The good news is that we can finally say that Olivier Giroud is “on a roll” for Arsenal. The bad news is that Dimitar Berbatov – of all strikers in the Premier League – quite possibly eclipsed the Frenchman’s two goals against Fulham this afternoon, in a match that saw Fulham fighting back to steal a 3-3 draw at the Emirates.
Berbatov matched Giroud’s brace by scoring in the 29th and 67th minute and just when you stopped caring about the Bulgarian, he delivered. Umm, Man United who?!
Unfortunately, Mikel Arteta’s missed penalty in stoppage time added to the Gunners’ further woes, but Arsene Wenger refused to comment on it and just so you know, Arteta is still a quality player.
“Some players were a bit jaded before the game, they gave it their all today – but Fulham are good going forward,” said Wenger. “‘We played some fantastic stuff. Before the game we said we would try to dominate them which is hard here, but we managed that.”
