Arsenal's performance tonight was sublime. It was an absolute pleasure to watch at times, we played some fantastic stuff.
Although I'm very happy with the result and the way we got it, I can't help but feel that the gloss of the performance has been taken away slightly.
The sight of Robin Van Persie hobbling off around the pitch with his boot in his hand dampened my mood.
He was immense today and you could really see the difference in his game. He was sharp and up for it. It's a shame his evening ended so soon as I was really enjoying watching him play.
We have seen RVP limp off the pitch so many times and for me it has got to the point where I worry for him when he makes a challenge. Today he even got injured taking a shot!
He is having an X-ray on his ankle as the extent of the injury isn't known. I'm seriously bracing myself for the worst.
Without doubt Van Persie is a very important player to this Arsenal side. When he is fit he makes a big difference to us.
It makes me feel for him when I see that he is beginning to show his true form and then out of nowhere he gets another injury.
Is Van Persie made of glass? I hope for his sake he can get over these injury problems or I say regrettably, he is becoming a liability for Arsenal.
Sorry for sounding pessimistic on a night when Arsenal performed superb.
Keep it Goonerish..................
