfielder is an essential position and we are the only top level team without one. William Carvalho is the perfect fit for us and will become a superstar in the premier league..so a flat back 4 with our current full backs and proper centre backs with proper defensive midfielder alongside Xhaka or Jack, Sanchez left Ozil centre welbz/iwobi/nketia(spelling) right with lacca up top and we have a team that would be hard to contain and loaded with goals all over the shop.
