Liverpool vs Arsenal: Saturday, 4 April, 2015. Emirates Stadium.
Arsene Wenger and his men over the weekend made it seven wins from seven games as they continued their impressive run of form, pilling up pressure on Chelsea in a bid to make a late title charge.
But what did we learn from the 4-1 win against Liverpool at the Emirates?
Bellerin can keep Debuchy on the bench longer than expected
The 19-year-old Spanish right-back has been given the opportunity by Wenger this season due to injury to first choice right-back, Mathieu Debuchy. And he yet again performed well and got the ball rolling on the 4-1 victory at home to Liverpool.
Bellerin is the quickest player at the club, but he has so much more to offer than just pace as he can score goals, beautiful once for that matter.
And for such a young defender he already has a bit of everything. Aside the penalty he conceded, on several other occasions in the match, he dealt with the pace of Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling and showed great positional awareness throughout the game.
You can start to see the possibility of him keeping Debuchy on the bench longer than we all expected.
Mesut Ozil is close to his best:
The transfer record-breaking Arsenal man has started to answer his critics in recent weeks since returning from injury and once more he delivered, scoring a spectacular free-kick from 30-yards out, which left Liverpool keeper, Simon Mignolet, grasping thin air.
With his performances in recent weeks, it is almost certain that the former Real Madrid man is getting close to his best.
Aaron can complete the midfield trio:
The Welshman scored and assisted for Wales against Israel during the international break and continued his good recent form against Liverpool.
For a player that is not blessed with great pace, he gets all around the pitch with ease.
Ramsey picked up two assists on the day and was a contender for the Man of the Match award.
The 24-year-old was part of an Arsenal midfield trio, with Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla, a combination that caused all sort of trouble for Liverpool on the day.
Francis Coquelin: The “Talisman”
The 23-year-old Frenchman has become a bit of a talisman for Arsenal in the second half of this season. He has added some much needed solidity in front of the back four and last weekend was no different.
Coquelin continued to confound his critics as he put in another strong performance against Liverpool.
In the first-half of the match, the Scourcers found it difficult to penetrate the Gunners back four and Coquelin was the reason behind it all.
As it happens, Coquelin has become one of the first names on the first-team sheet and it will take something really special to shift him.
Olivier Giroud marches on…
Even after winning the Barclays Premier League player of the month award for the month of March, Giroud just seems to get better and better and is in the form of his life.
It’s now 10 goals in 10 games and 14 goals in 20 Premier League games this season for the 28-year-old star
It is not just goals that Giroud brings to the team; he is a really good target man and has such a good touch for such a physical player. His hold up play is one of his best attributes and he really benefits from having the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil around him.
The French striker capped off a great day for Arsenal with a fantastic late goal, which has seen Arsenal jump ahead of Manchester City.
Arsenal now finds themselves just seven points behind Chelsea, who they face on the 26th April.
