Arsenal (H) – Verdict

That will not please the moaners. No plan B needed when you can tear a team to shreds with plan A!

First win over Arsenal since the days of Hibbitt, Gray and Richards and for 25 minutes or so we were almost as good as the half hour or so in 1971 when we put five past the then double winners.

And it could have been 5-0 as Jota hit the post and Neves was denied a second free kick delicacy by the merest of touches.

After the break it was just keep what we have, but even then we could have added a couple more before Arsenal gained their consolation.

Smiles back on faces and the Euro dream remains!
