Sloppy Arsenal allow Anderlecht to claw back

Wow! Arsenal fans didn’t see that coming. At 3-0 the game was over and beyond Anderlecht reach. This was not so. Arsenal fans were treated with inexplicable buffoonery from Arsenal defense.

Arsenal dominated majority of the game but looked sloppy when caught out on the break by the Belgian side. They were able to soak in the Anderlecht attacks and went on to score three goals. Arteta scored from the spot, Sanchez scored a rebound from a free kick and the Ox scored the third from a brilliant run. At this point, Arsenal looked in complete control of the game.

In a surprising twist, Anderlecht became a threat and troubled the disconcerted Arsenal defense. From 3 nil down they managed to grab a draw.

With that result, Arsenal spurned the chance to make it to the next qualifying stage. They have also lost ground to challenge BVB for the top spot. It looks like we will have to accept the second best mantra again.
