Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham yesterday in the north London derby at the Emirate Stadium illustrated that some of the Gunners players are in need of a rest. The international break has come at a good time for some of the Arsenal players.

Unfortunately a number of Arsenal players will be travelling to play for their national teams all over the world. One player who is in need of a rest is Chilean international forward Alexis Sanchez.

The former-Barcelona star looks like he is simply exhausted and it has shown in his recent ineffective performances. For the usually energetic Sanchez to look tired must mean he that he really is on his knees fitness wise.

Arsenal’s French international striker Olivier Giroud is much-maligned, mostly by Gunners fans themselves. The club from north London have been constantly linked with upgrading the striker and signing a high-profile replacement for Giroud.

The former-Montpellier striker had lost his position as lone striker of late to Theo Walcott, but the England international’s injury against Sheffield Wednesday has meant Giroud has come back into the starting line-up.

Giroud has now scored six Premier League goals this season after netting against Swansea. Giroud has started just five league games this season. The French international has now scored in three consecutive matches and is in fine form.

Arsenal’s 2-1 Capital One Cup win over Tottenham in the third round was a rather strange one, not in the natural of the game, but the identity of the player who scored a brace.

French midfielder Mathieu Flamini is not known for his goalscoring prowess, as he had previously scored just 11 goals in over 200 appearances for the Gunners in two spells at the north London club.

He took the opening goal like a striker and his second goal was a strike any of the world’s best would have been proud of.

The first real goal threat came on 13 minutes through the visitors. Full-back Kieran Gibbs did well down the wing and crossed the ball into the Olivier Giroud, who failed to get meaningful contact. However the ball fell to Joel Campbell 12 yards out and the Costa Rican headed over the bar.

The Gunners took the lead on 26 minutes. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s 25 yard free-kick was parried by Michel Vorm, but French midfielder Mathieu Flamini was well-positioned to slot home.
