Everton have been struggling of late and historically Arsenal have always played will against them, beat them 5-2 on the reverse fixture earlier this season. Next weekend will be a true test.

That performance was nothing shy of embarrassing. I was really looking forward to this game starting but already had questions when I saw the starting XI. We were going into the game defensively minded with two CDM's and Ozil was out on the wing where he was virtually useless. Our first and best chance of the game was called offside when Aubameyang was clearly on in the 25th minute, and it wasn't until past the 60th when we were 1-0 down when we created another chance, nice hit from Wilshere, but an easy and only save from Lloris on the day. Lacazette had some squandered opportunities at the end but I can't blame him to much because he should have been in the starting XI and he rushed his chances because he wants to start. Countless defensive errors, carless passing and absolutely disastrous in the final third. The downward spiral continues, Arsenal fans are used to saying at this point in this season there goes the title, now we are saying there goes the top 4. The manager has to go.

The most dominant 1-0 win I've seen in a long time. If we were more clinical, the game could've easily ended 4-0. Mousa controlled the midfield all game. Its so beautiful to watch him play the game with such ease. About had a heart attack the last few minutes of the game, but in the end, we fully deserved the three points.

7 points from three difficult games. Great return! We are clicking at the right time and are in fantastic form. With Chelsea's issues and Liverpool's defensive issues, I'm confident in a top four finish!

HUGE game Tuesday against one of the most in form teams in Europe, Juventus.

North London is Lilywhite! COYS!

I agree with your synopsis of the game but as for the last statement. North London is and will remain red. Because the last time the League was won at their ground...

So what're your thoughts on the rest of the season? Top 4 Predictions? Do you think Arsenal should pull a United like last year and go all in on trying to win Europa?

Of course anything can happen, but on current form, I'd say the Top 4 would be:
1.) City
2.) Man U
3.) Spurs
4.) Chelsea

For Spurs, we are the most fit squad in England. We are fully healthy and finally have quality depth in most positions. I hope we can continue our form for the remainder of the season, make a cup run and go all out in Europe and see where it takes us.

As much as I'd love Wenger to stay 😉, surely he has got to go!!?? Who would you want to replace Wenger?

Also, summer expectations? Who leaves, who do you buy?

For Spurs, pay Alderweireld the money he deserves, sell Rose and Sissoko. Finding a striker to back up Harry has proven difficult. Would love to sign a young understudy to Dembele. I can see us signing Ryan Sessagnon as well.

Yes, yesterday pretty much seals an all but squashed top 4 chances, we play City at home in the League next and I cannot see us taking more than a point away from that game. Our chances of winning the Europa are much higher.

Of course anything can happen, but on current form, I'd say the Top 4 would be:
1.) City
2.) Man U
3.) Spurs
4.) Chelsea

I agree with the top two 100%, nothing chancing that. I think the 3rd and 4th spots are really gunna come down to the wire between Spuds, Chelski, and Liverpool. The way the Blues have been playing of late I say they have the worst chance of making the top four and I could see Arsenal taking 5th and them dropping 6th

For Spurs, we are the most fit squad in England. We are fully healthy and finally have quality depth in most positions. I hope we can continue our form for the remainder of the season, make a cup run and go all out in Europe and see where it takes us.

I don't only want Spurs to lose to Juve because I hate them, but because I have been rooting for Juve to win it all overtime Arsenal falls out and Juve is still in it. Being Italian I am dying to see Gigi win it, he deserves it and what a year to do it with Italy not in the WC, bring something massive to their country

As much as I'd love Wenger to stay ��, surely he has got to go!!?? Who would you want to replace Wenger?

Arsene Wenger's time was up at the end of the 2011-12 season. Any other manager as a top club getting the results he has and the way the team has progressed would have been fired a long time ago. The board is just afraid we won't recover because Wenger has been around longer than the lot of them. Back in 2012 I wanted Guardiola and it was said he wanted to come here, obviously that is not gunna happen now. With Conte's job in jeopardy I think he would do well at Arsenal. Other options I like would include Ancelotti and Simeone

Also, summer expectations? Who leaves, who do you buy?

