Arsenal Blows Up the Hornets
Yesterday, they saw lots of roadkill.
More accurately, swatted Hornets.
Arsenal was firing on all cylinders as they blasted the home side, 1-3.
Well, trois points are still trois points, no matter where you find them.

On top of that, not many miracles happen when the favorite gets a shot from the spot only nine minutes after the curtain went up:
Santi Cazorla took full advantage:.
These days, even the machines are conspiring against underdogs.
A few years back, that probably wouldn't have been a goal.

The Gunners spent the second half switching to glide.
But like every good sport, Arsenal also gave away a consolation goal so the locals had at least one reason to feel all warm and fuzzy:
Arsenal's typical defensive style finally made an appearance.
Roberto Pereyra can stick this strike on his résumé.
