Arsene impressed with display at Goodison

He was asked if he felt that last season's unbeaten campaign was repeatable, and said:

"We've played one game. Yes, we played well. We tried to play football, to go forward and score goals and today it worked, but we tried that the whole season last year, and we will try to do that this season, but how far we can go, I don't know.

"There was a positive attitude from my players. For big periods in the game we played well, although you could see we are not all there physically. Our level dropped a little bit, but overall we showed some great qualities.

"What impressed me the most is that we were able to move the ball quickly and that we looked like we could score when it was needed."

I agree 100 percent with what he said, but I feel that a key factor will be getting Fabregas to ditch the Chris Waddle haircut.
