I know it’s kind of hard to see what happens here, so let me paint a picture: Özil picks up the ball from Welbs right next to the touchline, and casually shields it from Danny Rose and Dele for about 5 minutes. When he’s finished, he finds Hector Bellerin with a no-look flick. It’s not often I say “I wish I could have been sitting with Spurs fans,” but the ones in the crowd here must get such a good view of this humiliation of their players.
This was an exciting but not totally satisfying game, as we drew 2-2 with Tottenham on a rainy March night. The Gunners showed good character after being sent down to ten men, as Alexis Sanchez scored an important and hilarious equalizer in the 76th minute.
David Ospina made nine saves in this match, the most by a Gunners’ goalkeeper in a Premier League game since Lukasz Fabianski (also 9) v. Liverpool in April 2009.
