4. Your defence is in trouble…

While the title race might seem like a two-horse race at the moment, it wasn’t always the case. Indeed, rivals Manchester United were once in it. That was until they lost 7-0 to Liverpool – I know you’re smirking right now.

For a large part of the season, United had bragging rights of being the only team to beat Arsenal. While this has since changed, it was the case heading into the fixture at the Emirates Stadium.

It looked likely history would repeat itself when Marcus Rashford scored an impressive goal from distance early in the game. Thankfully, Nketiah brought the game level with a header before Saka scored a better goal than Rashford and Martinez equalised in quick succession.

The game was then begging for one side to grab the winner for half an hour. In all honesty, it looked certain the game wouldn’t end a draw, but it would’ve been harsh on the team who concedes.

Thanks to an unorthodox but well improvised finish in the 90th minute, Eddie Nketiah secured his brace and secured all three points for Arsenal.

That goal received the largest roar the Emirates Stadium had seen throughout the season so far. It was a great moment for the man who received plenty of doubters when filling in for the injured Gabriel Jesus. If the Gunners do go on to win the league, Nketiah’s involvement will prove to be astronomically large.
