Arsenal Not Unbeatable

Arsenal Not Unbeatable

So, here we go again. We seem to be going into each game at the moment with the same opinions and views, an Everton win is needed, well, more specifically when focusing on the future of Ronald Koeman, one is needed for him.

It is almost 15 years ago to the day that Wayne Rooney announced himself to the world with a moment of magic against Arsenal, how the Blues could do with this again at Goodison Park this afternoon.

Struggling in the Premier League, all but out of the Europa League now, following Thursday's defeat against Lyon, the pressure is really mounting on Koeman and as much as this game might not decide his fate anything but a draw will do little to appease those who feel the Dutchman ISN'T going to be able to turn things around.

Arsenal haven't started the season as they would have hoped and the Gunners have been notoriously poor travellers in recent times so this gives Koeman hope - in his pre-match conference he pointed to this and the fact Arsene Wenger's side, quite rightly so, aren't 'unbeatable.'

Koeman was quoted by the BBC: 'If you look back to last season, we had some great games against some of the big teams in the Premier League. And why not against Arsenal? Arsenal is not unbeatable, it's also not the strongest team away from home this season.'

Why not indeed? However, we'll need strong backing at Goodison and several players will have to step up but could that 'season defining moment' that is often spoken about come, one way or another, this afternoon?
