NOVEMBER - A month to forget
With an away trip to Lille being the only tough match in November you would expect it to be all wins. However the game of football can be rather unpredictable...
2.11.11 - - Lille 0-1 Arsenal
It could be said that Lille were slightly on top. However the Gunners triumphed thanks to a tidy finish from Fernando Llorente and a superb performance from young goalkeeper Wojciech Szscesny. This result gave Arsenal a great chance to qualify from their group top.
5.11.11 - - Arsenal 2-0 Stoke - The Potters were gunned down
David Alaba 27'
Edinson Cavani 61
8.11.11 - - Swansea 3-0 Arsenal - What Happened?
Well what did happen? The Gunners had smashed everyone in their way, but for some reason, the team didn't show up. It is rumoured that some of the players told Geoff Keeling that it was because of the long coach journey down to Swansea, Keeling was not happy and he made sure the players knew how he felt.
19.11.11 - - Arsenal 5-0 Wigan - Aaaaand we're back!
Jack Wilshere (pen) 23', (pen) 44'
Shinji Kagawa 41' 58'
Maynor Figueroa 78'
The Gunners were itching to set the record straight and they did at the expense of Wigan. Wilshere yet again putting in a top drawer performance and Kagawa played very well also.
23.11.11 - - Arenal 5-0 Otelul
Nicolas Otemendi 3'
Fernando Llorente 7', 29'
Antoine Griezmann 17'
Shinji Kagawa 88'
26.11.11 - - West Brom 2-0 Arsenal - The Gunners lose again
Well this was an appauling performance from Keeling's men. It was reported that he went berserk at them after the final whistle. Who can blame him? That should have been a comfortable win for the Gunners.
30.11.11 - - West Ham 1-1 Arsenal (1-4 on Penalties) - Arsenal are lucky
Edinson Cavani 3'
Although Arsenal dominated the match but they couldn't find a 2nd goal. Fortunately the shootout was easy, West Ham missed 3 penalties.
It was quite a poor month for the Gunners. However it wasn't too costly as the teams around Arsenal also slipped up. This meant that Arsenal has a 3 point advantage and a game in hand. All they could do now was forget about this month and focus on December