Cech, gone. Please for the love of god. He has been a solid keeper and saves us a lot of points but he makes so many careless mistakes and you look at him and he just shrugs it off. Now would be the time to move past him because he is still worth something and the perfect replacement is Oblak from Atletico who is reportedly unsettled. Another obvious player is a CDM... we have not had a successful one since Patrick Vieira. A player who is young, solid and we have been linked to a lot is Jean Seri. Thirdly is a world class defender. I think when Kos and Mustafi have their day they are fantastic at the back, but due to the lack of competition there is no threat to their places and they lack consistency. Also both of them get too far forward and we get caught out on the break way too much. Our midfield is extremely congested I say some housekeeping needs to be done there (Xhaka I think his time is dwindling and El Neney has never really impressed me). Cazorla being out for so long won't be resigned and Niles should be loaned out. Tie down Wilshere and Ramsey to long term contracts. Then bring in a promising young star by the name of Cristian Pavón. Boy does this guy look good and he will be available for a reported £33m which is a steal in todays market, he looks like a 22 year old Alexis.

For Spurs, pay Alderweireld the money he deserves, sell Rose and Sissoko. Finding a striker to back up Harry has proven difficult. Would love to sign a young understudy to Dembele. I can see us signing Ryan Sessagnon as well.

If Spurs do not win anything this year, they are going to have trouble hanging onto a few players, namely Alderweireld and Kane. Both are on very low wages indeed and I think both of them are at their point in there career that they want to see silverware before it is too late. Toby to Barca and Kane to Real Madrid is what i see happening

With ManU losing to Newcastle, I think that opens the chance to someone else taking the 2nd spot right up.

I definitely agree with you. Time to move on with Cech. CDM and another CB for you guys would be massive. We destroyed you guys in midfield yesterday. You need a guy like Dier or Wanyama who puts in a shift for the team and does the hard work.

I agree with you on Alderweireld. He is 29. Do I want him to stay, absolutely. But at his age, if a team came in and offered crazy money, move on? Perhaps. Davidson Sanchez is 21, is still raw, but has been immense this year.

I would have to disagree, for now, about Harry Kane. He won't leave this summer. If 2-3 years go by and we've won no silverware, I could see him potentially making that move. But no way he leaves this summer.

The Man U loss was nice. Puts us only four points behind them.

But since you are a Juve fan as well, I think this is going to be a difficult match for us. But that's what the Champions League is about. Competing against the best. A 1-1 draw or even a 2-1 loss in Italy and I can see us with a decent shout at Wembley. Exciting times!

Who does Arsenal play in Europa, again? 😁😁

Real Madrid are going to be desperate for a striker in the summer, Benzema has been dreadful. Prepare yourself for a big offer from them.

Ehhhh far from a Juve fan so to speak haha, I have one team and that team is tattooed on my arm, forever one team. but when it comes to int I support Italy and USA. Seeing as we are not in the competition and don't make it far I just want to see an Italy legend win it

We are playing a Swedish team called Ostersund, a club that has only been around since 1996 and their stadium seats 1/10 of the Emirates.

Wow! What a game! The first ten minutes were horrible! We looked super dodgy and nervous at the back. But what a comeback! We completely dominated them most of the game. Dembele is a special, special player. Lamela was a great decision to start. He was spectacular! Such a mature performance from the team. We would've lost this game 5-0, 6-0 in the past.

2-2 against one of the best European teams in the world, what a result! We could've won this match.

Since Juventus moved to their new stadium in 2011, they have never, in any competition, blew a 2 goal lead.

Tough match a Wembley in a few weeks, but, for now, advantage Spurs.

Absolutely buzzing!
