Combined Fixed VIP Matches Arsenal needs Jesus to return as Man Utd offers a timely reminder
Arsenal and Sporting Lisbon drew 2-2 in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 matches, Man Utd defeated Real Betis 4-1, and West Ham defeated AEK Larnaca 2-0.
Moreover, how can West Ham replicate their European Conference League success in the Premier League? For Mikel Arteta and Arsenal, Gabriel Jesus’ long-awaited return will come at a critical moment.
We lacked a little of that last touch but we are without four vital attackers so we will accept the draw, said Arteta after their 2-2 draw with Sporting.
Jesus returned to training this week, so it would have been tempting to name him to the team for their Europa League first-leg match.
The fact that there is still enough time in the season for him to have a significant influence, even in this tie’s second leg, has prevented Arsenal from hurrying him back.
In place of Jesus and Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli was used up front. The only other “senior” forward among the replacements is Emile Smith Rowe since Leandro Trossard is also injured.
Sporting had the most of the clear-cut opportunities, while Arsenal had the majority of the possession. In the final 20 minutes, the visitors ran out of options and had little to draw from the bench.
With 12 crucial Premier League games and a showdown with Sporting left, Jesus can provide the team with a much-needed boost.
Reliable Football Matches Win Man Utd remind Europe how far they’ve come under Ten Hag
The saying goes that playing a team after a loss is like battling a wounded animal, but in recent years, playing Manchester United after a bad loss has been an invitation to further suffering.
Even after United’s worst-ever loss to Liverpool on Sunday, there was no anticipation of a similar performance against Real Betis, underscoring once more the excellent work Erik ten Hag is doing in Manchester.
He is aware of the resiliency of his team. The know. Real Madrid, the team that just destroyed the same Liverpool team that just defeated Manchester United, was held to a scoreless draw by Betis at the weekend.
Betis has since made a late charge into the La Liga Champions League spots. They are certainly no pushovers.
Yet, after United overcame a hurdle of their own design and dealt with the anxieties that Ayoze Perez’s shocking equalizer shot through them before halftime, they fended off their guests like a fly.
The fact that Betis were more pleased by the score of 4-1 than their opponents were reveals a lot about the attitude of the team Ten Hag has constructed.
And after the game, no one could have expressed it better than the manager.
This is not the first time this season that you see how a squad responds after suffering a setback, he told BT Sport.
Because it has already happened five or six times, we can start over and recover. This team has a personality.
This team most definitely has character. Yet given how unlikely to win the Premier League is, it would likely be sufficient to win at least one trophy in this competition.
Even while some may argue that it’s only the Europa Conference League, West Ham has gone nine games without a loss in European play.
With their 15 shots and 14 corners, among other statistics, Larnaca showed that even a side that has never advanced past the round of 16 in a European tournament can put a renowned Premier League squad to the test.
Although manager David Moyes was “disappointed” with the performance, the Hammers’ enormous domination at both ends ultimately took the game.
He is right to feel that way, too. West Ham struggled at times, showing just a small portion of the excellence they have shown over the past two years in the closing 15 minutes of the first half.
Yet a victory on the road counts as a victory in Europe. Michail Antonio, a regular starter up front for West Ham, returned to the lineup and scored two beautiful goals, his first back-to-back in 19 months.
Maxwell Cornet gained some crucial match time as they mostly handled the pressure from Larnaca while maintaining cool and calm.
They now have a crucial Premier League match this weekend against Aston Villa. Although miracles cannot be expected in the next few days, their triumph in Cyprus will have given them a much-needed confidence boost.
It’s surprising how even a squeaky-clean victory may be helpful at crucial moments.
In particular, domestically, West Ham must capitalize on the positives going into their next few games before the break. Come May 28, those matches may determine the fate of the Hammers.
