A clean sheet, a good performance or a wasted opportunity?
Arsene says: “We have shown drive – 90 minutes of quality. We have show maturity.”
It’s hard to describe, I’m a little disappointed we didn’t score, but I felt that we had a good game, controlled the game, were the dominant force.
It was a cagey start by boths side, with Milan having the better of the first 15 mins, but as the game grew, so did we. Flamini was outstanding and our overall play was quick, collective and precise.
But we couldn’t score, we tried, we had shots, but they were all at the keeper…
We lost Toure after 10 mins to a hamstring injury, but his replacement Senderos played admirely.
We played well in the first half, with Eduaro, Fabregas, Adebayor and Flamini all had chances but it was 0-0 in the first half. In the second half, we came out guns blazing, played really well but didn’t really have any clear cut chances.
But… with 30 seconds to go, Walcott, on a substitute, dazzled the left back and sent a cross to the far post. Who was there? Adebayor, no keeper, open goal. Hit the bar! We could have won it… and he looked embarrassed.
