Wenger made many a change in personnel for this must win cup game and his jittery Arsenal team still beat a Lpool brimming with confidence. Suarez and Sturridge failed to score against Monreal, Jenkins and Fabianski. Arsenal now face Everton in the quarter finals of this proud countries premier cup competition.
After the defeat to Lpool last week, this is a huge win for the club and will help get the lads back to some sort of normality for the Bayern tie. I hope. GULP!
It was a big win after a few poor games. Flamini's return made a big difference and I think Ozil working with a little more pace around him looked better as well.
In the end Liverpool would have needed 2 penalties, both claims in areas and situations that would very likely not have resulted in goals, to force a replay. Had Podolski not clumsily touched Suarez I don't think a goal would have followed. Same for the spot were Ox bunped into Suarez.
Wonder what this means for Wilshire, I mean at this point of time I would choose Ox over Wilshire, both in the center and on the wing.
