Monday night Premier League football is providing fans with plenty to talk about as Arsenal take on West Bromwich Albion tonight.
At half-time, the Gunners are leading the West Midlands side 1 – 0 but if it were not for the heroics of Nacho Monreal, things could be a whole lot different for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Having gone ahead through yet another Alexandre Lacazette goal, the Gunners are looking to leap-frog their opponents in the Premier League table and drag their points tally into double figures after six games.
With both Manchester clubs leading the charge at the top of the table with 16 points and Arsenal already a whopping nine point behind, victory is an absolute must for the London club if they wish to finally reset the clock that has been ticking since they last won the title back in 2004.
It seems that Monreal is all too aware of the weight of time as when West Brom broke free and were all but guaranteed of a goal, having beaten Petr Cech, the Spaniard was on-hand to clear the ball off the line and preserve the Gunners’ slim advantage.
Take a look.
Obviously, Gunners fans were duly impressed.
What a save from monreal. Unreal.
