Gunners show heart, don’t follow through as hot keeper prepares Arsenal

It stings on many levels.

Arsenal, the favorites in the Premier League, were in the lead with Sporting half an hour before the end, and they just needed to cross the line to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Then came the impeccable genius of Pedro Goncalves, who crossed Aaron Ramsdale from over 45, maybe 50 yards from the net. 1:1 in the 62nd minute.

Arsenal were not only in danger of being eliminated from the competition; The Gunners are now facing the possibility of extra time and 120 rather than 90 minutes for some of their players ahead of Sunday’s Premier League visit from Crystal Palace. Gabriel Magalhaes, Granit Xhaka, Gabriel Martinelli, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Ramsdale went 120 minutes.

And there’s the psychological side: Arsenal put their hearts into it and it was clear from the exhortations of Martin Odegaard’s replacement at the Emirates Stadium that the Gunners were very concerned about winning any offer.

But they will also look at the xG numbers – 1.89-1.18 – and feel like they missed a chance. Arsenal were given four “big chances” by FotMob against just one for Sporting but lost 15–13 and lost at home.

They are a strong group and we saw how the Gunners rallied after the loss to Man City, and after the failure in the first leg, left for Sporting. However, Mikel Arteta has a significant couple of days ahead of him.
