So while Reading – Arsenal didn’t provide the 12 goal thriller we all witnessed during the Capital One Cup earlier this year, the Premier League duo tried their absolute best to replicate the memorable encounter on Monday evening, netting seven as the Gunners secured a 5-2 win over the Royals to move them within two points of North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsene Wenger’s side looked impressive during the victory at the Madejski Stadium, all the better following the penalty shoot-out defeat to Bradford City in the Capital One Cup last week, with a majority of those who called for the Frenchman’s head last week silenced following the three points garnered against Brian Mcdermott’s Reading outfit.
A major part of their success against Reading was down to the midfield. The Royals may not be the most solid in the middle of the park, but the movement of Santi Cazorla, who netted a hat-trick, and Jack Wilshere allowed the Gunners to appear more fluid when pushing forward.
It comes as no surprise, in that case, to hear that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reveal that the club have been working on getting Cazorla and Wilshere in between the lines. It was evident on Monday night, with Arsenal causing numerous problems when pushing forward and no surprise to see the North London side come away with all three points.
