Arsenal 2 Sunderland 0 20/02/10
Today we saw a team that was better than the sum of it's parts. There were good performances throughout the side; Eboue was energetic, Song & Ramsay added solidity to proceedings, Nasri was a threat all afternoon, Fabregas saw a lot of the ball and made & scored the penalty ( yes, a penalty! it seems that the Eduardo embargo has been lifted) Vermaelan was as good as ever-possibly our most consistent player all season. Silvestre managed to cope adequately with a poor Sunderland attack, as did Clichy. Bendtner put himself about and was reasonably effective with the bonus of a goal. As for Wallcott; it wasn't all bad and his potential is there for all to see. Even Almunia manged to do what he is paid to do and make saves.
That Sunderland are no great shakes is secondary to the result and the three points. It's nice to look at the positives as a win was made more essential given that Manchester United had succumbed to Everton earlier in the day. As I have said in previous posts, it takes those players of quality selected by Wenger to overcome the handicaps of colleagues who are not good enough in order to carve out victories for the rest of the season if Arsenal are to finish on a high.
