Wenger pleased with Arsenal comeback

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was left satisfied by a point at Everton on Saturday as his side came from two goals down to draw 2-2, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Despite having most of the possession in the first half, Arsenal struggled to penetrate the Everton defence, with Alexis Sanchez being played as the furthest man forward. As a result, they were punished at the other end when Seamus Coleman ghosted in to head Gareth Barry’s cross past Wojciech Szczesny.


The lead was doubled on the stroke of half time when Romelu Lukaku turned Per Mertesacker and ran at the Arsenal defence before finding Steven Naismith, who shot low into the net with the goal being allowed to stand despite the Scot appearing to be marginally offside.


Olivier Giroud replaced Sanchez at the break to give Arsenal more presence in attack, and after the Frenchman had three good chances to pull one back, Aaron Ramsey managed to do so with seven minutes left, when he converted Santi Cazorla’s low cross from close range.


The Gunners were then able to rescue a point in the final minute of normal time when Giroud headed in from Nacho Monreal’s delivery, leaving Wenger to praise the way his side kept going until the end.


“I think it’s a strong point because overall it was a game of quality against a good team. After going 2-0 down just before half-time we had to expose ourselves to counter-attacks, so to come back to 2-2 I think is a good point,” he said.


“It’s great for our belief to know that away from home and 2-0 down we have players like that to turn the game. Maybe it was offside, but those are the kinds of decisions that can go against you. What is most important is that we showed the spirit to fight and come back.’
