Arsenal 2-0 West Brom
Of all the things that need to happen this summer – clear-out, existential reappraisal, signings that exude ambition – nonsense about the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are not one of them.
Better late than never, but Sanchez is back to his dangerous best. A trademark bullet from outside the box and a finger-licking free-kick saw off the toothless Baggies in a game in which we should have been more ruthless but, somewhat typically, weren’t.
What would I do if I was Arsenal? I’d start the wooing now.
For our fidgety Chilean, I’d be fedexing round several cases of Winalot for his pooches.
If ‘Winalot’ doesn’t signal ambition, I don’t what will.
I should be in PR.
